BICICI, former subsidiary of BNP Paribas (Ivory Coast), innovates with Capital Banking Solutions

Paris, France, April 20, 2023 – BICICI embarked on a journey of modernization and digitization by selecting Capital Banking Solutions’ comprehensive and integrated Core Banking suite, CapitalBanker™, for its banking information system.

As a significant contributor to the economic and social development of the Ivory Coast and formerly a subsidiary of BNP Paribas, BICICI has chosen the Core Banking suite from Capital Banking Solutions, a provider and integrator of innovative banking solutions tailored to international banks of all types.

After searching for a solution that is suited to its needs and challenges, and after reflecting on the digitalization of its information system, BICICI has made the strategic decision to deploy the complete suite of solutions from Capital Banking Solutions to support its growth and ensure operational continuity after separating from the BNP Paribas Group.

By leveraging, our support, agility, flexibility, and expertise, BICICI will benefit from a fully configurable, digital, and multi-device suite, providing an omnichannel experience that ensures flawless compliance, through CapitalDigital™ and CapitalCompliance™.

Additionally, BICICI will have a reporting tool through our Data Visualization solution BanksAnalytics to analyze, among other things, the profitability of their clients and employees, etc.

Customers will be provided with access to chatbots via WhatsappBanking. They will also benefit from scoring capabilities and a customizable workflow for different credit types, along with efficient loan processing and execution for both retail and corporate clients through CapitalLending™. Furthermore, BICICI will have the ability to manage issued and received Swift messages through the SwiftManager™ solution.

“We would like to thank the BICICI group for choosing to collaborate with Capital Banking Solutions and for placing their trust in our teams and our comprehensive solutions to address their challenges and meet their needs. We are proud and excited to deploy our core banking system to ensure a seamless digitization of their information system to exceed customer expectations,” stated Mr. Alain Klat, Head of Sales and Marketing Worldwide.
