The multi-year agreement includes a licence fee linked to volumes. This will enable Bankart to offer a range of additional services to its client banks and their customers, leveraging the Motif platform.
Marco Casartelli, CEO of Vipera plc, commented: "We are delighted to have agreed such a significant and multi-year agreement with Bankart and we very much look forward to delivering more innovative solutions together in the future."
