Due to the deployment of a new computer system on 20 November, Landsbankinn's online banking service will be reduced on the weekend of 18 and 19 November. Online banking and branch services will also be reduced for the better part of Monday, 20 November.

During these days, it will be possible to transfer funds in online banking yet transferred amounts will not appear on statements and access to them will be limited. Debit and credit cards will function as usual with the exception that temporary disruptions might occur to debit card functions on Sunday, 19 November.

We recommend that customers who need to complete important banking business before Monday 20 November tend to such business before the weekend of 18-19 November to avoid any inconvenience.

The service disruption is described in more detail below.

Important renewal of old systems

Renewal of the deposit and payment systems of the Icelandic Banks' Data Centre (RB) and Landsbankinn is one of the most extensive software projects undertaken by RB and the Bank. The new system replaces many older systems, the oldest of which is 40 years old. Replacing these older systems will be a new software solution from Sopra Banking Software. The new system simplifies and updates the Bank's technological infrastructure. It is more economical and adaptable than older systems. The Sopra system opens the way to increased integration of software solutions in the financial system.

During the deployment process, the Bank must reduce service in both individual and corporate online banking and branches during the weekend of 18-19 November, as well as on Monday, 20 November. Landsbankinn regrets the inconvenience such reduced service causes. It is necessary in order to deploy the new computer system as effectively as possible.
