Use case 1 - Customer accounts sync

Customer account sync enables a 360 view of your customer’s financial information. It delivers accurate account balance data and transaction history to enable your tellers and support representatives to effectively engage with customers.

Overview

Customer accounts sync views

This use case leverages Salesforce Financial Services Cloud as the system of engagement and FIS as the core banking platform. The APIs and templates enable you to accelerate time to value. Use the assets as they are, or extend them to suit the needs of your own organization. For example, you can reuse the APIs provided to expose data to additional channels, such as mobile applications, and consumers.

Description

The use case covered in this version of the solution allows for the display of a customer’s financial summary from multiple systems. There are two views supported in this solution:

  1. Customer view
  2. Customer Service Representative (CSR) view

Solution overview

The purpose of this solution is to get a holistic view of the financial summary of the customer, either from a mobile application or from Salesforce Financial Services Cloud. While the assets built for this solution will be relevant for many different banking and financial industries, we will focus specifically on Retail Banking to ensure we are building and testing against a set of real use cases.

Before you begin

bulb.png The Accelerators setup guide provides general information on getting started with the accelerator components. This includes instructions on setting up your local workstation for configuring and deploying the applications.

Goals

  • Support for viewing Demand Deposit accounts associated with a customer (e.g., savings and checking) from FIS and FSC.
  • Support for viewing credit card information associated with a customer.
  • Orchestrate controlled updates from FIS to FSC and the Credit Card system.

Use case considerations

  • Must support a comprehensive view of Accounts for a given customer.
  • Must be able to retrieve transactions for a given account.
  • Must provide support for a customer to dispute a transaction.

Technical considerations

  • Use CIM as the canonical model, where applicable (e.g., for Customers).
  • A canonical model for banking accounts will be created.

Business requirements

  1. Synchronize data from FIS to FSC.
  2. View the account information of a customer related to bank accounts and credit cards in FSC.
  3. Dispute a transaction.
  4. Resolve a disputed transaction.

Technical constraints

  1. We currently have only read access to the FIS Global system.
  2. FIS must be polled to pick up changes to customer and account information.
  3. FIS does not support querying customers and accounts by date ranges.
  4. The customer is only able to view the banking summary and credit card information.
  5. With this release, the CSR may change data in FSC but this will not be synced back to FIS.
  6. A generic MySQL database will be used as the credit card back-end.
