ITSS GLOBAL selected by Temenos AGAIN! This time for Implementation project with the Bank of Kigali




Geneva, December 3, 2020 – ITSS Global is pleased to announce that we have been selected by Temenos for the implementation of their Data lake & Analytics solution for the Bank of Kigali.


As the first Temenos Data Lake implementation in the region, the Bank of Kigali is positioned to leverage the benefits of near real time management of large amounts of data to advance their competitive edge in the Rwandan market.


ITSS would like to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation to Temenos and the Bank of Kigali for their trust. We are immeasurably proud of our 19 years of experience with Temenos system integration and we are confident about delivering a successful project for the Bank of Kigali.


About Bank of Kigali

The bank was incorporated in the Republic of Rwanda in 1966 as a joint venture between the Government of Rwanda and Belgolaise, the subsidiary of Fortis Bank. The Government of Rwanda acquired the Belgolaise share in 2007, thus increasing its direct and indirect shareholding in the Bank to 100%. The bank has won several awards throughout the years, including yearly repetitions of Best African Bank of the year, Best East African Bank and Best Bank in Rwanda between 2011 and 2016.

ITSS Global e Inteligo Bank se complace en anunciar que Inteligo Bank salió en vivo con el sistema de Core bancario Temenos Transact R18 en Panamá

Geneva, Septiembre 4, 2020 ITSS Global e Inteligo Bank se complace en anunciar que Inteligo Bank salió en vivo con el sistema de Core bancario Temenos Transact R18 en Panamá. Este proyecto es fundamental para la estrategia de transformación digital de Inteligo para mejorar sus servicios de banca corporativa y privada. El proyecto de actualización del Core lo llevó a cabo el equipo de TI del banco en colaboración con ITSS Global, un partner certificado de Temenos con más de 19 años de experiencia en la integración de software bancario.

La nueva versión de Core bancario de Inteligo Bank permitirá al banco ampliar su capacidad, mejorar procesos y desempeño, además de satisfacer las necesidades, cada vez más exigentes, de sus clientes.

“Ya estamos viendo los beneficios y estamos muy satisfechos con nuestra elección de ITSS Global como integrador de esta actualización. Demostraron su alto nivel de experiencia, acompañándonos en todo el camino, cumpliendo con cada requisito y finalmente saliendo en vivo con éxito, incluso en medio de la pandemia”


dijo Alfredo Castro, Gerente de Tecnología e Información de Inteligo Bank

Durante los últimos meses del proyecto, todo el equipo trabajó de forma remota y en diferentes zonas horarias, llevando a cabo el proyecto con éxito. Este es el primer proyecto en el que ITSS capacitó al equipo de un banco en todo el proceso de actualización desde una ubicación remota. Este enfoque flexible permitió al equipo superar con éxito las circunstancias desafiantes únicas y demostrar aún más la pericia y las capacidades de coordinación precisa de ITSS, así como las excelentes habilidades del banco en la gestión del proyecto.

 

“Estamos orgullosos de ver que después de 14 meses, y en medio de una pandemia global, Inteligo Bank salió en vivo. Una vez más hemos demostrado que ITSS puede superar cualquier desafío que surja en el camino, y gracias a nuestro equipo profesional y dedicado, que trabajó desde varios continentes para que esto fuera posible. Más importante aún, no habríamos podido lograr salir en vivo sin el compromiso y la profesionalidad de Inteligo Bank”


Jayachandran Thiagaraj, Chief Technology Officer of ITSS

Para Inteligo Bank, uno de los principales objetivos de este proyecto era trabajar con un sistema de Core bancario de próxima generación.

 

“Temenos Transact es el Core más completo del mercado, dada la inversión continua que hace Temenos en el producto, queríamos aprovechar la funcionalidad superior en sus nuevas versiones. Sabemos que una actualización del Core bancario es un desafío, pero confiábamos en el partner que elegimos para llevarla a cabo. Nunca hubiéramos imaginado que el proyecto coincidiría con una pandemia global. El equipo de ITSS demostró su capacidad y profesionalismo incluso ante un imprevisto de esta magnitud”


remarcó Luis Miguel Vásquez, CIO de Inteligo Bank

ITSS ha podido acelerar la adopción, por parte de los clientes de Temenos, de la tecnología más avanzada disponible en la industria, y ha estado creciendo rápidamente en la región de América.

 

““¡Estamos muy entusiasmados con la huella que estamos dejando en América Latina! A medida que avanza la era digital, clientes como Inteligo Bank podrán satisfacer las demandas del mercado gracias a su plataforma de última generación. ¡Nos gustaría agradecer a Inteligo por confiar en ITSS en este viaje, y estamos muy orgullosos de haber sido parte de este logro!”

ITSS Global and Inteligo Bank are pleased to announce that Inteligo Bank is live with Temenos Transact R18 Core Banking System in Panama!

 

Geneva, October 12, 2020 – ITSS Global and Inteligo Bank are pleased to announce that Inteligo Bank is live with Temenos Transact R18 Core Banking System in Panama. This project is fundamental to Inteligo’s digital transformation strategy to enhance its corporate and private banking services. The core upgrade project was carried out by the bank´s IT team in collaboration with ITSS Global, a Temenos Certified Partner with over 19 years of experience in banking software integration. The new core banking version at Inteligo Bank will allow the bank to expand their capacity, improve processes and performance, in addition to satisfying the increasingly demanding needs of their clients.

“We are already seeing the benefits and are very satisfied with our choice of ITSS Global as the integrator of this upgrade. They demonstrated their high level of expertise, accompanying us all the way, complying with each requirement, and finally going live successfully even in the middle of a pandemic”


Alfredo Castro, Technology Manager of Inteligo Bank

During the last few months of the project, the entire team worked remotely and in different time zones, successfully seeing the project through. This is the first project ever in which ITSS trained a bank’s team on the entire upgrade process from a remote location. This flexible approach allowed the team to successfully overcome the unique challenging circumstances and further demonstrate ITSS expertise and precise coordination capabilities, as well as the bank’s excellent project managing skills.

“We are proud to see that after 14 months, and in the middle of a global pandemic, Inteligo Bank went live. Once again, we have shown that ITSS can overcome any challenge that comes along the way. Thanks to our professional and dedicated delivery team which worked across multiple continents to make it happen. Most importantly, we could not have achieved a go-live without the commitment and professionalism of Inteligo Bank.”


Jayachandran Thiagaraj, Chief Technology Officer of ITSS

For Inteligo Bank, one of the main goals of this project was to work with a next-generation core banking system.

“Temenos Transact is the most complete core on the market, given the continuous investment Temenos makes in the product we wanted to leverage the superior functionality in its new versions. We know that a core banking upgrade is a challenge, but we were confident of the partner we chose to carry it out. We would have never imagined that the project would coincide with a global pandemic. ITSS team demonstrated their ability and professionalism even when facing an unforeseen event of this magnitude.”


Luis Miguel Vásquez, CIO of Inteligo Bank

ITSS has been able to accelerate Temenos clients’ adoption of the most advanced technology available for the industry, and has been rapidly growing in the Americas.

“We are very excited about the footprint we are leaving in Latin America! As the digital era advances, clients such as Inteligo Bank will be able to meet the demands of the market thanks to its state-of-the-art platform. We would like to thank Inteligo for trusting ITSS in this journey, and we are very proud to have been part of this achievement!”

Sin embargo, gracias al compromiso del equipo de Ripley, nuestros empleados y los consultores de Temenos, pudimos realizar un despliegue 100% remoto. Banco Ripley es especial en todos los aspectos para ITSS en la región y entregar un proyecto exitoso a una organización exigente y al mismo tiempo de reputación es realmente satisfactorio.”
