Banque de La Poste Replaces Back Office
Banque de La Poste will replace its existing back office infrastructure with Callataÿ & Wouters’ Thaler on SAP. Callataÿ & Wouters jointly secured the deal with its partner Logica after surpassing other industry vendors during a thorough seven-month selection process. The bank is scheduled to go live with Thaler on SAP in 1Q11.
Building on the existing relationship with Banque de La Poste, which has been using Thaler along with in-house built software for more than 10 years, Callataÿ & Wouters will now provide the bank with an integrated end-to-end flexible platform to replace the existing systems.
Marc Van der Schueren, managing director, chief operating officer (COO), Banque de La Poste, said: “In Callataÿ & Wouters and its partners we found the right support to move our banking operations to new efficiency levels. For Banque de La Poste, this project is first and foremost a way of re-thinking our approach to core banking: Callataÿ & Wouters and Logica will help us re-define best practice and business process methodology. We are confident that Thaler on SAP will dramatically reduce our cost of ownership allowing us to invest resources more effectively.”
