Intellect Design Arena Limited, a Specialist in applying true Digital Technologies across Banking & Insurance, won the inaugural and exclusive “Technology Provider of The Year” Award, instituted by Central Banking at a formal ceremony held in London. In a competitive category assessed by a panel with former senior central bankers from around the world, Intellect’s Quantum Central Banking Solution (QCBS), successfully deployed across a diverse range of central banks, stood out as a clear differentiator.
Commenting on the award, Jaideep Billa, CEO, iGCB, Intellect Design Arena Limited, said “Central banks face the difficult task of maintaining stability in a fast-changing and turbulent economic environment, and QCBS enables them to implement their policies with greater speed and accuracy thanks to full automation, real-time visibility, automatic surplus and deficit management, and removal of manual reconciliation. Intellect QCBS – a robust and innovative solution, has proven and flexible business components under a single high-performance architecture that supports central banks with risk-free progressive modernisation. This award reinforces our commitment to transform and empower financial institutions at different stages of technology deployment.”
Intellect has worked with central banks in countries as diverse as Ethiopia, the Seychelles, and most recently, Sweden. Intellect won a competitive tender process in 2014 to upgrade the Sveriges Riksbank’s collateral management system. QCBS deploys a formidable array of advanced technology frameworks including Extreme Account Posting (XAP), Run Time Re Use (RTRU), and Look Ahead Processing (LAP) technologies.
Speaking at the award presentation held in London, Central Banking’s editor, Christopher Jeffery, said “Intellect’s value has been clearly demonstrated by their ongoing work with Sveriges Riksbank (the world’s oldest central bank) and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in particular. Intellect’s technology had a direct impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of the RBI’s activities”.
Representatives from Intellect were present at the ceremony, alongside with audience from Central Banks around the globe.
