Goals of the Project

  • Acceleration of servicing the Bank’s clients – holders of plastic payment and credit cards, guarantee of trouble-free functioning of the system and reliable records storage.
 

Solution

The system of servicing CARDMAKE international payment cards was developed by PrioCom in line with the functional requirements set by Ukrsotsbank JSCB. The main features of CardMake system include centralised processing and storage of data of clients: individuals and legal entities, their emission and card contracts. The system has a duplex interface for interaction with Way4 processing system, ProFIX\Bank and SBON+ local accounting systems.

The system is designed in the three-level client-server architecture employing a thin client with a view of minimisation of the traffic between a client and the server group:

  • the Bank’s Head Office houses the data processing and storage centre;
  • the Head Office also houses a communication server for communication with Way4;
  • balance branches accommodate communication servers for communication with ProFIX\Bank and SBON + bank automation systems;
  • an agent for operation within the CardMake system is installed at user PCs;
  • all mentioned levels of the system interact with one another using TCP\IP protocol.
 

Result

The CardMake system enables the Bank’s officers to perform the full range of operations for execution, issue and subsequent servicing of payment and credit cards from remote working places:

  • input and modification of the client background information, used for printout of the required documents;
  • establishment and modification of card accounts;
  • order of basic and auxiliary cards (for the main account holder or for another person);
  • modification of the tariff package of card accounts;
  • establishment of a credit facility limit with a two-level control system;
  • extension of the card validity term;
  • reissue of damaged, lost, stolen (card of PIN code) cards;
  • establishment and removal of limitations on the amount and number of operations of cash drawing from the card;
  • card blockade and withdrawal from circulation;
  • closure of cards with or without a waiting period;
  • group establishment of clients (for salary projects);
  • group transactions with cards and card accounts;
  • replenishment of card accounts (automatic generation of entries during a banking day);

  • servicing Pozychkovyi Mizhnarodnyi product (interaction with SBON+ and banking day ProFIX\Bank systems);
  • servicing Koshyk, Kredytka, Oshchadnyi products (establishment of connection among client accounts).
