The commercial bank, which has an international strategy and is based in Grasbrunn near Munich, has selected BL Banking, a progressive and secure solution component for the EBICS ebanking protocol, as the basis for the bank's corporate customer software. After comprehensively evaluating available technologies, Wirecard Bank AG chose BL Banking as its basis for implementing EBICS. The ideal solution should not only deliver multi-bank enabled components but also be flexible enough to support new ebanking technologies and standards.
As BL Banking is compatible with Linux, Mac OS and all common versions of Microsoft Windows and supports the international EBICS protocol, Wirecard Bank is able to serve all of its corporate customers.
"Like all banks we are involved in a very competitive market environment and are confronted by constantly changing requirements," explains Oliver Bellenhaus, Executive Vice President Consumer and Corporate Banking of Wirecard Bank AG. "Our customers expect the highest possible security with the greatest possible flexibility when it comes to handling day-to-day transactions. It is precisely because we are a transaction bank that we have to set up our complete strategy so we are able to flexibly respond to what the market and customers demand."
BL Banking is particularly suitable for supplying a modern and flexible ebanking software to Wirecard Bank's corporate customers. Corporate customers receive the software as a download link or pre-installed on a USB flash drive. The customer's parameters are imported automatically via the license key. There is therefore no need to transfer user data from a BPD file, which is complicated and subject to errors. "Any migration process must improve the quality of service; the options we provide convinced Wirecard Bank," comments Uwe Ernst, Head of Sales, Business-Logics.
