Temenos has announced that ZainCash, a payment service provider in Iraq, has gone live with Temenos core banking and payments to power the growth of its digital payment services.

The successful implementation aligns with the strategic goals of the Iraqi government and the central bank to boost financial inclusion and expedite the digital transformation of the national economy. It positions ZainCash to expand its operations more effectively, elevate the customer experience, and swiftly introduce new products.

ZainCash has rapidly expanded, achieving over 1.2 million app downloads. ZainCash enables users to make quick and easy local and international transfers, pay local merchants and government services, manage funds with a convenient multicurrency card (physical or virtual), as well as enjoy a variety of bonus features like digital vouchers.

ZainCash’s network of 10,000 agents ensures these financial services are available everywhere in Iraq

With Temenos, ZainCash has brought together its core banking and payments capabilities on Temenos’ flexible, composable banking platform, which enables easy integration with existing internal systems, as well as with the Central Bank of Iraq. The robust, agile platform will enable the company to scale quickly to meet growing consumer demand as it seeks to reach 3 million users by the end of the year.

ZainCash will use Temenos’ modern technology architecture with open APIs, to quickly launch a range of new services, including instant lending, and provide customised products for specific groups, such as families and students. It will also offer a digital and seamless onboarding process resulting in an improved user experience.

The Temenos platform will help ZainCash to continue widening financial inclusion by extending convenient digital financial services to more communities, including Iraq’s large unbanked population.
