26 January 2022

Icon Solutions, a leading specialist provider of services and technology solutions to the world’s leading financial institutions, has been awarded two top titles at the IBSi Global FinTech Innovation Awards 2021.

The company has been recognised as the ‘Best Payment Hub/Wholesale Payments Implementation’ and  ‘Most Effective DevOps Execution,’ reconfirming its prestige in the sector. The awards, organised by IBS Intelligence, were in their third edition and attracted global attention, boasting over 190 participants from 48 countries.

“Icon Solutions is to be congratulated on not one but two wins in the IBSI Global FinTech Innovation Awards 2022, winning for impact and innovation. Icon delivered powerful, cost-effective, cloud-native solutions to its client, helping the bank to build the foundations of success for the present and the future,” said Robin Amlôt, Managing Editor of IBS Intelligence, commenting on the victory.

A winning point for Icon Solutions has been the application of its payments, technical and integration expertise to create IPF. To date, IPF has enabled BNP Paribas to reach go-live for instant payments across six countries in record time and provided the opportunity to migrate existing payment types onto the platform, again with significant cost savings.

“We are proud to accept these awards from IBSI in recognition of the work with our client and partner BNP Paribas on this project,” Liam Jeffs, Sales Director at Icon Solutions, commented. “This award is further validation of how our solution, IPF: a low-code, cloud-native, open-source technology platform, accelerates payments transformation. BNP Paribas has successfully adopted IPF and they are now empowered to make autonomous changes to processes and flows to save both time and resources.”

Icon Solutions is a leading specialist provider of services and technology solutions that are simplifying banking transformation and its client base includes the likes of  BNP Paribas, HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group.
