Hadhramout Commercial Bank Selects ICS BANKS Universal from ICSFS to Start its Operations in Yemen

Hadhramout, Yemen:

Hadhramout Commercial Bank (HCB), a newly-established bank in the Republic of Yemen, has selected ICS BANKS Universal Banking software solution from ICS Financial Systems (ICSFS), the global software and services provider for banks and financial institutions.

Hadhramout Commercial Bank (HCB) is the first universal bank to open its headquarters in Hadhramout. The bank will provide commercial, retail, investment, corporate, digital, and private banking products and services through ICS BANKS Universal banking’s holistic software suite. ICSFS will enable the bank to provide the most innovative digital products and services to its customers, to support the bank’s mission in becoming a leading universal banking institution in Yemen. Hadhramout Commercial Bank will be utilising ICSFS’ Digital Banking excellence and open banking architecture.

As a new bank in the Yemeni market, we believe that the success will never be achieved without strong partnerships. Our new partnership with ICSFS will lead to corporate sustainability and maintain our business growth and economic value in the future. Considering the special circumstances in our region and especially in Yemen, the selection criteria elements for the core-banking software were very critical. Fortunately, ICSFS’ decent reputation and wide experience in Yemen, and other similar markets for both; conventional and Islamic banking, had made the technical selection decision relatively easy for HCB’s management, and outweighed ICSFS as a strategic partner for our new business.
