Temenos T24 (T24) is a complete front- to back-office, CRM and product lifecycle management software platform that powers core banking operations.
Consistently ranked as the first or second best-selling core banking software platform worldwide for the past 14 years (International Banking Systems Sales League Table), T24 has been developed using a complete service-oriented architecture that’s modular so banks can deploy and integrate the required functionality alongside the needs of their business.
Running 24/7 and in real-time, it equips you for the banking technology and market challenges of today and tomorrow.
T24 can be implemented and managed on premise or deployed as software-as-a-service (SaaS) – a cloud-based delivery model. SaaS offers quick, easy access to T24 core banking software without the need for significant internal IT resources and expensive infrastructure, making it the ideal deployment choice financial institutions that wish to move fast without the burden of complicated in house IT systems.
T24 integrates seamlessly with both back office data and self-service channels to provide a consistent customer experience. It is completely compatible with your existing banking systems, enabling you to deploy and control a flexible range of multi-channel, next generation banking services for your customers – efficiently, securely, cost effectively and profitably.
T24 can be implemented as a model bank version with built-in industry best practice processes, or as a highly configurable version that Temenos tailors to your specific requirements, ensuring efficiency and compliance with all internal and external regulations – or as a combination of both.
T24 is based on an advanced technology architecture that provides platform independence, real-time interfaces, extreme usability, high performance, excellent productivity for configuration and deployment and modular components. It has the flexibility to support the needs of any bank – from the smallest greenfield operation to the largest multinational.
T24 has an unrivalled track record worldwide in:
- reducing the cost of ownership
- enhancing productivity
- mitigating risk
- expanding channels-to-market
- lowering costs
- improving customer service
- optimising up-sell and cross-sell opportunities

Coded to provide a balance of high performance, extensibility and upgradeability, T24 is based on industry standards. Hardware and database agnostic, T24 runs as a message-driven bean in Java standard JEE application servers.
Applications can interact with T24 through industry standard OData or web services interfaces and can integrate with T24 using event-driven messages.
T24 has its own browser-based user interface providing responsive design for desktops, tablets and smartphones. Being platform-agnostic means banks can choose the best vendor or environment for their needs, and change without altering their T24 investment, maximizing its longevity. T24 users can also tailor their functionality and flexibility without compromising their ability to upgrade to later versions. T24 provides highly productive design tools for model-driven development and change deployment.
Multiple sector deployment
Temenos T24 provides a high performance foundation for you to manage users, customers, processes, risks, delivery channels and applications – as well as deploy a full range of banking services across specialized lines of business.
T24 is the most widely deployed core banking software globally (International Banking Systems annual core banking sales report), and this experience continues to be incorporated into T24, giving it the most comprehensive coverage across retail, corporate, wholesale, universal, Islamic, private wealth management and microfinance banking.
T24’s core banking solutions include:
- T24 is a massively scalable straight-through-processing solution. Robust transaction processing engines facilitate highly automated transaction handling from multiple channels and devices, driving growth and profitability for the bank. Key features include user configurable automated exception handling and a transaction recycling mechanism, plus protection from unwanted costs and potentially fraudulent transactions.
Regulation and compliance
- T24 provides an IFRS solution with the capability to classify and measure financial instruments, recognize the profit and loss, and enable full disclosure, as well as supporting your local GAAP accounting treatment. It also provides support for regulatory frameworks, such as Basel II and III, and regulatory reporting including:
- FATCA compliance (for US-source income), through comprehensive functionalities relating to client identification, calculation of the withholding tax and reporting requirements
- MiFID compliance, through a process that ensures trades are placed on MiFID-compliant stock exchanges and are executed at the best price.
Despite the sophistication of self-service channels, human contact through the front office remains the channel of choice for many clients.
It is also critical for handling complex transactions, where advice or consultation is required. T24’s customer onboarding and origination solutions enable the efficient acquisition of new clients and new business.
Processes are highly automated, but user definable, with configurable decisions to ensure efficiency and compliance with all internal and external regulations. For day-to-day transactions, T24 provides branch and call centre staff with a complete 360° view of a client’s business and activities.
