Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, announced that Länsförsäkringar Bank has successfully deployed TCS BaNCS for Core Banking to power the next leg of their digital transformation journey.

To meet the rising expectations of Nordic consumers, create competitive differentiation, and participate in new business opportunities enabled by digital technologies, Länsförsäkringar Bank sought to replace its legacy systems with a modern banking and payments solution. It selected TCS BaNCS after a detailed evaluation, for its ability to support the bank’s digital ambitions and future growth.

TCS BaNCS was successfully deployed in one of the fastest implementations of its kind in the Swedish market.

The new solution enables flexibility in services and pricing, and will help Länsförsäkringar Bank launch new and innovative products faster. Its architectural features enable easier integration with third party systems. Moreover, a rich API repository will enable Open Banking and participation in the larger ecosystem.
