04/10/2010 – Dah Sing Bank Integrates OceanFax with OceanFlow and Unit Trust Reporting to Streamline and Automate Business and Fax process for Increased Operational Efficiency

Brief Introduction

Dah Sing Bank applied OceanFax Fax Server for paperless E-fax application and integrates it with Unit Trust Reporting System and OceanFlow Approval System to automate and streamline investment fund service, including order generating, approval and fax processes, achieving the improved efficiency, reduced cost and enhanced safety.



Dah Sing Bank is Hong Kong-listed Dah Sing Banking Group’s major banking subsidiary. She is also the strategic investor of Bank of Chongqing.


Continuing her expansion in recent years and likes other financial-services organizations, every day, Dah Sing Bank’s staff from Investment Fund Division were busy in manually faxing a large volume of paper-based fund house orders via traditional fax machines. They were under great pressures including:


  • Low efficiency due to manual work, especially queuing up in peak hour for the limited numbers of fax machines
  • High operational cost due to high paper use and telephone cost
  • Lack of fax approval, report and archival
  • Disclosure of confidentiality
  • Accidental paper document destruction
  • Environmental pollution


OceanFax Solution

After an exhaustive and meticulous search, the Information Technology Division of Dah Sing Bank decided to go for the No.1 Fastest Growing & Award-winning OceanFax Fax Server provided by OceanX Technology Limited to achieve paperless e-Fax application, and integrates the server with her internal Unit Trust Reporting System and OceanX’s another flagship OceanFlow Approval System to streamline and automate the bank’s investment fund service, including fund house order generating, approval and fax processes.


How It Works

Once a user inputs data to Unit Trust Reporting System, the system will generate a fund house order. OceanFlow imports the order and starts an approval process. After Fund Manager approves the order with e-signature and e-stamp, the order will be passed to OceanFax to fax to Fund House. In the whole process, except that data input and order approval which requires manual processing, all the other steps are automated, which greatly improves efficiency and eliminates manpower. Besides, the transition from paper-based practice to paperless application drastically reduces paper use and operational cost as well as being friendly to environment.
