“It’s a great honor to be recognized as the best-selling banking software provider in more categories than anyone else and in the most fiercely contested categories. We’re proud that we’re making banking better for 1.2 billion people every day, with clients such as PayPal launching its Buy Now Pay Later offering giving payment flexibility to consumers, Varo that is serving 180 million underbanked Americans, and Komerční Banka, part of Societe Generale, which selected Temenos to reinforce its leadership in digital banking. Thanks to our relentless investment in innovation, and our proven ability to deliver, we have occupied the top #1 or #2 positions for core banking systems for 22 consecutive years and we are also leading the way in the digital banking and payments categories. This year’s Sales League Table reconfirms Temenos as a global powerhouse, and I would like to thank our community of customers, partners and employees for collaborating with Temenos to revolutionize the industry.”

Robin Amlôt, Managing Editor at IBS Intelligence, said:

“The banking industry is facing a challenging environment with stiff competition from FinTechs and Challenger Banks introducing disrupting technologies. Many banks were already transitioning from legacy systems to innovative solutions and COVID-19 further accelerated the speed of digitization. The IBSI Sales League Table is the leading global barometer of supplier performance and during this tough year Temenos maintained its #1 position in highly competitive categories, and increased its leadership across verticals, ranking #1 in more categories than any other vendor.”
