WiZink utiliza el conocimiento de la plataforma de transición de Savantor para la migración de los porfolios de tarjetas adquiridos a Barclays en España y Portugal

Thursday, 28 June 2018

Savantor, una empresa especializada en facilitar conocimiento estratégico, de negocio y tecnológico a la industria de medios de pago y banca, ha tenido un papel clave en la migración de tarjetas llevada a cabo por WiZink, el banco especializado en soluciones sencillas de crédito y ahorro. 

Tras la compra de los portfolios de tarjetas de España y Portugal de Barclaycard, WiZink afrontó el reto de llevar a cabo una migración simultánea en los dos países. El banco seleccionó a Savantor como proveedor principal de experiencia y conocimiento de plataformas de migración y transición operativa. Savantor movilizó un gran equipo de expertos nacionales e internacionales para complementar el equipo de WiZink. Una prioridad básica de Savantor fue centrarse en alcanzar una entrega a tiempo al mismo tiempo que económicamente rentable.

Gracias al conocimiento de Savantor en el área de las migraciones de tarjetas, WiZink logró con éxito una migración plurinacional, de forma fluida y sin impacto alguno en los clientes, ni antes ni después de la migración. Savantor aportó todos los jefes de equipo y de PMO para dar apoyo al Director del Proyecto en el establecimiento del marco de referencia y facilitó el conocimiento necesario para llevar adelante el programa. Savantor también aportó un número elevado de expertos en migraciones, que cubrían áreas tales como Diseño de la Arquitectura, Planificación del Proyecto, Análisis de Negocio, Preparación Operativa, Migración de Datos, Infraestructura, Entrega, Gestión de Proveedores, Gestión de Pruebas, así como Ejecución.

Ricardo Gómez, COO de WiZink, ha comentado, “Esta migración tan compleja, llevada a cabo de forma simultánea en España y Portugal, ha sido todo un éxito. Savantor nos ha dado un gran apoyo durante 3 años, tanto en el proyecto de transformación de nuestro negocio como ahora con esta doble migración y agradecemos su dedicación, conocimiento y enfoque de negocio.” 

Geoff Durham, Director Ejecutivo de Savantor ha comentado, “estamos encantados de que WiZink haya escogido a Savantor como principal proveedor de especialistas en migraciones en este desafiante proyecto. Queremos felicitar a los gestores de WiZink y a la Directora del Proyecto, Trish Hemsworth, por haber logrado esta transición fluida en un proyecto tan complejo como este.”
