GLOBAL PAYMENTS EUROPE USES LEVEL FOUR'S ATM DEVELOPER TO REACH NEW TERRITORIES

London - 26 March 2007

Global Payments Europe, the primary provider of processing services to the largest banking groups in Central and Eastern Europe, is increasing its usage of Level Four Software’s ATM Developer solution to strengthen its ATM estate and reach out to new territories. Already the leading provider of cashless payment services for corporate clients in the Czech Republic, Global Payments Europe is now using ATM Developer to extend its ATM processing services to Slovakia and Poland.

Global Payments Europe and Level Four recognise that the demand for improved solutions for electronic payments is growing in Eastern Europe. A study commissioned by ACI Worldwide and Financial Insights in 2006 reveals that the region is set to experience the largest electronic payment growth rates of 21.6 percent to EUR25.8bn over the next five years, which will have an impact on the ATM channel.

With a network of approximately 1,800 ATMs, ATM Developer provides Global Payments Europe with the capacity to offer consistently robust and thoroughly tested ATM configurations regionally and now internationally. Dedicated to developing and delivering state-of-the-art products and services, Global Payments Europe originally deployed ATM Developer in 2004 to respond quickly to business and customer needs.

Ian Kerr, Level Four CEO, said, “The ability to react quickly to customer demands and to provide leading-edge business solutions is a key competitive differentiator for banks and processors. ATM Developer provides robust end-to-end transaction configuration and testing, quickly and efficiently. Global Payments Europe has chosen ATM Developer to simplify the development process and ensure testing consistency across all countries it operates in. We are delighted to help them drive their business forward.”

Level Four’s ATM Developer provides a comprehensive configuration file management solution for NDC/912 based ATM networks. Typically, ATM screen presentation and transaction flows have remained static due to the complexities of updating this content, but due to increasing business demands as well as regulatory technical issues this situation is changing.

ATM Developer provides a graphical user interface to manage ATM configuration files, for both screen content and logical transaction flow. ATM deployers are able to make changes quickly to respond to business and customer needs. Configuration files can then be tested online against host systems before being deployed throughout the network. The time to market of new ATM content is dramatically reduced and the user is shielded from the complexities of ATM protocols.
