URBIS LINC package migration for OTP Group

October 21, 2015

In close cooperation with their partner Jetsol, Asysco has won a large migration project with OTP Banka Hrvatska (OBH), Croatia. As part of a major effort, aligning with and adding value to OTP Group’s Unisys roadmap, Jetsol and Asysco will roll out a complete turn-key migration of OBH’s URBIS package.

After a very successful Proof of Concept (which was combined with a Site Survey in order to build the business case), Asysco has been selected against Unisys who had proposed a migration to AB Suite.
