Alfa-Bank’s New Processing Centre Runs on OpenWay’s WAY4 Platform
Alfa-Bank Belarus, part of the Alfa-Bank Group valued at $44 billion in total assets, has completed its migration to the WAY4 platform by OpenWay, a top-ranked digital payment software provider. Well-known in Eastern Europe for its digital banking approach, Alfa-Bank migrated its payment cards and online services to an on-premise WAY4 solution to cut operational expenses and time-to-market, and promote innovation.
"OpenWay’s flexible approach to the project implementation strengthened the basis of our future partnership in developing new digital banking products,” - says Rafal Juszczak, CEO at Alfa-Bank Belarus.
One of the specific project requirements was to transmit progress of the migration in real time. Over 50,000 bank clients could monitor every step of the migration process, which significantly reduced in-bound calls to the customer support center and online chat messages.
Processing in-house enables Alfa-Bank to introduce new banking products and services while controlling costs.
“The success of the project was achieved through collaboration and a joint Alfa-Bank and OpenWay team sharing the same vision. Another key to success was the project management excellence that aligned with the project’s goals” - notes Dmitry Dovgal, Deputy Director of Business Development at OpenWay.
