PARIS, Dec. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ingenico (Euronext: FR0000125346), leading provider of payment solutions, has been selected by T-Systems and a consortium led by CompuGroup Medical, Booz & Company and KoCo Konnector , which have both been awarded the upgrade of the health insurance system project by Gematik ("telematics infrastructure").
