Bermuda Commercial Bank (BCB), a corporate and private wealth bank, has licensed Misys BankFusion Universal Banking. The new core banking solution will ensure that the services the bank provides to its customers are underpinned by the latest technology.
BCB offers a range of products and services to both personal and corporate clients across the world. Having benefited from the Misys Bankmaster system for several years, BCB management decided to invest in the latest solution from Misys in order to be more responsive to clients and deliver new products to the market more quickly. Misys BankFusion Universal Banking provides a migration path from Bankmaster, which minimises the risk of the upgrade to the bank.
Michael Cranfield, chief information officer (CIO) of BCB, said: “We have always prided ourselves as being a leader both in terms of the variety of products we offer as well as the quality of these products. It is vital that we continually innovate and improve the way in which we operate to ensure that we meet the needs of our clients. We wanted to invest in a world-class system that enabled high quality service and BankFusion Universal Banking gives us the platform on which to grow our business and keep BCB at the forefront of technology.”
