CALABASAS, Calif., April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NETSOL Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTWK), a global business services and enterprise application solutions provider, has signed a contract with a bank in the United Kingdom for the implementation of the Retail platform for its next-generation solution NFS AscentTM in the cloud.

This contract follows NETSOL's recent agreement with a large independent used vehicle finance company in the UK and covers implementation of NFS Ascent's Retail platform, including its Point of Sale solution and Contract Management System. Similar to the previous contract, implementation is expected in less than six months, enabling the bank to gain value from Ascent’s technology in the shortest possible timeframe and setting a new standard for time to deployment in the industry.

This agreement is another major milestone in our pursuit of achieving deployments both rapidly and cost-effectively through our pre-configured European NFS Ascent platform. We are now gaining momentum in our SaaS strategy with several back-to-back wins as our customers begin to realize the benefits from subscription pricing. This is a game-changing model for NETSOL and gives us a stronger, sustainable and more predictable revenue outlook. We continue to build momentum on our SaaS offerings with a strong and growing pipeline of opportunities.”

“With the Ascent platform we provide pre-built standard interfaces, regulatory framework and many other important pre-set configurations that are available from the word ‘go,’” added Najeeb Ghauri, NETSOL Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The end result: fast implementation, maximizing value and minimizing risk for our customers.”
