The first ever implementation of T24 release 17 in the world by MCB Consulting

The Botswana Building Society (BBS) go-live on the CBS (T24) marks another premiere for MCB Consulting (MCBCS): Indeed, this is the first successful implementation of T24 (Release 17) in the world!

BBS contributes to the social and economic uplift of Botswana which MCBCS has been accompanying in its journey to become a commercial bank. In the words of Mrs. Punah Moyo, Head of Projects, BBS, “the upgrade to the latest release of T24 R17 was a challenging but very exciting engagement. We are very pleased to have successfully gone Live with this mission critical project within the project timelines. The Implementation partners MCBCS were very professional and knowledgeable. We are excited that the BBS team has benefited a lot from their experience and the professional manner in which they delivered the project. The successful implementation provides us with a competitive technology platform that we can leverage on as we continue our transformation journey.”

It is worth mentioning that despite the everyday challenges of the competitive market in which MCBCS operates, it is continuously evolving and thriving on the battlefield to make things happen. Jean-Michel Felix, CEO, MCBCS, stated: “We are extremely privileged and proud to have successfully accompanied BBS in becoming the first financial institution in the world operational on the latest release of T 24 R17. The partnership mindset prevailing during this project coupled with our particular banker-implementer background have certainly contributed massively to this resounding achievement, mindful of its strategic importance in the quest of the organisation to become a fully commercial bank.”
