KARACHI: Oman Housing Bank has selected Temenos to modernise its core banking capabilities in the cloud. With Temenos, OHB will be able to operate more efficiently, streamline processes and develop innovative new products faster on a highly scalable, cloud-native platform.

The solution will be implemented by Temenos certified partner Systems Ltd using the Oman Country Model Bank, which will allow OHB to leverage pre-configured banking capabilities tailored to the local market that will enable faster, more cost-effective implementation.

The bank will also benefit from Temenos’ continued investment in its single code base and experience of working with 3000 banks across 150 countries.
