NeoLink is fully adapted to the parameters of a modern touch-screen. It is accessible from the home page of the ‘ http://securities-services.bnpparibas.com ' site. The latest version of the site was launched in July 2010 and is also compatible with iPad. The level of security and data protection is identical to that obtained when accessing the site from a PC.
BNP Paribas Securities Services also uses this new technology in its business approach, providing its sales teams with iPads for all documentation. This ensures automatic updates and reduced paper consumption, in line with the BNP Paribas corporate social and environmental responsibility policy.
