Nadeem Busheri, head of the DIB Information Technology department, said: "We have been working on implementing Flexcube for twenty months, and we are now pleased to announce that this has been deployed across our entire network. This system empowers us with a comprehensive Islamic banking platform and enables us to offer leading-edge Islamic products and services. In addition, it provides us with greater agility for future product development."

S.Sundarajan, Customer Fulfilment, Senior Vice-President, Banking Products, i-flex solutions, said: "We are very happy that DIB has gone live on Flexcube.

We are confident that this implementation will enable DIB to meet the expectations of its customers for Islamic banking products that compare in innovativeness and versatility with the best that conventional banking can offer."
