ASELSAN, Turkey's Leading Company in Defense Electronics, Enters a Brand New Civil Zone: FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGIES
ASELSAN, which has shown remarkable performance in many fields in recent years, especially in defense electronics, from security to transportation, from health to energy, is adding a new one to its field of activity by entering the field of financial technologies. The entry into the field of financial technologies will be reflected both in the orders to be received by ASELSAN in the coming period and in its customer portfolio as diversity.
ASELSAN's projects in the field of financial technologies will focus on many different sub-titles and, accordingly, customer diversification in both the public and private sectors. The name ASELSAN will now take its place in this arena, which includes various topics from new generation banking technologies to payment recording devices.
Finance Sector, ASELSAN's New Stakeholder
The importance of technology in managing the services of all institutions operating in the financial sector is increasing day by day. With this awareness, ASELSAN has structured its organization in order to follow the developments in financial technologies and to evaluate business development opportunities in this field, taking into account the rapid changes in the financial sector.
ASELSAN's technological know-how is shared in the field of financial technologies, in line with its founding mission and by considering the public interest at the highest level. ASELSAN, one of Turkey's R&D and innovation leaders, will share its experience at every stage of engineering, from design to production, from sales to after-sales support, with the finance industry. During this sharing, instead of focusing only on its technological power in the field of defense, it will also contribute to the development of the local supplier ecosystem in the field of financial technologies by maintaining the priority of localization and nationalization as always.
“We Set Out For Turkey's Technology”
ASELSAN Chairman of the Board and General Manager Prof. Dr. Haluk GÖRGÜN said the following regarding the subject:
“We set out 46 years ago for Turkey's struggle for technological independence. In addition to our leadership in the field of defense, we have responded to the needs of our country in a timely manner and with superior quality in many civilian areas, from health to transportation. With this sense of responsibility, we will continue our technological investments without slowing down, as we have done so far. We are pleased to add a new ring to our investments in this field by entering the field of financial technologies.
We will reflect all kinds of experience we have gained in defense technologies to the field of financial technologies. We will use our ability to produce end-to-end system technology from hardware to software in financial technologies. ASELSAN, which always considers the public interest at the highest level, will take place in every topic that is needed in this new field of activity.
We have carried our vision of indigenization and nationalization to every field in which we operate. It is a tremendous development for us to be a part of keeping an important resource in our country by producing products and systems already supplied from abroad through our activities in the field of financial technologies. In addition, we will transform our hardware and software experience in areas such as information security and cryptology, which we frequently use in defense technologies, into products, systems and solutions for use in financial markets in the future. With the 129,7 million USD contract we signed today, we are proud to enter the field of financial technologies alongside the leading financial institutions of our country and to be their solution partner.”
