3rd August, 2017

KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (“Bank Islam”) yesterday announced a strategic collaboration with Cognizant, a leading global business and technology consulting firm, to lay the foundation of digital banking platform across the Bank’s entire network.

The agreement was signed by Encik Khairul Kamarudin, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Islam, and Encik Effendi Azmi Hashim, Malaysia Business Leader of Cognizant, at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

Speaking at the signing Khairul said: “Bank Islam will continue applying digital technology to our products and services, bringing greater accessibility to our customers, as well as simplifying and improving their banking experience with us.

“Bank Islam has always strived to design innovative solutions to transform our customers’ experience of banking.

“By partnering with Cognizant to build a digital bank, the Bank is taking a big leap into the future to deliver cutting edge innovative solutions to SMEs and customers across country, and integrate them seamlessly into the developing digital economy in Malaysia.”

He added: “Digitalisation will help Bank Islam accelerate SME banking by providing business solutions for their operational as well as expansion needs. It will enable the Bank to rapidly tap the rural, underserved segments and boost financial inclusion by overcoming cost and physical barriers.

Bank Islam will be able to combine its energy, continuous innovation and imagination of Fintech start-ups with its solid balance sheet, trust, customer service and banking expertise.

By capitalising on digital technologies, Bank Islam will be able to transform Islamic banking as envisioned by Bank Negara Malaysia.
