The client is one of the largest commercial banks in Tanzania, providing financial services to individuals, small to medium-sized corporate customers, and large businesses. The bank currently serves two-million customers in Tanzania. With over 175 branches and 600 active ATMs, the client has a footprint in more than 95 percent of Tanzania’s districts.
The challenge: manual reconciliations were draining resources and creating risk
The client was reconciling accounts manually, which was operationally time-consuming and increased the potential for financial risk. The client sought a central point of control to improve operational efficiency and increase post-settlement transparency across all of its business lines, which would require transforming reconciliations.
The solution: automated, integrated reconciliations across business lines
We tapped into our Data Control Solutions, applying Fintech expertise, trusted advice and proven capabilities to enable the delivery of accurate, reconciled data to the client’s systems, processes and workflows across business lines. The delivered solution automates reconciliation processes and increased operational increased transparency across a variety of business lines, including mobile network operators, internal cash and suspense, ATMs, credit cards and nostros reconciliations. It was integrated with the client’s core banking system, FlexCube, so various reconciliations were easily automated. The client plans to introduce additional reconciliations to further increase the solution’s capabilities and achieve a central point of control across all departments.
