wins European tender ‘Stadsbank van Lening’ Municipality of Amsterdam

30 October 2018

The Municipality of Amsterdam has contracted for the design, development, implementation, hosting, maintenance and further development of the new pawn system for the “Stadsbank van Lening’’ (Municipal Pawnbroker). The agreement was concluded for a period of four years, with the possibility of six extensions of two years.

Ready for the future

The Stadsbank van Lening uses a pawn system to carry out the pawning process. Through a European tender, the Municipality of Amsterdam sought the party with the best price-quality ratio in terms of factors like the project team, project implementation and further development of the eligibility system; came out on top.

The Stadsbank van Lening pawning process is aimed at offering favourable conditions to its customers and differs significantly from commercial pawnbrokers. Because various parts the current lending system are in need of replacement, this assignment will involve a redevelopment of the system whereby the Stadsbank van Lening will be ready for further development in the future, to be able to help its customers even better.

Bob Paulussen, director Stadsbank van Lening: "We are very happy that will be delivering our new pawning system. It is a crucial system for our organisation, the backbone of our service to our customers. I look forward to all the innovations and improvements we can make in this system, so that our appraisers are better supported in doing their work. Always with the aim of improving our service to our customers – the people of Amsterdam – at the counter."
