Fina Bank Rwanda implements Neptune's banking system
Fina first implemented UK-based Neptune's platform in 1995
Neptune Software has announced that Fina Bank Rwanda has gone live with its banking system in just four months.
According to the company, Fina Bank's relationship with the company started back in 1995 when Neptune's core banking system was implemented at Fina Bank, Kenya. After the acquisition of a bank in Rwanda formerly known as Bacar four years ago, the board made the decision to roll out Neptune's banking platform as a group service. The bank was initially running on Microbanker and had major issues with reporting and system interface.
Mr Steve Caley, managing director of Fina Bank, said: "The bank is planning to open more branches within the next few months and Neptune's products will provide a solid foundation for the expansion with branches networked on a single back office system."
Priscillah Kivihya, senior consultant of Neptune Software, said: "The bank's management, super users and the project team efforts were exceptional and highly commendable to achieving today's targets."
Earlier in October, Neptune's Rubikon banking system was selected by Victoria Commercial Bank, Kenya to extend its services through delivery channels such as internet and mobile banking.
