BISYS Adds College Savings to Retirement Services

February 25, 2004 ( - BISYS has teamed up with College Central to offer Retirement Services clients information on college savings needs.

The Web-based college funding application developed by North Carolina-based 529 Solutions enhances financial services organizations’ existing Web sites with information on education savings vehicles, including state-specific 529 college savings programs, and online planning tools that support consumers’ diverse college savings needs, according to a news release.

BISYS sees the addition as a natural extension of BISYS’ proprietary Retirement Central application, which is a, front-end solution designed to integrate with financial services organizations’ existing Web sites and provide retirement-related planning tools and educational information.   In this fashion, Christopher Guarino, president of BISYS Retirement Services, said their clients will be able to “more efficiently support consumers’ two primary savings needs with comprehensive educational resources and sophisticated planning tools further demonstrates our ability to consistently support dynamic market trends and demands with leading-edge products and services.”
