Epic Technology Group cemented its position as the country’s premier Fintech solution provider by securing the coveted ‘Overall Gold Award’, ‘Overall Bronze’ and eight other accolades at the recently concluded 20th National Best Quality ICT Awards 2018 (NBQSA), conducted by the Sri Lankan chapter of the BCS and the Chartered Institute for IT.
Epic demonstrated its dominance in the industry by becoming the most awarded organization of the night by bagging three Golds, one Silver, two Bronzes and three merit awards. Further recognizing the technological prowess of the organization, Epic Lanka’s Executive Chairman Dr. Nayana Dehigama said.
Epic was honoured with the BCS Sri Lanka Chairman’s Award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to Sri Lanka’s ICT sector over the last two decades.
Displaying its drive for innovation and disruption as Sri Lanka’s trend-setting FinTech powerhouse, the group clinched the National Overall Gold Award as well as the Financial Category Gold award for their Epic Card Management System (CMS).
This system can issue the smart cards, maintain the smart cards while in use and finally take the smart cards out of use.
Chip/smart cards provide the foundation for secure electronic identity, and can be used to control access to facilities, networks or computers.
As the smart cards are security credentials for authenticating the smart card holder the security requirements for a smart card management system are often high and therefore the vendors of these systems are found in the computer security industry.
The Terminal Line Encryption (TLE) Version 05, a secured channel-encryption solutionamong local and global financial institutions, won the Overall Bronze Award and the Gold Award in the Security Category.
While the Omni-Channel Synchronizer received the Silver Award in the Financial Category, Epic’s digital priority banking solution—Epic Premier Plus—clinched the Research and Development Category Bronze Award.
The three merit awards received by Epic were the Financial Category Merit for EPIC Automatic Reconciliation and Dispute Management Solution and Government and Public Sector Category Merits for DoxPro- SEA (Seafarer's Electronic Application System) and DoxPro-Single Window Platform solutions.
“There can be no better acknowledgement of the emphasis we place on service excellence than to be adjudged the best overall in the ICT sector in Sri Lanka,” Dr. Dehigama said.
