Sword Middle East has provided leading global software solutions to the banking sector for over three decades
Sword Middle East’s branch banking solution, BEAM (Bank Environment Automation Manager), provides class-leading functionality to support the back and front-end delivery channels for retail banking. BEAM is a real-time, highly parameterized banking system offering a complete suite of specialist retail banking modules to support branch, internet and core back office operations. Components can be implemented on an individual basis or supplied as an integrated system to automate all end-to-end banking processes.
The front-end delivery channels are configured to be extremely flexible and are driven through web based technology. The web components have been designed to be very secure and yet are flexible enough to drive a wide selection of financial peripherals such as validation printers, card swipe devices, smart cards and MICR readers.
Sword Middle East’s History
In 1985, TekniCom was co-founded in Abu Dhabi by our current Business Unit Director, Brian Hannaford, and the BEAM (Bank Environment Automation Manager) suite of banking products was born.
BEAM started as a niche product offering a user friendly PC interface for foreign exchange products such as demand drafts, traveller’s cheques and FX currency trading. BEAM quickly grew to be a full banking suite with clients in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Far East, Australia and Pacific.
In 1998, we became Apak BEAM Limited after being acquired by Apak Systems Ltd and we continued to expand our product offering and client base. In 2007, Apak was acquired by the Sword Group (becoming Sword Apak) and in 2015 we became Sword Middle East to reflect our roots and our focus.
From our offices in Dubai Internet City we continue to service our retail banking clients all over the world.
