Poland's Bank Zachodni WBK is upgrading to the EMV-enabled version of Nomad Software's payments processing product Cortex.

Nomad says the system will enable the bank, which is the fourth largest card issuer in Poland, to participate in the country's EMV trials later this year, as both an issuer and an acquirer of chip cards.

Bank Zachodni says Cortex was initially implemented as an authorisation engine across the bank's network of cash machines. Since then the solution has been extended to include support for an ATM-based mobile top up service.

The latest version of the product will also allow the bank to introduce new online financial services, including bill payments at ATMs.

Ireneusz Wieczorek, IT team manager business support divison, Bank Zachodni, comments: "Not only will we be pioneering ATM bill payments, we will also one of the first banks in Poland to issue and acquire smart cards."

Additionally, the bank is working with Nomad Software to centralise its payment architecture by consolidating its current implementations of Cortex at its sites in Poznan and Wroclaw. Bank Zachodni says the move will bring cost savings and help achieve consistency of card products and services across the group.
