Amsterdam Trade Bank (ATB), a fully-owned subsidiary of Alfa Bank, has gone live with Misys BankFusion Equation, the latest version of the Misys core banking system. The bank upgraded to the BankFusion-based solution so that it could bring new products and services to market more rapidly and meet its business expansion goals.
ATB implemented the system in less than five months. The new version has been re-architected into an service oriented architecture (SOA) environment based on Misys’ BankFusion platform. The bank now has better security and risk management capabilities and the flexibility to scale the business at the pace it requires.
“BankFusion Equation is a truly world-class solution that will bring us tangible benefits in the way we run our business and bring new products to market,” said Henny te Beest, chief financial officer (CFO) and managing director, ATB. “We have had a very successful partnership with Misys and this latest solution supports the future business of the bank. It gives us additional functionality for our lending requirements, as well as the flexibility to change our processes quickly and to respond to market demands more effectively.”
