Information Technology Investment
During 2005, Webster converted its core systems processing to the Fidelity Information Services, Inc. (Fidelity) platform, to provide information technology, application processing and item processing services under a ten-year agreement. Webster is using the new software for core data processing services, enhancing both capacity and speed for customer benefit in consumer, commercial, mortgage and small business accounts in Fidelitys application service provider environment. The migration to the new technology platform was completed in the fourth quarter of 2005. Webster recognized one-time conversion and infrastructure costs of $8.1 million in 2005.
The new system enhances sale and service delivery capabilities across Websters lines of business. Additionally, leveraging the processing capacity of Fidelitys data centers provides Webster with the ability to continue to grow and expand its customer base. Webster will also continue to build out its technology capabilities with projects such as Internet development, automated lending solutions and enhanced cash management systems.
