• Aimed at businesses of all sizes, the proprietary ecosystem delivers significant cost and time efficiencies

Abu Dhabi, UAE; 20 January 2022: Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, a leading financial institution, has been awarded the Best Business Ecosystem Platform in 2021 by The Asian Banker during the Middle East and Africa Transaction Finance and Bank Quality Awards.

The award recognises the implementation of a digital ecosystem that allows the integration of a payment gateway with a digital wallet for one of ADIB’s largest corporate customers.  The initiative enables end users to make payments directly via their card through the platform and facilitate the collection process for the customer.

Michael Gregory Davis, Global Head of Wholesale Banking Group at ADIB said: “By tailoring the ecosystem to our client’s unique requirements, ADIB created a single, seamless solution facilitating live reporting and reconciliation of millions of automated transactions.  We were delighted to deliver significant cost savings and efficiency gains for our client whilst also improving the end-user experience.”

As part of their vision of becoming the world’s most innovative Islamic bank, ADIB has been investing in digital platforms in order to leverage the innovative potential of these digital tools beyond the traditional scope of banking. ADIB’s efforts in the realm of banking innovation have been widely recognised.  Previously, the bank was named “World’s Best Islamic Digital Bank” by Global Finance and the Best Bank in the UAE by Forbes magazine.
