“Crédit Lyonnais selects Atos Origin to overhaul its sub-participants’ eBanking service”

Paris, August 30, 2004

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company, was selected by the French bank Crédit Lyonnais, to complete a major overhaul of its sub-participants management eBanking service. This was achieved through the introduction of an innovative, leading-edge technological solution that includes new bank standards such as EMV. Users access it from a web interface.

Thanks to the electronic banking solution deployed by the teams of Atos Worldline and those of the Bank, this year, Crédit Lyonnais began offering its sub-participant clients a complete, hi-tech service. Through this unique service, Crédit Lyonnais has the resources to win over new sub-participants in the coming years.

Atos Worldline currently manages more than 300,000 client contracts and 1.5 million transactions each month. The size of this industrial solution will allow it to process volumes that are much greater again.

This complete solution covers the back office and the management of bearers and merchants. Very easy to use, it can be accessed via a web interface for sub-participant users such as those of Crédit Lyonnais.

The solution is based on the ready-to-use IOCard software package that allows for very quick implementation. Atos Worldline has made considerable interface-related efforts with Crédit Lyonnais' specific IT system and has done a great deal of work to adapt the software package's functions to French domestic CB2C formats. This software package is recognised as the market's benchmark standard.

Crédit Lyonnais has reasserted its trust in Atos Wordline, which was already operating the bank's sub-participants' electronic banking service prior to its overhaul.
