How ebankIT Omnichannel Digital Platform adapted itself to Islamic Banking

As an international digital banking platform provider with strong omnichannel capabilities, ebankIT has clients worldwide, from Canada to Switzerland, from the United Kingdom to South Africa, and now in the Middle East too.

Islamic Banking follows the directives of Sharia Law that govern commercial transactions, from lending and borrowing to investing. The transactional core banking solutions primarily manage these principles. However, as a provider of an omnichannel digital banking platform, ebankIT developed a suitable solution to meet all the Islamic Banking client’s requirements and expectations.

A best-in-class user experience for all left-to-right or right-to-left readers.

ebankIT omnichannel platform allows the installation of multiple interface languages on a single solution. For the Islamic market, ebankIT went further and created a flexible system, enabling it to smoothly switch from English to the Arabic alphabet, moving from left-to-right to right-to-left script, and even reconfiguring the look and feel for an immersive user experience.

In a short period of 9 months, ebankIT managed to offer a complete array of new features, developed from the very beginning to comply with all the Shariah rules:
