ZSS’ clients include banks like NBS, CBZ, EcoBank, MyCash, BancABC and more. If you noticed this morning BancABC put out a statement that it was facing challenges with its USSD and Internet Banking platforms:
Please note that we are currently experiencing a systems challenge where access to our Internet banking and USSD platforms 💻 is currently unavailable.— BancABC Zimbabwe (@BancabcZW) June 28, 2021

We think that the outage is a result of the challenges being faced by ZSS and it could be affecting other banks in the company’s network. As with all things of this nature we reached out to ZSS and were told that their technicians are working to resolve the issues.
