BLOM worked on special offers with some of the major car dealers in Lebanon, in
order to provide the best packages for its customers.
BLOM internally developed a workflow system to process all car loan applications,
thus benefiting from Electronic Archiving, as well as speed in approval and response
The most important achievement, however, lies in the instant grant service for car
loans. BLOM Bank has distinguished itself from other banks, by creating an
automatic scoring system that would provide an accurate feedback about the car loan
file. The scoring system provides the Credit Committee with clear and simple results
on whether to accept or reject the car loan application.
Moreover, the scoring system has created a paperless environment, and eliminated
many of the bureaucratic procedures.

            Benefits to BLOM:
        Sayarati Car Loan program has attracted a lot of clients. This program has empowered
        our brand image, and brand name. The number of clients who have applied for this
        loan reflects the leadership that BLOM enjoys.
        It has also played a very positive role for our sister company Arope Insurance.
        With this car loan, BLOM Bank sal has acquired high interest margins.
        We need to mention that the bank experienced good collection experience, leading to
        low default rates.
        This loan has also introduced us to the leading car dealers and automobile agencies
        across the Lebanese territories.

            Why we deserve to win:
        Al Nahar newspaper, in a special issue about Car Loans in May 2010, ranked BLOM
        Bank as the first bank in Lebanon with the highest number of applications between all
        other banks. The difference is a staggering one with more than 12,000 applications
        between BLOM and the bank ranked as second. BLOM Bank represents the highest
        market share in Lebanon, and that is due to providing clients with an excellent
        customer service, along with dealing with an outstanding insurance company, BLOM
        Bank’s sister company, Arope Insurance.
        This product has shown to be very successful, that we have decided to export it to
        Jordan, Syria and Egypt. BLOM branches in these countries have adopted this product
        and are working in the same way in order to capture the market share and promote
        this product as the best in the region.
