ATB is a mid-sized universal bank serving retail, SME, and corporate customers with a staff of 1300 and 134 branches across the country. On Temenos’s open platform, it aims to differentiate itself in the market as a customer-centric bank through technology and innovation. Leveraging the platform’s core and digital banking capabilities to power new growth opportunities, drive efficiencies at scale, and deliver seamless customer experiences.
The implementation partner, Information Technology Solutions and Services (ITSS), completed the project’s first phase. It included Temenos Banking Capabilities for accounts, lending, deposits, and financial crime mitigation and migrating retail and corporate accounts to the Temenos platform.
Ultimately, the front-to-back banking capabilities of Temeno’s open platform will underpin the bank’s entire operations. The second phase of the implementation includes Temenos Banking Capabilities and pre-composed Banking Services for Digital Banking, Payments, and Enterprise Risk Management.
