Maveric Systems, the global banking technology transformation specialist in partnership with Allica Bank, has been named winner of IBSI Global FinTech Innovation Awards 2020, for the “Best Quality Assurance and Quality Engineering execution” engagement, as most impactful project.
With a strategic vision towards servicing established small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in the UK, Allica bank embarked on an ambitious journey for their business launch. Maveric was selected to lead the quality engineering (QE) program to “Build-out-of-the-bank” after a thorough evaluation among various IT players. Maveric’s successful track record and experience in anchoring similar “Build-the-bank” programmes in the UK, also favored the selection.
The QE transformation exercise surrounded Allica’s market launch readiness which included their focused banking products, core banking application, treasury system, regulatory reporting, GL reconciliation, payments, digital platforms (mobile and web), API’s, MI reporting and more. Maveric’s continuous quality engineering approaches were introduced through shift-left automation strategies thus enabling faster time-to-market and early defect prevention.
Commenting on the recognition, Simon Bateman CIO of Allica Bank said “Maveric collaborated closely with Allica Bank to help us build a new bank designed specifically to serve the needs of SMEs in the UK. Their dependable and high-energy team provided top-level quality engineering expertise and helped us build the right test capabilities for the bank.”
Ranga Reddy, CEO of Maveric Systems said “Build the Bank program was key to Allica bank’s business launch in UK and we thank them for giving us the opportunity to be their QE transformation partner. The consistent support extended by the entire team at Allica helped us achieve the engagement outcome within the required timelines. This award is a true testimony of our ability to accelerate business transformation for our customers by bringing together comprehensive competencies, contextualized solutions and a team solely committed to customer success”
Thanks to the IBSI team, who considered Allica Bank-Maveric engagement as the most impactful project in the best quality assurance and quality engineering category.
