“The Core Banking System upgrade will enable the bank to further increase its operational efficiencies and improve its compliance and risk management functionalities. It will also provide the Bank an advanced banking platform to position itself for enhanced digital banking services for the customers,” added Musau.

The new outfit is expected to offer enhanced performance, flexibility and real-time interfaces.

“FusionBanking Essence also offers an Islamic Banking module that is seamlessly integrated to the core banking system while at the same time adhering to Shariah compliant practices.” Musau concluded.
