Malaysia's ANGKASA Selects Unisys Software to Enhance Client Experience and Open New Channels for Service Delivery
BLUE BELL, Pa., June 27, 2017 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia (ANGKASA) has selected the company to provide Unisys ClearPath Forward™ software technology that enables ANGKASA to deliver and expand payment services for its constituents and their customers.
ANGKASA is the leading body of Malaysia's co-operative movement representing 13,428 co-operatives (social organizations owned and managed by its members). In that role, ANGKASA provides a salary deduction service for salaried employees, credit co-operatives, financial institutions and other business organizations through an efficient, systematic and secure deduction channel. The computerized system allows government payroll offices or other employers to effectively and efficiently process monthly salary deductions, while enabling more than 3.5 million co-operative members nationwide to pay their loan installments, insurance policies, trustees accounts, recreational club memberships and workers union subscription fees.
Delivery of fast, efficient salary-deduction and payment services through the Unisys software solution is key to ANGKASA's strategy for member retention and customer satisfaction.
ANGKASA President Dato' Hj Abdul Fattah said, "ANGKASA's salary deduction service is crucial to the organization and our members. We rely on the high reliability, scalability and security of the Unisys operating platform to deliver an efficient payment service to our members, and it has become central to our IT infrastructure modernization strategy. In addition, innovative Unisys ClearPath Forward software tools are crucial for creating new online channels for service delivery to our co-operative members."
ANGKASA will use Unisys ClearPath Forward™ software technology and solutions such as Agile Business Suite (AB Suite®), Enterprise Output Manager and ePortal to develop new channels for serving customers through the web and mobile devices and deliver continuous availability for the salary-deduction service. Providing unsurpassed security, the Unisys ClearPath Forward environments are the only ones on the market in which user data has never been forcibly extracted.1
Upgrading the IT infrastructure is a key part of ANGKASA's digital transformation of the organization's two data centers into software-defined facilities. Under the agreement, Unisys will create new development and disaster recovery environments, and replace manual backup processes with automated data replication between the sites to reduce recovery time significantly.
"Unisys enables ANGKASA to retain and expand its member base and provide an optimal user experience for constituents and their customers," said Richard Parker, vice president, financial services, Unisys Asia Pacific. "Our common goal is to strengthen ANGKASA's position as a leader in service to cooperatives while providing a secure, flexible platform that can adapt quickly to changing member and customer requirements. Other organizations providing financial services can follow that model to deliver expanded, always-on services across multiple devices for an optimal customer experience."
