The Central Database Inquiry System (CDIS) is software module that allows multiple locations to access a central database of customers. These inquires are done in real-time via the internet. When a customer is attempting to process a transaction, your staff will immediately know if they have done business at another location and if so, their status. This prevents multiple loans or cashing multiple bad checks for the same customer. The system not only tracks customer activity, it also tracks check maker activity. If you cash a bad payroll check from an employer, all of your other locations will be alerted. High speed internet connection is required.
This software module is designed to allow customer checks processed at all company locations to be audited from a central location. Utilizing the check image and check data provided to the Home Office from a Magtek check imager, you can review and audit checks from locations within minutes of being processed. This will save time, deter employee theft, and ensure consistency.
You establish the criteria used during the audit and determine what is acceptable and what is not. The system generates exception reports that may be shared with auditors in the field to investigate onsite if needed. Did someone visually audit every check processed in your company yesterday? How long will it be before your field auditor makes it to all locations and accomplishes this task? Let the Auditor save you time and money.
