The comprehensive joint venture between Digital Equipment Corp and Ericsson Information Systems, signed in September (CI No 522) is beginning to take shape, and the two companies have announced their plans for the French market. Each company will offer its customers an integrated package of hardware and software incorporating the products of both, so that users will have a single point of contact for all their banking automation needs.
