IMTF New Cloud Offering

IMTF’s customers now have the option to access most of IMTF’s solutions via the Cloud rather than from an in-house installation. IMTF offers cloud-based services through a number of partners, located initially in Switzerland and Singapore. Other countries are in the pipeline.

Banking in the Cloud is gaining traction in many countries and becoming more acceptable to regulatory authorities. Nevertheless, Banks still need to know where their (client) data is stored: this is why we offer our cloud banking solutions always in a private cloud. This ensures high-level data protection and high system availability.

The following applications are available either as “Software as a Service” (SaaS) cloud-based license or as traditional on-site license.

The first customers in Switzerland are about to go live.
