Importing data from the various banks is done with a dedicated module that appears as a separate application on the TF Taskbar. This module needs to be installed and initially configured by TaskForce Systems Ltd staff. At present we have conduits written to interface with Barclays Bank Plc (iceB), Deutsche Bank (Presto), Investec Guernsey and The Royal Bank of Scotland International (eQ).
The module is very simple to use as it undertands the “Signature” of the files provided by each bank, and takes the necessary action to decode them.
Transactions are imported in their raw form into a separate database, this enables us to maintain a log and audit trail of all transactions and balances that fail to process for any reason. These can be monitored from within the interface module. Failed transactions can be reprocessed once an account is properly linked.
