T Bank, Bhutan Goes Live on Rupay and National QR Code Systems with Maximus EFT Switch and Card Management System


T Bank Ltd., a commercial bank promoted by Bhutan’s Tashi Group, has moved from a third-party hosted switch to its own in-house EFT Switch and Card Management System from Maximus. Mr. Pema Tshering, Chief Executive Officer of T Bank, said on the occasion of the bank going live “the new Switch and Card Management system will give T Bank’s leverage to offer omni channel services to its customers, connect to India’s Rupay network, and establish the foundation for handling five times the current transaction levels. All these at competitive cost of ownership to the bank.”

T Bank had decided last year to insource its IT operations and in this connection had floated a tender earlier this year. The bank opted for the Maximus Switch suite and accordingly placed the order for the technology early May this year. Maximus completed the migration in a record time of two months, despite the lockdown due to Covid-19 and with most of its technical team working from home. The new EFT Switch is connected to the Bhutan Financial Switch operated by the Royal Monetary Authority of Bhutan and is also networked with the NPCI’s Rupay network. The technology for setting up a merchant payment network has also been provided by Maximus. With the implementation of EFT Switch, Card Management and Merchant Management technology for T Bank, Maximus has become a dominant payments solution provider in this country. According to V. Shankar, Founder & CEO of Maximus Infoware (India) Pvt. Ltd. “Our commitment is to be a trusted technology provider in the banking, payments and financial services space.
