Tieto and International Card Services (ICS), the largest credit card issuing business in the Netherlands, have extended their partnership to include the development of a new application for management of ICS commercial credit cards. With Tieto’s Card Services, ICS will be able to tailor product offerings both to small, medium and large corporations, as well as simplify and improve the customer service.
Through the agreement, Tieto strengthens its relationship with ICS, an independent subsidiary of ABN AMRO Bank and the largest credit card issuer in the Netherlands. The new system has been developed to make ICS’s offering more secure, flexible and cost effective, and went into operation during autumn 2014.
The new application is part of Tieto’s Card Services, the card management system that Tieto provides ICS with. Card Services has been the core application at ICS since 2000, serving its business with full flexibility and proven stability.
- Based on our experience of Tieto’s advanced and professional services we chose Tieto as IT-provider when extending our system for consumer card issuing service to the commercial cards area and have both systems running on the same platform, says Nico Lodewijk, Chief Operating Officer at ICS.
- We are proud of the confidence shown by ICS, and glad to have the privilege to further enhance the commercial card functionality together with ICS, says Vahid Zohali, Vice President Banking Sector at Tieto.
