Wincor Nixdorf Portavis operates new sales portal at Hamburger Sparkasse

(PresseBox) ( Paderborn, )
As part of a fundamental re-orientation of the IT at Hamburger Sparkasse (Haspa), the bank's new sales portal for use by up to five thousand employees will go live by the end of the year. Haspa's staff can look forward to having all its applications available via a single interface on the new portal, which will increase the transparency of existing sales information. Wincor Nixdorf Portavis, a joint venture of Wincor Nixdorf, Hamburger Sparkasse and Sparkasse Bremen, will assume responsibility for operating the portal.

Currently, Haspa's sales staff works with a variety of different user interfaces. The consequence is that relevant information must be hunted for and collected from a number of applications, and the results of business contacts must likewise be processed in different software programs. The convergence of all this information on a single platform will mean a considerable increase in productivity and the quality of sales processes at Hamburger Sparkasse. The application, which will run on a Unix portal server, will be used by up to 5000 Haspa employees.

Integration testing of the solution was successfully completed in September, and the sales portal is due to go live by the end of this year. Once up and running, third-party applications can also be integrated in the portal without any difficulty. Wincor Nixdorf Portavis is the first provider in Germany to operate this particular kind of server.

The services offered by Wincor Nixdorf Portavis aim to help customers increase the efficiency and flexibility of their IT and handle technology leaps better.
