Amman - Jordan: International Computer Systems (London) Ltd. - ICS with the coordination of Hewlett-Packard - Middle East - HP and partner company Computer and Communications Systems Ltd – CCS of Jordan hosted an International High Technology Seminar for the Financial Institutions Sector, dedicated to implementing efficient financial and Banking Solutions in order to achieve highly developed Banking services.
The seminar was held at the Kempinski Hotel, where the focus was on the technologies most keenly in demand, supporting a new generation of Banking services and products – Investment Modules, Asset Management, e-Brokerage, e-Banking, Business Process Management and Budgeting & Planning.
Mr. Wail Malkawi, Vice President of Business Development at ICS (London) Ltd., opened the seminar by a welcoming speech to Hewlett-Packard HP and started his presentation explaining the relationship between ICS & CCS, listing their products & services, accentuating business challenges, trends & targets. He also mentioned that the market is moving fast and today’s financial institutions are focusing on planning, marketing & branch delivery channel, whereas more traditional IT is facing difficulties responding to financial & management needs.
Mr. Wail Malkawi stated:

“The ICS solution utilizes the world’s leading technologies to deliver extraordinary value, through unifying financial charts of account, balance sheets, chain management and redefining internal banking processes with multi-lingual features & smooth data transfer from one module to another”.
This was an important point for the organizers.

“This software is perfect for leading Banks, such as our established customers, because they are constantly evolving their solutions to their own clients needs, and they always want to offer the services most in demand. Time is critical for them.” explained Mr. Fayez Samara, Director at ICS London. 

“Our BANKS solutions allow our Banks to powerfully and quickly deliver the world’s leading solutions to their clients – whatever’s most in demand can be delivered within weeks using our BANKS software. It’s an unbeatable partnership of technology with our business knowledge, and that is why the BANKS solution is the best in its class.”
