MyBucks Banking Corporation Simplifies Banking with Biometric Identification and Authentication

Sofia, 19 June 2020: MyBucks Banking Corporation, a leading challenger bank in Sub-Saharan Africa and the fastest growing bank in Mozambique, has completed a project in partnership with SG NewTech that will enable its customers to authenticate banking transactions using biometric technology. 

MyBucks has implemented “one touch” identification as part of the requirement for completing in- branch transactions. Previously, customer identification was done using two different systems, which prolonged teller turnaround time and introduced control risks. With this new technology integrated by SG NewTech to the bank’s core system, the customer identification and branch transaction processing have become one seamless process. This allows MyBucks to cost-effectively decrease time at the teller during branch operations and meet regulatory compliance guidelines for multi-factor authentication.

George Nheweyembwa, MBC Mozambique’ CEO commented: “With the rise in identity theft we see today, financial institutions are increasingly turning to technology for solutions. Integrating our biometric and core banking solutions was the natural first step in our overall strategy to strike the balance between convenience and security. We are delighted that we found a reliable and experienced partner in SG NewTech for this integration.” 

“There was a threat for the project to be disrupted by COVID-19 situation. Fortunately, MBC management demonstrated high-level of flexibility to continue the project fully remote. We are very thankful to MBC for going the extra mile in making this project a success,” said Tunde Oladele, CEO of SG NewTech.
