Financial institutions need to provide Balance Reporting information to meet client and counterparty requirements in the most cost effective and flexible manner. Its aim is to provide greater levels of reporting transparency and higher degree of quality control.
e2gen’s Balance Reporting (BR) provides a flexible and format independent solution. BR allows for the automated production of customised SWIFT statements from both client and counterparty information held within the institutions one or more back office systems. End of day and intraday statements can be formatted to meet you and your counterparty’s requirements.
The messages are automatically created and delivered to the SWIFT device, third party cash reconciliation systems, electronic banking interfaces or any other configured delivery methods.
BR installs on the IBM iSeries to provide a high performance, resilient and a fully scalable processing solution. Standard integration with popular back office solutions include:
· OLYMPIC Banking System
These standard interfaces allow rapid deployment and excellent return on investment. Unix and Proprietary systems are also supported.
· SWIFT compliant standards
· Comprehensive Compliance & Audit
· Intraday reporting
· End of day statements
· Statement on demand processing
· Configurable event based reporting
· Configurable content
· Account validation
· Re transmit statements
· Bespoke formats supported
· Multi-currency, multi entity & multi branch
· Exception Processing and Notifications
· Configurable Message Release
· On line archive
BR can be configured to format specific information from the back office system either globally or customized for certain accounts.
This includes the ability to report on the current available and multiple forward available balances, suppressing forward valued entries if required.
Production of statements can be suppressed if no movements have occurred. Production frequency can also be configured to fulfill individual customer requirements.
Any characters extracted from the back office systems that are invalid for the delivery interface are automatically translated to the alternative that has been configured for that channel. This is especially important for countries that have accented character sets that are not valid for the SWIFT network.
SWIFT statement messages are currently supported;
Statement on demand
Balance only intraday
Interim transaction report
Statements on demand
The receipt of an MT920 statement request from a specific counterparty can automatically trigger the formatting and release of the statement type requested.
The ability to configure duplicate statements to be sent to one or more alternative destinations and delivery channels can also be configured for specific accounts.
Statements release is typically automatic. Alternatively, manual release can be configured.
On-line Addressing Database
BR can incorporate any industry standard addressing databases, including SWIFT BIC+, and your own proprietary client delivery addresses. BR will automatically format and route the balance reporting messages to the correct delivery channel on production (e.g. SWIFT or electronic banking counterparty addresses etc).
BR provides an exception processing environment; workflows are continually monitored for any exceptions with specific users notified immediately. Notifications are via the e2gen user desktop or email.
Monitoring of SWIFT delivery status messages (ACK and NAK monitoring) is provided and users will be automatically notified if the SWIFT network rejects a statement allowing users to investigate, repair and retransmit the statement.
Statements are saved in an online archive providing a complete history of statement production. Statements are linked to account details to allow resolution of client enquiries. Copy statements can be re-transmitted if required.
This history also highlights inconsistencies between the opening and closing balances on consecutive statements.
