Ameriabank and CR2 sign an agreement for the introduction of a new omnichannel banking platform

CR2 is a leading software company specialised in innovative self-service and remote banking solutions. The company has more than 100 customers in over 60 countries worldwide, including Standard Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and other leading financial institutions.

BankWorld will enable Ameriabank to offer cutting-edge banking solutions available 24/7 via the self-service channels including the ATM and Kiosk network as well as the Internet and Mobile Banking channels.

This will be a new world in the Armenian financial market as all remote banking channels will be unified in a single platform providing clients with maximum convenience and standardising access to all services via any remote banking channel.

The system has a number of new-to-Armenian banking self-service banking features. The system particularly enables to:

  • automatically match the self-service banking device/remote channels and the product offered to  the right client segment, ensuring an individual and relevant service;
  • transform ATMs into personalised service points whereby  clients can easily manage all of their bank accounts, submit various orders and application forms to the bank as well as execute a number of transactions which were previously restricted to the Internet Banking, in addition to being targeted with personalised offers relevant to the customer’s profile;
  • improve the capabilities of the Internet and Mobile Banking channels both for individuals and legal entities, ensuring a wider range of transactions to be deployed at convenience  and a modern segment-specific interface;
  • perform person-to-person (P2P) payments via the Internet and Mobile Banking channels as well as other self-service touch points using the recipient’s phone number or other authentication data. Customers will be able to  withdraw the received amount from Ameriabank’s ATMs without having to use any payment cards.   

The adoption of the BankWorld omnichannel banking platform will be implemented progressively over the next year.

Kieran Kilcullen, Member of the Executive Board, Chief Commercial Officer, CR2: “I am delighted to welcome Ameriabank as our first customer in Armenia. Today’s signing, which sees CR2 delivering our unique Self-Service platform offering to Ameriabank including ATM – Internet Banking – Mobile banking and Kiosk solutions, will allow the bank to create a seamless user experience across all of their self-service channels and we have no doubt that it will help the bank comfort its leading position in the market.
