Transfer Simplification project:

This involved settlement of amounts between customer accounts, internal bank accounts and other institution bank accounts. Played a significant role from requirement phase, design, build, testing and implementation phases. Worked in building complex logics required for flawless soft posting and hard posting.

Auto Pay Add Project:

Worked on automating the addition of pay from accounts in a customer's pay from account list. If an existing bank customer wants to add his second newly added account to his pay from list, he needs to call up the customer care to add the newly added account to his pay from list. Had proposed an optimized solution to automatically add his account to his pay from list which decreased the number of calls made to customer care to add the account manually. This was a value add proposed to the bank. Had got client appreciation for the same.

Safe Balance Project:

Data Remediation Project:

The project also involves synchronizing the data between the SOR, intermediate bank database & the third party Vendor for the Biller Direct and Bill pay services.
