Temenos (SIX: TEMN), the banking software company, today announced the winners of this year’s Temenos Partner Awards at its annual flagship event, the Temenos Community Forum. These awards recognize the commitment and contribution that Temenos’ much-valued partners bring to the Temenos community.
Partner of the Year
This award recognizes the partner who played an outstanding role for Temenos in 2017 in two key ways: involvement in the highest number of closed deals and the highest customer satisfaction score. Cognizant has set the bar high on both counts – they were involved in the largest value of license deals closed last year and scored highly in customer satisfaction. The partnership is built on a shared philosophy of digital enablement and it is no coincidence that Cognizant was Temenos’ partner on Temenos’ the biggest deal of 2017.
Technology Partner of the Year
Underpinning the power of Temenos’ banking software solutions is the platform infrastructure, which is where Temenos Technology Partners come in. This year’s award went to Microsoft, a long-time partner of Temenos and a leader in its field, that continues to innovate, and has gone the extra mile in partnering with Temenos to find and win opportunities.
Regional Partner of the Year
Aspire is a technology services partner that delivers accelerated implementations services from its base in Singapore. The company received this award for delivering consistently, competitively and collaboratively, and for their ability to deliver quality results during every phase of an implementation.
Temenos MarketPlace Provider of the Year
Temenos MarketPlace was launched in 2016 to facilitate the exchange of value between banks and fintech companies, and create an ecosystem of innovation. This year’s award goes to EdgeLab, which provides an investment intelligence platform that captures true risk and solves complex problems. This time last year the fintech was an Innovation Jam finalist. Since then the company has been using its cutting-edge technology to enhance Temenos WealthSuite to help investment managers to better manage and optimize risk.
The Temenos Learning Community Commitment to Learning Award
Launched in 2017, the Temenos Learning Community (TLC) provides cloud-based online access to Temenos training and certification. Following the launch’s massive success, this award was created to recognize a partner who has shown true commitment to training. NDC has been a TLC advocate since its launch, being the first to sign up over 100 members, and encourages its teams to pursue training and gain accreditation.
Neal Mcloughlin, Head of Partners & Operations, Temenos, said: “At Temenos, we understand the power of partnership. We believe that our software products and our community are strengthened by alliances with leading technology and services providers. These awards are our opportunity to recognize the impact that they have on our customers and our technology, celebrate their achievements over the past year and thank them for their collaboration. Congratulations to all those who received an award – we look forward to continued mutual success.”
