8 February 2007

Misys Banking Systems customers gather across the globe to hear latest in structured products, derivatives, trade services, corporate banking, retail banking and compliance

Misys Banking Systems, a global leader in banking software and solutions, has completed its most popular ever round of international customer conferences taking place across Asia-Pacific, EMEA and the USA. Over 700 delegates from around the world attended briefing and networking events held in Hong Kong, Bali, Macau, Singapore, London and Miami. They were given the opportunity of providing input into the strategic direction of Misys products, sharing experiences with peers and gaining insight into changes in industry practice and regulation.

“Our conferences are an excellent opportunity for our clients, many of them new to Misys this year, to get together and learn more, both about our strategic direction and from their fellow professionals in the industry,” commented Tim Goodhind, Director of Business Development, Treasury & Capital Markets, Misys Banking Systems. “We saw strong interest in the latest innovative developments in Misys Opics Plus and Misys Summit, as well as overwhelming support from delegates to extend our global user groups into regional forums. We are delighted that these conferences have succeeded in developing and strengthening our relationships with our international client base.”

At the two Misys Banking Systems conferences held in Hong Kong and Singapore at the end of January 2006, much of the discussions were around the trends in the core banking market and how Misys is helping its hundreds of customers in the region to use technology strategically. Dermot Briody, Head of Core Banking Sales for Asia, Misys Banking Systems, states, “We have had great success in equipping our Asian customers with the right solutions to expand their product portfolios, increase customer reach, reduce costs, manage risk and respond to compliance demands. We were able to bring these customers up to date with the developments of our banking solutions in all of these key areas including our Midas, Equation and Trade Services family of products. It was pleasing to see so many of our customers at the events, sharing their views with us and listening to our opinions on how the market is developing and how we are able to better partner with them in capitalising on the changes.”
