The 7th Annual Conference on Electronic Banking and Payment Systems in Tehran was a great success. More than 8,000 attendees mainly from the financial sector accepted the invitation to meet with banking experts, service providers and peers and discuss digital banking. More than 100 exhibitors presented their solutions in the exhibit hall. Together with our partner and distributor Aban-IT, we were the only vendor of content services at the event and had many promising conversations at our booth and over the course of our seminar and workshop.
The Iranian market is extremely interested in digital solutions to step up their game – and not only in the banking sector. The hot topics are currently digitizing paper, implementing document management solutions and the digitalization of banking processes, e.g. lending processes. At the same time, the market in Iran is opening up to external software and service vendors. These two factors form a fertile basis for growth. Throughout the conference we had conversations with high-profile prospects, including the top five banks of the country and even the national bank of Iran.
