Oasis Technology Ltd. said Carte Bleue, the French Visa organization, has begun using Oasis' IST/Switch system for card authorizations.
The Oasis electronic commerce software was chosen for an upgrade project, France Visa Access Point 1998, which took four months to implement.
Visa recommended the Oasis system as well suited for national processing systems such as Carte Bleue, said Ashraf Dimitri, the Canadian vendor's president and chief executive officer.
Antoine Sautereau, head of Carte Bleue's information systems and support division, said the organization met or exceeded all its project goals.
"We attribute much of that success to the quality of the products and the strong commitment from our three key suppliers, Oasis Technology, Sun Microsystems, and ATOS Group," he said.
MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Bank of Montreal, Citibank, Diners Club, and Golden Card of China are Oasis customers.
