With this, our clients will also be offered bundled options,” he adds.

Guta says the launch follows months of meticulous planning and extensive work behind the scenes to ensure a seamless transition the new, technologically-advanced operating system.

“With the new system, our client value proposition will be enhanced exponentially, setting us well on our quest to being the most admired bank in our country,” says Guta.

Guta also hinted that the transition will be seamless as customers account numbers will not change; hence there will be no need to change their ATM cards and Cheque books.

The implementation of the new system was the collaborative effort of Nedbank teams from South Africa and Malawi. Nedbank Zimbabwe is next in line to move to the new platform, which supports Nedbank’s strategy and promise to clients to further expand its products and services into the rest of Africa.
