IBS Intelligence announces its Annual Sales League Table 2021 results

Covid-19 accelerated digitisation among banks with growing momentum in the adoption of digital banking solutions, that will only build further in the years to come.

London, 4 June 2021 – IBS Intelligence (IBSI) today is pleased to announce the publication of its eagerly awaited iconic Annual IBSI Sales League Table (SLT) 2021. With a 19-year track record, the IBSI SLT showcases the sales performance of banking technology suppliers, objectively ranking products across 17 categories with 3 new categories launched this edition.

The IBSI SLT 2021 includes systems purchases made by over 1000+ banks across 180+ products from 60 suppliers across the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, APAC and ASEAN. The number of deals evaluated this year was 2000+, reported across 150 countries globally.

This year, IBSI also recognises select suppliers who have not made it to the SLT Leadership Club but have demonstrated strong performance, in the SLT Industry Leader Special Awards across 4 categories: Fraud Management, Credit Scoring, Card Management & e-Wallets, and Market Risk. The new categories that have been introduced this year, includes Conversational Banking, Data Warehouse & Business Intelligence and InsurTech.

The IBSI LeaderBoard is another special feature introduced this year to recognize the journey of players in the last 5 years in each of the 8 essential categories. The new customer wins of the players have been cumulatively benchmarked against their current year performance for each broad category of Universal Banking, Retail Banking, Wholesale Banking, Private Banking & Wealth Management, Lending, Digital Banking & Channels, Payments, and Risk & Compliance.

Robin Amlôt, Managing Editor of IBS Intelligence, said: “2020 was a year like no other. Decision-makers previously sitting on the fence about digitisation were forced by the pandemic and related travel restrictions to explore their options afresh, with banks replacing existing physical verification and other related practices. Institutions already transitioning from legacy systems saw the process further accelerated by Covid-19. At the same time, solutions vendors found innovative, creative ways to satisfy spiking demand for their products. Our analysis this year shows a 20% year-on-year increase in the number of qualified deals.”
