Euronet Worldwide has signed an extended contract to deliver ATM, debit card, POS and merchant and telephone banking software solutions to the Pacific operations of Australia's Westpac Banking Corporation.

The technology will be implemented in several new sites, including Vanuatu, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Samoa and the Solomon Islands. The agreement also includes the relicensing of the same software in the existing Fiji and Papua New Guinea sites.

The project will standardise Westpac Pacific Banking's IT and operational infrastructure across the region, and will service Westpac's more than 500,000 customers over the seven Pacific island locations through a central contact point in Sydney, Australia.

Peter Mills, Westpac head of technology, distribution and operations, comments: "We wanted to expand our automated solutions to all of our island sites to standardise procedures and develop a centralised processing centere."

Westpac's Fiji and Papua New Guinea locations have used Euronet's solutions since 1999, running a set of diverse applications over the vendor's Integrated Transaction Management middleware platform.

In early 2001 Euronet and Westpac helped standardise the National Bill Payment Systems in Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
