“Le Fonds de Garantie des Dépôts et de Résolution (FGDR) relies on Worldline’s IT infrastructure”
Paris, 4 March 2014
Expands FGDR information system to achieve connection with 600 banking establishments
Worldline, Atos subsidiary for e-payment and transactional services, has been chosen by the Deposit Guarantee and Resolution Fund (FGDR) to develop and host the information system conceived to operate a compensation of the customers of a failing bank. The Worldline solution will ensure that the process is as automated as possible and provide high levels of traceability and security.
Interconnected with French banks, the Worldline solution will also pilot processes with a call centre, a desktop publishing centre to print and send compensation letters as well as a digitisation centre for customer correspondence. It will also provide an Internet gateway so that the customers of a failing bank will be able to follow the progress of their compensation claims online.
"Developing a tool capable of handling the huge variety of customer profiles and accounts to be compensated, supporting regulatory and organisational developments, and guaranteeing the security and confidentiality of the banks' data, these represent just some of the difficult requirements that Worldline was able to fulfil. After several months of design and development, the project is now in its operational phase. As planned, exchange tests with the banks are currently ongoing" stated Pierre DUMAS, Operations Director at FGDR.
"Worldline is very happy to support the Deposit Guarantee and Resolution Fund with its information system. Using process digitisation and big data solutions, Worldline is able to integrate and process complex flows and high file volumes" said Pascal Dehaussy, Director Banking, Finance and Insurance at Worldline in France.
