Our Origin Story
In 1998, a bold ambitious team of two first launched Bankers’ Realm 2000 into the world. Having received unprecedented accolades for the product, it quickly developed into a core banking application (Bankers Realm – BR), which was further advanced to include microfinance (Bankers Realm Microfinance – BR MFS) in its functionality. As the origin of Craft Silicon, this marked the creation of our first commendable offerings, while the former went on to become our trail-blazing, flagship product.
Seizing this new opportunity, we ventured into potential global markets, offering a range of financial solutions like web-based platforms and BR Islamic included amongst our BR Solution.
With consistent growth over the years, we have thrived and gradually expanded our employee base to over 100 at our Head Office in Nairobi; 100 who work out of our Development and Research Center base in Bangalore, south India; not to forget the dynamic teams at our partner offices in the U.S and Nigeria.
Ours is a high-tech campus, with centers engaged in state-of-the-art software development, research and Alternate Channel Development. In a nutshell, Craft Silicon was born from humble beginnings, ‘from a simple idea to a dream come true’.
