Atos Origin and Volkswagen Ban have extended their IT services agreement for a further five years.
Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company, has carried out the technical processing of over 370,000 Volkswagen Visa and Mastercards since 1996. Currently, the IT deal includes classical processing services, as well as extra services such as bonus programmes.
The contract extension also covers the Sempris graphical user interface for the card management system that Atos Worldline recently developed. From September 2005 Volkswagen Bank will have direct real-time access to Atos Worldline systems.
The new service is part of a professional workflow management system. Atos said this would improve the value chain at the financial institutions and downstream service centres and lead to a higher added business value.
Sempris will provide an overview of all business transactions by means of a logical step-by-step process, making it easier and faster for system users, independent of complex mainframe tasks and rigid prescribed application routines.
