Eiger Systems teams up with LogicaCMG to present SEPA Workshop series

9 October 2006

Eiger Systems, an Experian® company and a leading developer of strategic payment solutions, and LogicaCMG today announced that they will be co-sponsoring and delivering a series of national one-day SEPA workshops in March 2007.

The workshops are being developed in response to research by Voca*, which shows that only 15% of UK businesses know about the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA). SEPA is an EU initiative that seeks to remove the barriers to the movement of funds across borders and reduce the cost of euro payments to the level of domestic transfers.

Intended for corporate organisations, the SEPA workshops will consider the implications of SEPA for business and set out a framework and timescale for compliance. In addition, the workshops will demonstrate how organisations should use the initiative to achieve Straight Through Processing for their electronic payments.

Commenting on the workshops, Jim Conning, Managing Director of Eiger Systems, said:

“Eiger Systems’ expertise and knowledge of SEPA plus LogicaCMG’s unrivalled experience working with many of the UK’s leading organisations creates a tremendous combination. Together, we will rapidly fill the information vacuum that currently exists at the highest levels of the UK corporate community about European developments in the payments arena.”

David Philipson, Head of Payments at LogicaCMG said:

“LogicaCMG recognises the depth and breadth of Eiger Systems’ data validation and payments processing expertise. Given the diminishing time left before SEPA’s introduction, the need for corporates to make rapid progress in their preparations is becoming urgent. These seminars are a vital tool towards that end.”
