CR2 awarded for outstanding achievement in banking industry

CR2 has won the award of ‘Excellence in Channel Banking Software Solutions’ at the Nigeria edition of New Age Banking Summit 2018.

Now in its eighth year, the annual summit, organised by UMS Conferences, and held in Lagos, is a distinguished knowledge-sharing forum of carefully selected senior banking and technology experts who provide insights into the key trends and challenges of banking in the digital era.

The announcement of CR2’s New Age Banking Award came at the end of the first day of the two-day conference, which is widely considered as one of the most prestigious occasions on Africa’s fintech calendar.

CR2, a leading global banking software company, has developed a strong market presence across Africa, and today enjoys significant growth in Nigeria, where two of the country’s biggest banks, (Diamond Bank and Access Bank) serve as its customers. Founded in 1997, the Irish vendor has earned a respected reputation as an enabler of digital transformation through its integrated self-service ATM, internet and mobile platform, BankWorld.

Fintan Byrne, Chief Executive Officer of CR2, who accepted the award on behalf of the company, said, “We are thrilled to receive this recognition. Our footprint across the African continent continues to grow significantly, largely due to our award-winning technology, but also our knowledge and expertise of the shifting market dynamics in each local African country”.

With headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, CR2 has more than 100 retail banking customers in over 60 countries. CR2 supports its regional customers with a strong local presence in Nigeria, complemented by partners Global Info Swift Technologies Limited (GIS).
