Misys wins Best of Show at Finovate Europe

First joint success following Misys acquisition of IND Group earlier this week

Misys, the leading provider of banking software solutions, has been voted 'Best of Show' winner at Finovate Europe, the financial banking technology conference, which took place in London this week. Finovate focuses exclusively on showcasing the best and most innovative new financial technologies.

Misys demonstrated its new lifestyle-friendly banking app which crosses the generational divide and brings a unique digital banking experience to the masses. Misys was chosen as a Best of Show winner by approximately 1,000 delegates - including representatives of many of Europe's leading banks - after 67 companies presented their newest innovations on stage in seven-minute live demos.

Presenting at the conference for Misys were József Nyíri, Director of Innovation, Digital Channels and Tamás Grünzweig, Head of Digital Channel Labs.

József Nyíri commented: "To meet the needs of today's digital population, Misys delivers a best-in-class banking app with innovation at its heart. Mobile banking has never been so comfortable and easy, yet secure. We built the app to offer more than just transactional banking - it's based on customers' life situations so that banks can deliver personal, targeted offers, turn data into relevant visual information, and provide a user experience which turns mobile banking into a primary engagement and sales channel."

Nadeem Syed, CEO of Misys, added: "We're thrilled that within days of acquiring IND Group and bringing the digital channels business within the Misys family, that we have received such an accolade. It gives a powerful endorsement to a fantastic solution and an incredibly innovative team."
