Misys, the leading financial software company, has signed an agreement with ECB, a Zimbabwe-based application software and services provider, to join the Misys InFusion partner programme. Working with banks and government institutions in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Angola, Botswana, Zambia and other African countries, ECB provides expertise in application development, managed services, strategic sourcing, training and consulting, designed to bring efficiency and automation to client companies.
The key area of joint focus will be the promotion of the Misys FusionBanking portfolio, including core banking systems, digital channels and lending. ECB has already worked with Misys on a number of projects across southern Africa over the last twelve years in areas such as project management, core banking system implementation and systems integration. ECB recently hosted a digital channels solution for banks in the region which provided network-independent applications for online and mobile banking, as well as access to social media channels.
ECB has its own web-based credit-scoring solution, which automates loan origination and credit rating functions for personal or corporate loan applications, including loan recording, verification and scoring through to comprehensive reporting and system administration.
Lucky Chitima, ECB CEO, commented: “We are delighted to work alongside Misys in the region. The focus on core banking is an excellent fit and our joint propositions in this area, especially around digital channels, have proved to be a compelling solution for the African banking community. In the future, the channel will be the bank.”
“ECB is a proven partner,” remarked Brian Gibson, VP Partners & Ecosystem, “and their ability to tailor our core banking portfolio to the African market is a major factor.
