Core banking is a back-end system that connects multiple branches of the same bank together to deliver operations such as loan management, withdrawals, deposits, and payments in real time. Core banking software is software that banks use to manage their most critical processes, such as customer accounts, transactions, and risk management. It is the central nervous system of a bank, and it is essential for providing a seamless customer experience (CX) and maintaining compliance with regulations.

Core Banking Software Market Insights

The increase in customer satisfaction is a major driver of the core banking software market. Core banking software has been associated with a better user experience. Customers like the flexibility of being able to conduct financial transactions from different places as needed.
