Management: 40%
Technology: 20%
Business expertise: 40%

The aim of this project was the construction of a new autobank and core banking system for the financing of vehicles for dealers and consumers in Germany and subsequent expansion into other European countries. The bank was designed and organised with the principle of concentrating on core tasks. The operational part was outsourced to various BPO and ITO providers based on modern IaaS and SaaS concepts. The creation of bank guidelines and the definition of the bank core processes, the bank and risk management as well as the management of the outsourced parts according to KPI’s were developed together with the client. Due to the heterogeneous IT landscape, consisting of systems from various providers (best of breed), there is a high need for control and testing, which was taken over by it-economics.
