Finastra awards key strategic partners at annual Partner Day

New York City, US - June 10, 2020 Finastra has named Accenture “Partner of the Year’ at its annual Partner Day, held virtually on June 9, 2020. The firm is being honored for its commitment to working closely with Finastra to deliver innovative solutions to the global banking industry, including the largest-ever Fusion Loan IQ deal, the first Fusion Loan IQ project in mainland China, and a record five innovation projects relating to payments in the cloud, treasury and risk-as-a-service, and more. Accenture currently has more than 300 consultants who are certified to deliver Finastra solutions, with an additional 200 in the process of being certified.

“We have worked alongside Finastra for several years to help our banking customers improve their lending, payments and digital capabilities with innovative, easy to plug in, cloud-based solutions,” said Alan McIntyre, Senior Managing Director and Global Head of Accenture’s Banking practice. “Through our Accenture Finastra Innovation Center, we work together to develop solutions and build unique accelerators to quickly deliver innovations to our clients. We are pleased to be named the ‘Finastra Partner of the Year,’ a recognition of our expertise and commitment to innovation.”

“At Finastra, we recognize that collaboration is the key to innovation - it is at the heart of everything we do,” said Denise Parker, Senior Vice President, Partners and Ecosystem, Finastra. “The pace at which the industry is transforming and the rate at which customers’ demands are evolving, means that partnering is, quite simply, a necessity. Through our extensive partner program, we are able to deliver better experiences to our mutual customers. We thank Accenture - and all of our partners - who have demonstrated a shared vision for collaboration and have worked with us to deliver significant technological innovation and transformation to the global banking community.”
