  • Analyze the range of tasks relating to Realtime, the operating system and the database that operators and administrators need to perform regularly to keep Realtime functioning optimally
  • Identify which tools to use and how best to use them when troubleshooting a Postilion Payments System


Module 3 - Authorization Services

This module gives an overview of PostCard. PostCard is a card management product. A card management system forms part of any Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) suite of products. We will look at the range of services that PostCard provides including card production, PIN management, card activation and authorization of transactions. This module is divided into three topics. Firstly, we are going to outline the functionality provided by PostCard, its architecture and how it integrates with the Postilion Payment System. Next, we will introduce the Portal as PostCard's user interface, including logging on and finding cards, accounts and customers. Finally, we are going to describe how transactions can be processed by imposing certain restrictions on them.

At the end of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Understand the function of Transaction Manager
  • Make configuration changes to the Payment Switch
  • Identify tasks that should be performed regularly to keep the system performing optimally
  • Troubleshoot the Postilion Payment Switch


Module 4 - Extract Data

This module is going to give you an overview of the back-office processing system - Office. Postilion Office supplies the back-office functionality needed to complement Postilion Realtime. Postilion Office offers accurate settlement processing, therefore updating account records and payment functionality via ACH, report generation and publication, data extraction and transaction reconciliation. We also look at the Office Framework and how the Office application copies transactions from the Realtime server and how to query transactions.

This module consists of three topics. Firstly, we look at extracting data and will show you the Office component used to extract the data into files or output devices. Next we will show you the Office component that allows for reconciling transactions with external entities and finally, we will look at the Office component used to export reports of transactions from the Office Database into different predetermined formats.

At the end of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Understand the Back-Office Processing System - Office
  • Identify the Back-Office functionality that is needed to complement the Postilion Realtime environment
  • Understand the report generation and publication, data extraction, transaction reconciliation and settlement processing capabilities of Postilion Office


Module 5 - ATMAPP Features

In the final module, we will look at terminal-driving source interfaces for ATM driving and transaction processing, with focus on ATMApp. This module has two topics. Firstly, we are going to look at the key features of ATMApp and then we will look at the functionality provided by ATMApp and taking the ATM into service.

At the end of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Explain the software and data that is loaded onto an ATM
  • Identify ATM connection methods with Realtime
  • Identify different types of messages sent to or originating from an ATM
