Micro Informatique & Technologies SA, better known as MIT, was founded by three brothers who computerized the operations of their international commodity trading company in the early 1970s.

Their success astonished even their own bankers, who, at that time, were still treating all of their documentary credit operations manually. This sparked the idea of founding a software company to automate and streamline banking operations, and led to the creation of MIT in 1984.

Taking advantage of their experience as software users, and teaming up with talented professionals in the software and banking fields, the three brothers succeeded in creating a user friendly software, CREDOC, for the banking industry.

The CREDOC story

CREDOC, an advanced software solution designed for the documentary credit departments of banks, was an immediate success. It was instantly recognized by banking professionals as a most complete software system for the administration and management of such departments.

After more than 30 years of existence and several enhancements using technological developments in banking operations, CREDOC, has been acquired by more than 45 major Swiss and European banks.

Corporate vision

Today, MIT is proud to say that the work of its entire personnel is governed by the founding principles of the company: Quality and Service.

More than a thousand users around the world are the best testimony to MIT's commitment to their clients and to the continuing progress of the products and services.
