Unisys Corp. and Fiserv Inc. are joining forces to create network integration solutions for Fiserv's software and service centers.
Fiserv, which has 5,000 bank customers, is to use Unisys' national network to supply networking and support services. Terms of the transaction were not announced.
Fiserv of Brookfield, Wis., develops and installs software for financial institutions' local and wide-area networks. Fiserv is to transfer its integration solutions business unit to Unisys.
"Our clients, without question, are the real beneficiaries in this alliance," said Leslie M. Muma, Fiserv vice chairman, president, and chief operating officer. "Unisys is a recognized leader in providing consistent, high-quality integrated networking service. Our previous business relationship with Unisys (the past 35 years) has been beneficial to our company as well as to our clients."
