Over the years, Bank Sohar has grown on various balance sheet parameters and has been among the most customer-centric banks in Oman. This has made it the fourth largest bank in Oman within a decade. However, maintaining this value proposition and enabling business growth in the digital age required the bank to reinvent itself as a digital organization.
Bank Sohar decided to upgrade to the latest version of Finacle Core Banking Solution to build a robust, scalable and flexible platform for its digital transformation. This has enabled it to deliver frictionless experience and innovative products to its digital-native customers.
When Bank Sohar first implemented Finacle during the launch of the bank, it created a record of sorts by completing the implementation in 56 days. This time was no different with the bank and Infosys Finacle team ensuring an equally smooth implementation.

“We were looking to build a robust technology foundation in line with our vision to be the best digital bank in the region. We decided to upgrade to the latest version of Finacle Core Banking Solution as the solution would help us in accelerating our speed of innovation, provide extensive automation and help us deliver intuitive & inspiring customer experiences. Finacle has been a reliable partner over the years, and this time again, the team has helped us in ensuring a smooth technology transformation.”
