2014 Client Conference

Our Client Conference was a complete success. We brought together banking and financial industry experts from around the globe. The conference was held August 12th -15th at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre in Toronto.

Our ‘Building Your Business’ theme drove the discussion, and was accentuated by presentations from renowned banking specialists. With representatives from Africa, Middle East, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean the conversations were wide-ranging and the sharing of learning was a help to everyone who attended.

Our team would like to thank everyone who attended, participated in presentations, group discussions and played a key role in our ‘Build Your Business’ theme.

All material and photos are available by request. Just email us at info@highgatesystems.com

Highgate Systems announces Alpha Banking!

It’s here. Our customers have told us what they need, and Highgate has delivered.

Highgate Systems is proud to announce the rollout of its new banking platform, Alpha Banking. Our first new customer – never before a Highgate client – is already ‘up and running’ in a 44-branch environment, and we are in the process of delivering the second implementation to another new customer.

Alpha Banking is both ‘evolutionary’ and ‘revolutionary’. It builds on the capabilities of the current Highgate Banking system using Highgate’s knowledge of customer requirements and the needs they have expressed to us. At the same time, it makes use of modern technology to deliver a flexible, customer-configurable system that Highgate’s clients can use as they require to build their businesses.

Alpha Banking was demonstrated at the recent Highgate Customer Conference in Toronto and attendees there were universally excited by the potential of this new system.
New features include:

Platform Independence – there is no longer a requirement for a specific family of servers to run Highgate Banking. Customers can choose the technology platform they wish to run on. From a large server to a laptop – Alpha Banking will run on them all. The technology platform has now become a choice driven by transaction volumes, business needs, and staff expertise.

A Browser-Based Interface – users need only have access to one of the popular browsers to use Alpha Banking. There is no requirement for any software to be installed on user machines.

Operating System Independence – clients may select an operating system that best meets their needs. Windows or Linux? It doesn’t matter – pick what works for your organization.

Database Independence – choose the database you wish to use.

General Ledger Independence – Alpha Banking has been architected to permit clients to choose the General Ledger they wish. It will then be integrated into the banking system and will provide staff with the ability to operate in a financial environment of their choosing.

Ready Integration to ‘Best of Breed’ Solutionswhen clients require something special to meet their business needs, Alpha Banking will readily integrate to a third party solution to incorporate that functionality into the Alpha environment.

Of course, all the Highgate customer channel features are available – ATM, POS, Internet Banking, and Mobile Banking as well as new products like the Alert Management Server, ICMS Delinquency Management system and International Debit Cards.

With the first customer ‘live’ and the second in implementation, Alpha Banking is ready to move forward in the marketplace. Of course, the needs of each Highgate customer are unique, and we will work with each user to configure the system to meet their specific requirements. As new modules and functionality are added, the system will grow in power, offering more and more capabilities to Highgate’s customers.

It’s new.   It’s real. It’s here. Call us.

Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) 2014 Conference

Highgate sponsored the Caribbean Association of Banks Inc. 41st AGM & Conference from November 12th – 15th, 2014 at the Radisson Grenada Beach Resort. This forum – designed for the benefit of Caribbean financial institutions and delivered by the Caribbean Association of Banks – has been a major event for many years. It brings together participants with a special interest in meeting the needs of clients in the Caribbean Region, and Highgate has been a major sponsor for many years. As always, we met with old friends and made many new ones. Regulations change, technology evolves, but the friendships made at CAB do not. Through two days of useful presentations and discussions attendees learned about the challenges facing the Region and the ways that members were addressing them.

CAB 2015 is already in planning, and as has always been the case, Highgate will be there.

Date: November 12 – 15

Location: Greenery Room at Radisson Grenada St. George’s, Grenada
