Wincor Nixdorf AG has announced a software contract with CrÃ©dit Agricole, a leading bank group in Europe.
According to a news release from Wincor Nixdorf, CrÃ©dit Agricole will control its 22,000 self-service systems throughout Europe with Wincor Nixdorf's ProClassic/Enterprise Retail Banking Solution Suite.
In the past the group has used a variety of software solutions to operate its self-service networks of ATMs, transaction terminals and statement printers. In the future, all the systems will be migrated to a single software platform.
PC/E Suite is Wincor Nixdorf's modular software suite that focuses on front-office sales and service processes at banks. CrÃ©dit Agricole has decided in favor of the software product PC/E Self-Service in a first step. The network-centric self-service solution enables the bank to manage its entire self-service network from a central server, where all of the software is housed.
The new software solution also supports the CrÃ©dit Agricole Group's multivendor strategy. As a result, terminals from different vendors can be connected to the central, Web-based server via an XML-based interface. Following Caisse d'Epargne, CrÃ©dit Agricole is the second large bank in France to decide in favor of the state-of-the-art, expandable PC/E Retail Banking Solution Suite platform to operate its self-service systems.
