Finnish card payment services firm Luottokunta has inked a five year application outsourcing contract with Accenture. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Under the deal, Accenture will develop, implement and maintain the business and Web applications that support Luottokunta's services.
Accenture says the agreement will help Luottokunta save money and improve customer service by making operations more flexible and scalable through consolidation of application development and maintenance.
Heikki Kapanen, CEO, Luottokunta, says: "While Accenture delivers world-class application support for operations, we can stay focused on building and expanding our core competency and competitive positioning within the ever evolving credit services market."
