This poster is aimed at business customers and prospects. One sees a team in a meeting and a Minitel in service on the desk. BNP promotes its remote services on Minitel.
Between 1960 and 1980, telecommunications, information technology and television underwent major developments: telephone networks expanded and computers became more commonplace. Connecting these information processing components gave rise to the videotex technique. This process combines the telephone network’s ability to send and dialogue, computers’ processing and memory capabilities and the image provided by screens.
BNP was able to develop at home banking and remote banking solutions based on these new technologies. In the wake of the Minitel release in 1983, BNP offered the interactive Telebanking B service to its professional customers. This way it met their need to manage their cash flow in real time. Next, the Telebanking B service spread quickly to BNP’s retail customers, going so far as to promote the initiation into telebanking and personal computers through competitions organised by the Microtel Clubs.
