Message from the CEO

  • Jun 26, 2019
Dear valued customers and partners,

Half of 2019 is already behind us. It has been full of exciting news that we continue to share with you with a sole goal – to inspire innovation and help you drive your business forward.

Digital technologies are constantly impacting the way we live and interact and this has become the reality in the financial sector. Instant and personalized financial services through any touch point are already a must for the customer in this highly competitive market. How can financial providers win today’s customer-driven, open market? Read more from the article here.

A main part of this process is related to better understanding customer needs, drawing up business cases for digitization and preparing financial models for building up self-sustaining services. Realizing the need of being not only a vendor but a trusted adviser to financial institutions, we have created SG Consult, a unit of Software Group that provides strategic consulting services for the financial services industry in the digital age. The main goal of the department led by Tara Lacey is to drive innovation together with the clients and support them in their journey to create viable and scalable digital ecosystems.

Drawing on our expertise gained over 10 years as one of the first global technology companies supporting digital finance, we know that no one can depict the road to success in straight lines. But providing the highest-end technology on the market combined with the best executive team in place is surely a sign of driving the process in the right direction. Hence, I am extremely glad to announce that we have appointed Mr. Connor Hanan to the role of Chief Executive Officer of Software Group Africa. He will oversee the operations and sales in the region to continue our sustainable growth over the coming years.

Read more of our handpicked news including Software Group’s partnership with Finastra and Bluecode, our work with GSMA, as well as the new project we started with mPex International to advance financial inclusion in Uganda’s agricultural sector. Last but not least, Software Group was recognized as one of the most innovative tech companies in Europe by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and ranked in the “50 most promising Fintech solution providers for 2019” by CIO Review.

All these recognitions wouldn’t be possible without you – our most valued customers and partners.

Thank you for being with us and see you in the next issue of SG Insider!

 

Sincerely yours,
Kalin Radev
