HNC Software Inc. announced a strategic alliance with PaySys International Inc., a leading credit card software supplier.

The deal includes development of standard interfaces that would lower the costs of combining HNC's Falcon and ProfitMax systems with Atlanta- based PaySys' VisionPlus, which is deployed by major card issuers around the world.

The HNC products use neural network technology to analyze and predict fraud, credit risk, bankruptcy, customer attrition, and profitability.

"PaySys is a world-renowned software provider for the credit card industry, and VisionPlus is well designed to meet the processing needs of an international customer base," said Michael Thiemann, president of San Diego-based HNC's financial solutions unit.
