Fidelity Bank Ghana and Newgen Software Crowned Best Self-Service Banking Technology Implementation in Africa

Fidelity Bank Ghana Limited and Newgen Software have been recognized for “Best Self-Service Banking Technology Implementation in Africa” at The Asian Banker Middle East and Africa Awards, 2020. The Bank is leveraging Newgen’s solution for the virtual account opening to enable omnichannel client onboarding.

“Fidelity Bank has long-term strategic plans to transform into a digital bank and tap into the tech-savvy millennial market segment, among others, with the help of a unified onboarding platform. Newgen’s online self-service account opening solution is very easy to use and it has enabled us to expand our reach, digitally, beyond our banking halls,” stressed Edward Opare-Donkor, Deputy Managing Director (Operations and Support Functions) at Fidelity Bank.

“Our post-implementation assessment indicates that we were able to reach 50% more customers, we reduced turnaround time from 4 days to as low as 15 minutes and we reduced customer waiting time by 75%,” he further continued.

“This award is a testament to Newgen’s consistent efforts to provide the best-in-class banking solutions to our customers. We understand Fidelity Bank’s vision and will continue to help them achieve their business goals through our technical expertise and culture of innovation,” said Diwakar Nigam, MD, and Chairman, Newgen Software.
