ING and CoCoNet have set up a new e-banking infrastructure for ING’s corporate customers in Germany. The e-banking system was set up on CoCoNet’s Multicom Banking Server. The new system includes the migration of existing customers from the previous system of BHF-Bank. ING said that after the sale of BHF-BANK, there was an immediate need for a new e-banking system for Germany. The Multicom Banking Server is the central access point for all German e-banking customer systems – Multiweb Banking and MultiCash – to ING’s European Payment Hub in Brussels. In addition to the local German payment transactions the CoCoNet system also receives payments for ING accounts in Belgium and the Netherlands.
