Slovenská Sporitel’na, a. s., (SLSP) is the largest financial player in Slovakia’s banking sector, managing over 39 percent of total deposits in the Slovak Republic. SLSP constitutes a fundamental part of the Austrian Erste Group Bank AG. It serves a retail banking network of 300 branches and 10 commercial centers, covering the entire Slovak Republic.
After Slovakia’s accession to the European Union in 2004, the country started to prepare for the final phase of European integration; the accession to the European Monetary Union. Driven by the aim to commence the year 2009 with the Euro and the objective to remain the strongest player on the market, SLSP turned to Capgemini for support and guidance.
During the 24 months of collaboration, Capgemini’s approach was to divide the entire program into 12 separate projects in preparation for an effective Euro changeover. Capgemini supported SLSP in areas, such as program management, business and organization coordination, contingency preparation and conversion business changeover.
With Capgemini as a trusted partner, SLSP was able to successfully deliver a smooth Euro changeover and secure the sustainability of its state-of-the-art services in 2009. In view of the challenging and complex scale and scope of the changeover project, it was crucial to ensure the full coverage of all products and client requirements, as well as mitigating potential fiscal and reputational risks.
