Fiserv Wins 2012 Microsoft Alliance ISV Industry Partner Of The Year Award In The Financial Services Sector

Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, has won the Microsoft Alliance ISV Partner of the Year Award in the Financial Services Sector. In July, Fiserv was also selected as a finalist for the overall Alliance ISV Industry Partner of the Year Award, chosen from among thousands of partners. The Microsoft Partner Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.

“Our relationship with Microsoft is a key strength in a number of solutions that we provide, helping us work to improve customer experience, streamline operations and drive revenue for our clients,” said Michael Gianoni, Group President of Financial Institutions, Fiserv. “We highly value this alliance and are honored to be recognized as the financial services sector partner of the year as well as a top finalist for partner of the year.”

Microsoft Corp. is a broad Fiserv partner supporting solutions across the financial enterprise, including account processing, customer relationship management, channel management, online and mobile banking, lending and wealth management. Solutions from Fiserv supported by Microsoft technologies include Advantage Fee™, AdvisorVision™, Aperio™, Common Origination Platform™, Corillian Online ®, EnAct™, Mobiliti™ and XP2 ®.

“Fiserv’s early commitment and alignment to Microsoft’s device strategy has placed it in the forefront of the partner ecosystem with recognition of its innovation. On behalf of Microsoft, I congratulate Fiserv on this award for an outstanding level of commitment and performance in delivering business value to our customers,” said Chris Colyer, senior director, Worldwide Alliances, Microsoft. “We look forward to continuing our strategic alliance and bringing world-class solutions to the global financial services industry.”

The strength of the alliance is demonstrated in a recent case study showing how one of the largest banks in the U.S. worked with Fiserv and Microsoft to ensure Corillian Online, based on Microsoft SQL Server and Windows Server, had the scalability and performance to meet the bank’s mission critical workloads and support its growth in the online banking channel.

“As digital banking evolves, more consumers are adopting digital channels and more complex transactions are being conducted in these channels, resulting in a need to ensure your solutions can scale and deliver a great user experience,” said Erich Litch, president, Digital Channels, Fiserv. “Leveraging Microsoft technology, we have proven that Corillian Online can easily support the heavy loads of data and transactions for one of the largest banks in the country. This type of scale and performance will help our clients succeed and differentiate themselves in their digital channel efforts.”
