Compass Plus and Unibank project wins 2020 bobsguide award

Compass Plus is delighted to announce its project with Unibank - one of the largest, most innovative and successful retail banks in Azerbaijan – has been named Best Retail Banking System Integration in the 2020 bobsguide awards.

The partners, who originally teamed up in 2018 to migrate Unibank’s personalisation centre from several third-party solutions to an in-house centre built on solutions from Compass Plus, have implemented many successful projects together over the last year. One such project was to connect Unibank’s in-house processing directly to Mastercard. The integration marked the completion of the second phase of a major project to migrate the bank’s payment infrastructure to the open development payments platform, TranzAxis, from Compass Plus.

At the time of the project, Farid Mamadezadeh, CTO at Unibank, said: "This migration project is strategic for us. The TranzAxis platform, built on the most advanced and cutting-edge technology, represents a new generation of industrial-strength systems for banking service automation. We are confident that this project will enable us to not only launch the most advanced and highest quality products and services to market, as demanded by our customers now and well into the future, but do so in the fastest time.”

The awards, which are organised by bobsguide, are subject to several rounds of assessment by the judging panel, with those that show the strength of the technology update, the impact on the customer and the standing out of the system in the marketplace named winners.
