NCR, the enterprise and middleware vendor, this week announced a partnership with CitX corp to launch a range of electronic commerce services for the healthcare, retail, financial and business sectors.
The solutions are based on NCR?s enterprise middleware.
The first two products for joint development will be called TE/MSM for medical societies and related organisations, and Intrapay NC/RPM for rental property management firms.
The Intrapay products will be available over the Internet, on a fee-for-use basis. They will run on network-centric applications based on Java and on a customised version of NCR?s top end. Medical societies across the US will be able to use Intrapay TE/MSM to manage the collection of membership fees and insurance premiums, as well as to distribute public and private information. An online service for doctors can also be provided. Property management firms will use Intrapay NC/RPM for the electronic collection of rents and distribution of payments to vendors. Explaining the reasons behind NCR?s embrace of e-commerce Randy Smerik, NCR?s vice president for data warehousing said: ?By partnering with CitX we?re able to leverage our top end enterprise middleware software that allows real estate and medical customers to access payment systems no matter where they are located.? Alyse Terhune, director of e-commerce research for Gartner group, said the partnership shows promise: ?Pulling applications off a secure Web server and paying a fee each time is a shrewd move,? she said. ?It?s a fairly visionary idea, particularly as they?re using a verticalised model to target specific sectors such as healthcare,? she added.
