Our history

The Core Banking solution from TCS BaNCS is a platform agnostic integrated Banking solution that automates all aspects of core banking operations across entities, languages and currencies. A part of the universal banking suite, the core banking solution helps financial institutions introduce new products with ease and efficiently manage changes in existing ones.

The Core Banking solution from TCS BaNCS has been successfully deployed in leading banks across the world with approximately 250 clients in most areas of the world. BaNCS currently processes approximately 20% of global daily transactions.

SOFGEN is closely involved with TCS in the sale, implementation and support of the BaNCS Core system with many of the original BaNCS system’s architects, designers and developers being a part of our practice. With a wealth of experience in the product and its usage, SOFGEN is ideally placed to assist BaNCS Clients in the development, enhancement and use of the system.

In addition to the Core Banking system SOFGEN also represents and assists in the implementation of the rest of the complement of TCS BaNCS products ranging from Universal Banking systems, Capital Markets, Market Infrastructure, Compliance, Corporate Actions, Custody, Wealth Management, Private Banking, Islamic Banking and Life and General Insurance.
