As a leading provider for consumer financial services, EASY BUY offers two types of consumer financial products: revolving loan and installment loan. The company’s revolving loan service grants unsecured loans to customers who need cash for their personal expenses.

The amount repaid will become a revolving credit available for the next withdrawal. Customers can use the service through Umay+ and counter services available across nearly 100 channels nationwide. EASY BUY’s “Installment Loan” allows customers to buy a variety of items by paying the vendor directly, and then allowing the customer to repay the loan in installments (plus interest) until the loan is fully paid in accordance with the loan agreement. Customers can use EASY BUY’s ‘Installment Loan’ service through over 126 vendors nationwide.

EASY BUY’s 2,500+ employees service over two million customers nationwide through EASY BUY service centers and 6 partner banks. “Apart from Umay+ branch, we have three data centers that synchronize data in real time, so our customers can instantly and conveniently access financial services with confidence in our information management,” said Mr. Chatchai Lertbuntanawong, Director & Executive Officer of EASY BUY. “We mainly focus on satisfying customers with convenient, easy-to-access and trustworthy services. This is why IT infrastructure is a key to our business success.”

We believe that the Nutanix infrastructure can effectively support our business growth for the long term as it helps reduce workloads for our IT team. Thanks to this solution, we can cut operating costs up to Bt10 million. Additionally, our employees can work from anywhere at any time and deliver prompt services to customers without interruption. Customers can be assured that we will always stand by their side when needed,” Chatchai added.
