Komerční banka will publish a list of its branches and ATMs in Centrum Holdings' online maps. In the aMapy.cz application, Internet users will find a complete overview of the places at which Komerční banka's services can be used. Komerční banka has worked with FG Forrest and Centrum Holdings on this data integration project.

Komerční banka's clients will therefore have much easier access to information. They will find the details about the nearest ATM and branch, including its opening hours, together with their GPS coordinates on the web in yet another form. They will have access to details about not only Komerční banka's ATMs as frequently as today's regular Internet users are searching in maps.

Data integration into the aMapy.cz system is based on a proven fact. An overwhelming majority of Internet users use active map tools when looking for a route or a specific place.

"We regard searching at aMapy.cz as an alternative to the Branch and ATM Search Engine integrated in KB's website, which is provided to a broader portfolio of users. In co-operation with our partners, we have processed it into the form of automated data transmission, mainly for the purpose of always providing the most current data via information channels," explains David Horák, webmaster at Komerční banka.

Easy, fast and reliable communication in the direction towards clients is one of Komerční banka's basic preconditions for its mutual relationships [with clients]. The bank is therefore constantly seeking new opportunities for make this communication more effective. Komerční banka has therefore decided to publish the details needed by its clients at aMapy.cz, thereby providing them with comprehensible information on where and when they can use the services of their bank's branch in the Czech Republic.

This service is primarily intended for Komerční banka's clients; secondarily, it can, naturally, also be used by other banks' clients to find information about an accessible and suitable place for cash withdrawal.
