SmartVista is also integrated with CFT processing applications
BPC, a provider of e-payment and retail banking solutions, has implemented its SmartVista processing software at CardStandard, a Russian processing centre which is part of CFT.
To support its development strategy CardStandard implemented the functional processing based on SmartVista’s front-end switching system, back-office card and merchant management system and CardGen for card production which performs the complete range of Visa cards operations. Further development of CardStandard includes SmartVista certification by the MasterCard payment scheme, according to BPC.
Within the project, SmartVista was integrated with CardStandard’s settlement bank, UralSib, to provide the interaction among all the participants of the payment chain.
To ensure smooth business migration to the new IT platform and quality support of co-branding card programmes, SmartVista was also integrated with CFT processing applications which will be further used to manage cards of the Zolotaya Korona local payment scheme, said BPC.
The implementation of the modern processing application based on SmartVista software products enabled CardStandard to considerably expand its functionality in the area of customer servicing via ATMs, allowing it to introduce new payment services available in the self-service mode.
The enhanced services have been accomplished using the new SMS notification function supported with the notification module, SmartVista SMS-gateway, integrated with CFT’s mobile bank functionality which together allowed for enriching CFT’s possibilities for informing customers about their accounts changes via mobile phones and originate messages on ATM failures.
