JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jul 14, 2011—FIS(TM), the world’s largest provider of banking and payments     technology, today announced that Amalgamated Bank of Chicago has signed     a five-year agreement for several FIS card processing and fraud     protection solutions. The bank selected FIS’ industry-leading card,      merchant and fraud technologies in order to enhance its customer     experience as well as its consumer and commercial card processing and     fraud prevention capabilities.

Since 1922, Amalgamated Bank of Chicago has been serving the union     laborers and working class members of the Chicago area and nationwide.      Amalgamated Bank selected several FIS solutions to aid in the management     of their card processing and fraud efforts, including Base2000(R),      ScoreCard(R),      FIS     card personalization and fulfillment, FIS     Secured(TM), COMPROMISE     MANAGER(TM), Merchant     Processing and Fraud     Alert Management.

FIS’ credit card processing solutions supports both consumer and     commercial accounts, including business, corporate, fleet and purchasing     cards.

ScoreCard’s Relationship Rewards improves a     financial institution’s customer loyalty and retention. With FIS’ full     suite of card and fraud solutions, Amalgamated Bank will enhance its     ability to provide personalized card services and bring new financial     solutions to market quickly.

FIS Fraud Alert Management is a comprehensive fraud management platform     that features the ability to adapt intuitively as new card and merchant     data models are added. A unique attribute of the solution is its ability     to synthesize credit, debit and prepaid transactions on the same     platform, significantly improving accuracy through the monitoring of     multiple types of cards. FIS Secured is a fraud protection program that     leverages proprietary analytical tools and enhanced data mining to     identify emerging fraud patterns and potential points of compromise to     stop fraud runs before they occur. With the addition of these solutions,      Amalgamated Bank will be able to identify potential fraudulent trends     and activity before it occurs while minimizing the overall impact to     legitimate cardholder spending.

“FIS’ card and merchant processing, as well as fraud solutions will     bring us to a new level of efficiency. The combination of increased     system flexibility, robust functionality and improved cardholder     experience were all key differentiators for us,” said Jonathan Telzrow,      senior vice president, Amalgamated Bank of Chicago.
