DUBAI, UAE, March 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Misys BankFusion Digital Channels enables banks to stay ahead of competitors

by improving products and services across all channels

At the ‘Misys MENA Market Forum 2013
[http://www.misys.com/events/middle-east-north-africa-market-forum-2013.aspx ]‘ today Misys
is announcing its new innovative range of online and mobile banking products, Misys
BankFusion Digital Channels, which significantly enhances the way banks provide products
and services via the Internet or mobile devices.

Misys BankFusion Digital Channels comprises a range of proven and mature modules
covering online banking, mobile banking, personal financial management and Internet
brokerage, which enable banks to extend their services and add more value to their
customers. The innovative solution enables banks to keep up to date with the changing
needs of consumers. It allows banks to provide a better digital service all the time and
allows them to optimise their costs, as customers migrate from transacting in branches to
banking via digital channels.

“Today’s retail banking customers want to take control of their money,” states Alex
Bray, Retail Channel Manager at Misys. “People need to have access to banking services on
the go, at any time of day, wherever they are. They demand solutions that make it simpler
to pay bills or transfer funds and allow them to manage their money so they can plan
better for the future and save more. We continually ensure we are providing our customers
with the best products and support so they can meet their customers’ increasing appetite
for online banking services and we’re delighted to be able to launch Misys BankFusion
Digital Channels to meet this need.”

The new digital channels offering from Misys helps banks change and manage their
channel strategies more effectively and more rapidly. Banks will now be able to ward off
the threat of competitors and cope with the increasing pressures from more sophisticated
consumers wanting to use the latest technology. Customers are more likely to have mobile
devices and access to the Internet and Wifi and mobile web is more available than ever,
making it vital to put digital at the heart of a multi-channel strategy.

Alex Bray adds, “Customers want to be offered relevant products that they can buy with
the minimum amount of effort. They want seamless integration between online devices and
channels and innovative propositions that have a fresh, clear design, incorporating
innovative concepts such as gamification and the best use of social media.”

BankFusion Digital Channels will be available pre-integrated within Misys BankFusion
Universal Banking, Equation, and Midas applications and as a standalone offering to legacy
banking systems on the market.
