Network Controls International, Inc. (NCI) will demo the Virtual Banking channel of NCI Business Centre, an innovative, browser-based retail delivery solution suite that takes full advantage of Internet/Intranet technology, at BAI Retail Delivery ’98 in Las Vegas.
An enterprise-wide solution designed for the financial services industry, NCI Business Centre provides banking automation for all delivery channels using on a single technology.
The Virtual Banking channel, the Internet banking component of NCI Business Centre, provides support for smart card technology for delivery to Internet-connected PCs, kiosks, web TVs and personal digital assistants.
“We’ll demo the smart card function of our sample home banking application from the NCI Business Centre’s Virtual Banking channel, providing transfer of funds to and from the smart card.
“We will also demo live Internet banking functions, such as transferring funds between accounts and accessing an EFT authorization system installed in Albany, New York, using the TPII product from our parent company, IFS International,” says Per Olof Ezelius, NCI president and CEO.
The smart card demo will show how a banking customer inserts a stored value card (SVC) and transfers money to and from the card, crediting and debiting selected customer accounts.
The Virtual Banking channel also provides the standard functions provided by Internet banking channels, such as the ability to view balances, pay bills, execute transactions and balance their checkbooks 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
NCI Business Centre makes use of the most powerful network and database technology available, such as Windows NT Server, Windows NT/95/98 clients, browser-based delivery, Internet/Intranet protocol (TCP/IP) and a centralized Oracle database.
NCI Business Centre has been designed as a server-centric solution that automates all delivery channels, including Marketing, Branch (teller, platform and back office), Call Center, Kiosks and Virtual Banking (those banking services available to customers through Internet access) based on a single technology.
This server-centric design permits easy scaling and configuring of the system throughout the enterprise. Furthermore, it provides superior operational advantages in maintaining and supporting the system at a fraction of the cost compared with traditional systems.
This new offering by NCI will complement a bank’s existing core banking host systems, such as Alltel Systematics, Hogan, Jack Henry, Fiserv, and EDS Newtrend Miser2.
