The Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC) has officially awarded a tender to a joint venture between Aqubix Ltd and Infocredit Group Ltd. This monumental collaboration aims to introduce a transformative technical platform, based on KYC Portal CLM, specifically designed for the centralised electronic digital onboarding of new customers and updating existing customer data within credit institutions.

The agreement was signed following a tender process towards the provision of the further modernisation of the banking sector through the provision of fast, flexible, reliable and efficient banking services.
