The agreement forms part of Swedbank’s plans to increase its presence in the Norwegian market. So far the bank has concentrated on serving larger corporate clients as well as banks and other financial institutions in Norway. It is now going to focus on growth in both the commercial and retail banking markets, which places new and greater requirements on the bank’s internal and external IT solutions.
Under terms of the contract, EDB will provide internet banking related services for the retail banking market, debit cards, staging and data warehousing, branch office applications, multi-channel dissolution services and SLS (syscon lending system). In addition to these and other products, EDB will continue to provide existing services in the areas of core banking, foreign exchange and internet banking for the corporate market.
