If there is any immovable victor in this poll, it is Path Solutions. The Islamic finance tech giant is crowned the Best Islamic Technology Provider for the 13th year running, a testament to the firm’s unquestionable dominance in the space. Its victory is backed by an impressive year comprising numerous high profile new contracts particularly in the African region: Somalia’s Amana Bank and MyBank; Sudan’s Al Baraka Bank, Africa and Gulf Bank as well as Al Khaleej Bank; and Morocco’s Bank Assafa.

The year 2020 is also momentous for Path Solutions as it marked the start of its intelligent digital initiative roadmap with the unveiling of two new platforms: Path Digital and Path Intelligence, bolstering its open banking and core banking offerings.
