RZB Austria Installs Global Payments’

Global Payments Inc., (NYSE:GPN) a leading provider of EDI and Cash Management solutions, today announced that RZB Austria (Raiffeisen ZentralBank Osterreich AG) would be using iGlobal Banker, to power a new Internet Banking service for its corporate and financial institution customers.

The new system, called RZB [email protected] (Financial Accurate and Secure Transactioning) will be offered to banks in emerging markets which do not have SWIFT access, especially those banks in Central Eastern Europe (CEE) that have been using Telex communication for bank transfers and commercial payments. The banks will be able to send:
- Single Customer Credit Transfers
- Financial Institution Transfers for their own accounts
- General Financial Institution Transfers

Additional features including the Confirmation of Credit, Confirmation of Debit, Fixed Loan/Deposit Confirmation, Interim Transaction Report and other customer demands will be added in the future.

RZB selected Global Payments because their experience began more than 30 years ago, when its former parent company, National Data Corporation, pioneered electronic payment processing. Today, Global Payments combines leading edge technology with three decades of expertise to offer solutions that meet the needs of Banks and Multinational Corporations. iGlobal Banker has a number of exclusive features and functions, including:
