100% owned by one of the largest European banking groups – the Crédit Agricole Group – Credibom is a specialised bank in consumer credit and a car finance reference in Portugal, which offers customers and partners flexible, transparent and appropriate credit solutions. Operating in Portugal for over 20 years, Credibom provides personalised and transparent advice, seeking to find the best solution for each case. Credibom has the ambition to be the best Consumer Credit Bank in Portugal through their Partners and Customers’ recognition.

Following a core system reformulation that started in 2017, Credibom required the implementation of a robust middleware platform to allow the sustainable growth of integration between systems in the organisation.

“The big challenge was changing the integration paradigm, moving from point to point to centralised and standardised integration, ensuring a point of convergence for existing and new integrations as the bank’s systems change and integration needs increase.

At this moment, we can orchestrate and change services with little change cost for consumers. In addition to this, we can quickly and effectively monitor the use of services and ensure a better quality of service for the business.”
