“Commercial Bank of Ceylon has utilized core banking technology from Fiserv for over two decades, and we knew we could turn to them as a reliable partner to help us enhance the digital banking experience we offer our customers,” said Mr. S Renganathan, Chief Operating Officer, Commercial Bank of Ceylon. “DigitalAccess will allow us to quickly deliver new features and functionality to our increasingly tech-savvy customers, in their respective languages, helping us connect and engage with them more effectively.”
DigitalAccess, which integrates with the bank’s core account processing platform, Signature® from Fiserv, enables digital onboarding to allow customers to open bank accounts and apply for credit cards, loans, and other banking products without having to visit a bank branch. Additional features include personal financial management tools, online mobile phone top-up capabilities, biometric authentication, actionable push notifications, and ATM and branch location searches.

"Commercial Bank of Ceylon is putting technology in place to allow them to update their digital banking services quickly, so they can be responsive to customer needs and stand out in a competitive market.”
