Intellect Global Consumer Banking (iGCB), the retail banking arm of Intellect, retained its #1 Global Leadership position in retail banking for the second time in a row. iGCB offers an end-to-end Contextual Banking suite for retail banking across Core, Lending, Cards, Wealth and Central Banking. iGCB breaks the one-shoe-fits-all paradigm and brings flexibility to how banks drive digital transformation. Whether the strategy is channel-led, product-led, middleware-led or even segment-led (think challenger banks), iGCB can make it happen in a ‘Progile’ – progressive + agile – manner. This unique infusion of integrated functionality and agility is made possible by our microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native architecture with powerful Olive Fabric capabilities.

iGTB, the world’s first complete Global Transaction Banking arm of Intellect, has been ranked #1 as the best-selling wholesale banking – transaction banking system and joins the leadership club, validating its revolutionary #ContextualBanking innovation and a rich suite of transaction banking products. With 23% of the world’s MNC cross-border sweeps and over 50% of IMEA corporate collections going through iGTB systems, already proven capable of processing over one million domestic/international payments per hour in live use, this ranking underlines why so many of the world’s best corporate banks, bank on iGTB.

Intellect was also ranked in the top three best-selling solutions for Digital Banking and Channels, and also the top three best-selling solutions for Lending Systems.

Commenting on the ranking, Arun Jain, Chairman and Managing Director, Intellect Design Arena Limited said, “This is a remarkable validation of Intellect’s Best-in-Class Integrated Digital Banking Platform with Front to Back Capabilities across Retail and Corporate segments by IBS in the Sales League Table. The commendation also validates our microservices-based, API-first and cloud-ready architecture. Even our modular solutions across lending and channels are in the top 3, thanks to their comprehensive functionality and independent utility. This vindicates our pioneering use of #ContextualBanking based on Design Thinking principles – the concept that your banking systems should understand – even anticipate – what the client is trying to do. We are humbled by the recognition and thank our clients for entrusting the very core of their business functionality with us.”
