Hewlett-Packard has entered an alliance with Dutch-based software house Allshare to jointly promote and implement its All Media Banking solution to small, medium-sized and emerging banks across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The Allshore software suite is described as an end-to-end banking solution encompassing Quaestor, a core banking system and Aediles, a multi-channel integration architecture and CRM framework.
The two companies say they have already completed their first joint implementation of the product at ABank, a medium-sized bank in Turkey. The solution, which went live in January 2001, gives staff within ABank's branches across the country, access to consolidated information about each customer.
Available on both HP-UX and HP NetServer platforms, the system is designed to ensure easy integration with a financial institution's Internet, WAP, call centre, TV and ATM networks says Olivier Trancart, general manager, HP's e-financial services business unit. "Together we can offer a state-of-the-art core banking solution to small- and medium-sized banks that is designed to support the wide range of delivery channels available today," he says.
