Barbados, July 2014 – On the heels of introducing its new look and feel website, Republic Bank, announces the successful completion of the post-implementation review of the Infosys Finacle™ suite comprising core banking, CRM, treasury and e-banking solutions.

Finacle has helped strengthen our reputation as a provider of quality service and ability to respond to customer requirements faster, with relevant value-added offerings. Since the implementation, we have seen a steady increase in the number of new customer relationships,” said Ian De Souza, Managing Director and CEO, Republic Bank.
