Cost Reduction Features

BankMillTMoffers the lowest total cost of ownership and operations compared to any other CBS available in the market. This has been made possible by incorporating the following features:

  • All  the modules in the system are 100% integrated with each other. There is no movement of files and no manual processes are needed to accomplish inter-module transactions. All inter-module and inter-branch transactions happen in true real time.
  • Applet and browser based architecture implies that only required data can be sent between the client and the server. This data is compressed leading to further lowering of bandwidth requirements. Typically a bank requires no more than 64 Kbps bandwidth between the branch and the data center.
  • Since we use Applets we can encrypt and decrypt the data at the client end. This removes the requirement to have IIIrd party security layer such as VeriSign leading to large annual savings in IIIrd party software licenses.
  • Since the software is browser based, the software and subsequent patches get loaded automatically from the application server. It does not have to be loaded manually on each node individually leading to large savings in administration costs and safety by ensuring that all nodes are running the same software.  
  • Reports are available in Java which implies the bank does not have to invest in IIIrd party reporting tool licensing.

Security Features

  • Audit Trails: Audit trail of each transaction in the system is kept with date, time and user-id stamp.
  • 3DES Encryption: All data between a device and the backend is transmitted after encrypting it with industry standard 3DES encryption. This prevents any snoopers to sniff the channel and get financial data information.
  • Md5 Encryption: All passwords are kept using industry standard MD5 encryption. This prevents the administrator from knowing the passwords of any user.
  • Data Security: Data is kept secure using database login and password
  • Access Security: By Role and Rights explained more in Administration Features

  • Masters, Control Values and other Parameters: : High level of parameterization available Service Outlet Concept: Each branch or delivery channel is designated as a service outlet and each transaction can be tracked at a service outlet level.

  • MindConnect™: Allows the bank to provide financial transaction access to IIIrd party solutions such as ATMs and Credit Card Institutes such as MasterCard and Visa.
  • Multi Lingual
  • Roles and Rights: A bank can create various roles (designations) based on its Organization Chart and associate view, create, modify and delete rights on each screen as well as access to the screen itself.
