News Releases

FIS HORIZON Selected by Six More Community Banks



Many community banks like Frederick County Bank are choosing FIS as their trusted core technology provider

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 24, 2010 – FIS™ (NYSE:FIS), one of the world’s largest providers of banking and payments technology, today announced that it has completed six new agreements for its HORIZON core banking platform so far this year. These six wins are in addition to the 16 HORIZON deals FIS inked in 2009.


HORIZON is a highly integrated, core account processing solution equipped to meet the needs of financial institutions. It offers clients enhanced financial reporting capabilities, innovative transaction processing and advanced relationship management technology to help banks gain a more comprehensive view of their customers. HORIZON is built to run on the IBM® iSeries platform and offers flexibility in deployment options, including licensed in-house software or a variety of outsourcing options.



Frederick County Bank, a community bank located in Frederick, Maryland, is one of the six newest HORIZON clients. “Long-term, part of FCB’s strength can be attributed to strategic alliances with equally strong and stable business partners such as FIS,” said Marty Lapera, president and chief executive officer of Frederick County Bank. “FCB is a very healthy bank and we have an aggressive growth strategy in place for 2010. We required a technology platform that would support our plan for expansion and believe that we will achieve that with FIS’ HORIZON system.”



FCB conducted an extensive search for a new core system that included bank-wide employee involvement, an independent consultant and also focused on requests from customers to enhance online banking applications, including bill payment for both personal and business accounts.



“Based on our core processing due diligence, we believe converting to HORIZON complements our existing products and services from FIS and provides us with significant efficiencies and a foundation for future growth,” stated Jay M. House, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Frederick County Bank. “Through staff recommendations, we were confident that HORIZON offered much more than standard functionality, flexibility and a commitment to develop and deliver enhancements, as well as excellent integration and support. Our strong partnership with FIS will help us to offer quality customer service to consumers and businesses for many years to come.”



“Partnerships with successful community institutions like Frederick County Bank are very important to FIS,” said Anthony Jabbour, executive vice president, FIS Financial Solutions Group. “The momentum that FIS is experiencing with its highly integrated HORIZON platform translates to gaining additional market share. FIS’ HORIZON is increasingly sought after by community banks who are interested in innovative core technology that will enable them to compete more effectively with larger banks.”

Visa Switching to Chip and PIN in New Zealand



Credit card companies play security catchup

By ROELAND VAN DEN BERGH - The Dominion Post




Alarming News for the future of magnetic stripe cards?


Rising fraud and the Rugby World Cup have pushed credit card companies to ditch magnetic swipe cards in favour of more-secure chip cards from next month.  Visa regional manager Ian McKindley said all credit cards issued from April 1 would have a microchip embedded in them.



All 2.6 million Visa credit cards on issue in New Zealand will be replaced with chip cards within four years.
Visa’s Country Manager for New Zealand, Sean Preston, said Visa was working with financial institutions and retailers to upgrade more than 2.6 million Visa cards in New Zealand[1] and thousands of merchant point of sale terminals and ATMs to chip and PIN technology.
“From April 2010, all new Visa credit cards issued in New Zealand will feature secure embedded smart chips to give New Zealanders a higher level of confidence in the security of their transactions,” Mr Preston said. “This will be followed by the upgrade of Visa debit and reloadable prepaid cards from April 2012,” he added.
As part of a range of security improvements, signing for credit card payments will be banned from April 2012 and a Pin to verify transaction will become mandatory for swipe cards. About a third of customers still sign for credit card transactions.
"While signatures served us well over the years it has never stopped a fraudster," Mr McKindley said.
Editor's Note:  We manufacture an EMV (Smart Card Reader) version of our PCI 2.0 Certified PIN Entry Device.  Rather than swiping the card in a magnetic card reader, you would insert your card in our chip reader and, as is done now, enter your PIN.  For more information on our EMV Card Reader, please contact me.
