NCR and Bank One board Corillian Voyager

Corillian has signed a multi-year reseller agreement with NCR for the delivery of hosted e-finance solutions to banks in North and South America.

Under the terms of the agreement, NCR will sell Corillian's Voyager platform as its preferred retail Internet banking offering for mid to large-sized financial institutions. NCR's Internet banking service is run in a managed server model and targeted for financial institutions looking to outsource, rather than deploy Voyager on-site.

Greg Hanson, general manager of e-commerce solutions, NCR, says the company conducted extensive scalability and ease-of-use testing of the major Internet banking packages and Corillian's Voyager came out on top.

The Voyager platform provides a link between a financial institution's legacy host system and its customers, using Internet browsers, personal financial management programs and Internet-ready wireless devices. The system operates on Microsoft Windows 2000 and SQL Server 2000.

In a related announcement, Bank One has migrated its 700,00 plus online banking customers from the defunct IBM-led Integrion platform to the Corillian system. The switch took almost eight months to complete.

Bank One, the fifth-largest bank holding company in the US, says it is signing 35,000 new online banking customer every month. One in five of the bank's current account holders currently bank online.

Corillian says the new platform will provide customers with real-time access to their accounts as well as enhanced bill payment and presentment capabilities, customised sorting and tracking options and the ability to download statement data to personal financial management software like Microsoft Money and Quicken.
