Unisys and Microsoft are working together on Internet banking projects that will enable financial institutions to deal with their customers over the Web.
The package is based on Microsoft Money 97, which offers home banking services such as bill payment and access to account information from the PC. Unisys will add its integration and marketing services.
The first European bank to take advantage of this is Bawag of Austria. It has integrated Money 97 into its IT infrastructure. Customers wanting to use home banking are required to buy their own licences of the software as well as ensuring they have the relevant hardware and communications infrastructure to access their accounts over the Web.
Michael Dusche, worldwide retail banking industry manager at Microsoft, said: ?The Unisys/Microsoft solution will enable the customers of financial institutions to bank 24 hours a day, seven days a week from their PCs at home or from their laptop computers anywhere, with more control via the Internet.?
