Have you checked the package NumberTheory`FactorIntegerECM? See

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/Add-onsLinks/StandardPackages/NumberTheory/FactorIntegerECM.html

In[1]:=
a1 = 2^4 + 7^24*719^2;
a2 = 2^20*29^2 + 13^23;
a3 = 13^24 + 5^37*41;

In[4]:=
Needs["NumberTheory`FactorIntegerECM`"]

In[5]:=
FactorIntegerECM[a1]

Out[5]=
94793

(Note that FactorIntegerECM returns one factor at the time.)

Jean-Marc
