Delta Informatique, a major player in strategic banking software, has just been selected by Crédit Libanais for the supply and implementation of a banking software suite in its new Senegalese subsidiary, Crédit International.
Senegal is the first African country where the Lebanese banking group has decided to implant itself. The group then plans to expand into other countries in the UEMOA zone, and very probably in other regions in Africa.
Delta has committed itself to the Credit International to offering a "key in hand" solution based on a Banking Model in order to allow the opening of the Senegalese subsidiary before April 2010. This implementation will take place in two phases. The first phase will include the totality of core banking modules (Branch System, Commitments and Trade Finance). The second phase will cover other modules, particularly Multi-Channel and the CRM Portal. It is during this phase that the skills transfer to the CI project team will take place in order for it to take the banking information system in hand.
With this new signing, Delta Informatique has reinforced its position in Africa, and probably in other countries, as the Lebanese banking group seems to be looking to further develop outside of Lebanon.
