Continuing the development, Citadele Bank will implement a major IT system upgrade by switching to a new T24 bank management software platform at the end of this year.
“In order to ensure compliance of the bank’s information systems with its business objectives, we’ve planned significant investment in the bank’s information systems. A switchover of the bank operations management processes to the new T24 system version, one of the most advanced bank management software platforms in the world, will take place at the end of this year,” says Kaspars Cikmačs, member of the Board of Citadele Bank.
He emphasizes that “the transition to this system is a step forward in the process of implementation and development of the business strategy and further development of Citadele Bank. Once implemented, this system will serve as the basis for further IT improvements to help the bank improve customer service while maintaining it at the highest level, and will also enable the bank to develop new banking products relevant to its clients in a faster and more convenient way.”
With the introduction of the new T24 system, Citadele Bank will significantly increase its competitiveness on the market. The T24 system is provided by Swiss company Temenos, one of the largest companies in this field on a global scale. The company has been developing new versions of the software on a regular basis, which include innovations demanded by banks, and it also invests considerable resources in market research for the timely identification of new trends in the global financial industry.
