Tokyo-based NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, is teaming with Australian account aggregation software vendor eWise Systems to develop an online service targeted at Japanese firms.
Scheduled for introduction this March, the service will be based on a Japanese version of eWise's account aggregation application product, which includes e-marketing, transaction and wealth management and data feed applications.
The service will include consulting, systems design, construction, operation and outsourcing services, delivered by NTT Com.
NTT Com says as broadband continues to spread, demand for online services - including private banking that supports asset management and financial planning - is increasing in Japan, and it plans to offer CRM, security and IT investment evaluation through partnerships.
Sydney-based eWise's aggregation software is used by UK online bank Egg and Australian bank Westpac.
