Open source Hyper ledger Fabric has reduced the processing time by 50 percent while maintaining less error and duplications. The local article at Chosun llbo mentions that the company is planning to use DLT in other tasks in the other half of the year but did not list out the details on what it might be.
However, advanced options such as payment settlements and document management option are not yet available right now. More advanced applications, such as the settlement of payments and management of documents, are also not available.
