Because of its flexibility and open architecture, which incorporates standard Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), ACAPS Enterprise plays an integral role as an enterprise-wide solution for management of the originations life-cycle. Work profile ACAPS/BL:

Maintenance and Development

Couple of banks use our banking products and whenever they face any kind of issue with the product they report it to the customer support team which inturn opens a ticket and passes the information to the maintenance team. The main challenge faced here is to re-create the issue reported as the client would be most often using a customized version of the product, so before fixing the defect we need to isolate the issue to be either a product or customization issue. As part of maintenance we have to also make sure US regulation changes are provided to banks on time. Worked on two regulation changes each involving modifying around 140-170 modules as well as creating new CICS screen program. Brought in better work flow and communication process which ensured proper hand- shake of task as we had members working from India(Mumbai and Bangalore),US( Virginia, Pittsburgh and Sarasota) and sometimes even from Canada-Toronto office. Introduced Approach document and checklist concept at task level to get the project on track. For these efforts was awarded the On-the-spot award as it helped in increasing the delivery rate tremendously as well as decrease the iteration level of defects

.

Used HTML to create a knowledge portal site for building product knowledge in the team. Used the portal site to also document repetitive task like-'Adding of new Score Model' so that any new resource could complete such task without any kind of hand- holding.
