Its principal shareholder was the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development and other share holders included the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Finance Corporation, Deutsche Entwicklungsgesellschaft and the Kyrgyz Government.In 2006 KICB decided to transform itself in to a full service commercial bank and launched retail banking operations. To increase efficiency it wanted to consolidate its retail and corporate core banking infrastructure. This meant that it had to replace its existing core banking implementation that was too inflexible to cope.KICB chose FLEXCUBE because of the superiority of its support for business processes and its technology. FLEXCUBE enabled the development of new financial products and services without extensive investment in software development. The implementation was completed in six months.
"The power of our development approach is that we constantly add new functionality to cope with customer challenges. We are happy that KICB has gone live with FLEXCUBE and look forward to working as partners with them," says S.Sundararajan, Senior Vice-President, Customer Fulfillment, Banking Products, i-flex solutions.
"The challenges that banks face are similar all over the world. Banks need to increase customer intimacy by learning from customer interactions and improving business processes. We must be able to differentiate ourselves and that is possible only with a core banking solution that allows new product and services to be introduced swiftly. FLEXCUBE is designed to help banks respond to these business imperatives and that is why it is such an asset," says Bektur Aliev, chief operating officer of Kyrgyz Investment & Credit Bank.
