Temenos (SIX: TEMN) today announced that Cooperative Bank of Oromia (Coopbank), one of the largest banks in Ethiopia, has launched CoopApp and CoopApp Alhuda on Temenos Digital (Infinity), delivering a modern digital experience for conventional and Islamic banking with greater personalization for more than 12 million customers.

Using Temenos Digital, Coopbank has gained a comprehensive 360-degree customer view to enable personalization of need-based financial products and services, and deliver a unified banking experience across various touchpoints, including online banking, mobile banking, ATMs, and in-branch services.

Coopbank has relied on the agility and scalability of the Temenos Banking Platform for core banking since 2017, enabling a significant expansion in its customer base and lines of business. The bank extended its relationship with Temenos to provide an end-to-end platform, going live with Temenos Digital in September 2023 with delivery partner Xpert Digital.

The strategic partnership with Temenos reinforces the bank’s dedication to leveraging state-of-the-art technology to meet the diverse needs of its customers. In addition to Temenos Digital and Core, the bank has deployed Temenos market-leading solutions including Temenos Payments Hub and Temenos Data Hub to accelerate innovation and bring positive change to the Ethiopian banking environment.
