(PRWEB) August 5, 2004
This select briefing was targeted at senior management from the banks and reflecting the importance of the changes, Dibyo Raharjo, Director, Special Unit for Information Management - Bank Indonesia gave a presentation on the new LHBU requirement and the need for daily figures and collection of data, stressing that data needed to be timely, accurate and reliable.
C. Hendra Suhartanto, Managing Director, PT Cygnet Pericon, chaired the event and described how Cygnet team's strength and in-depth local knowledge of the banking industry are put to work in assisting institutions to address the new regulatory requirement and beyond.
Presentations were also given by Michael J. Thomas, Group CEO, STB Systems, Group and John Heaps, Regional Operations Manager, STB Systems Solutions Pte Ltd. Michael discussed how automation is often made more complicated than it should be which makes it more expensive and he then explained the key areas of reporting to be addressed and described how a tools based approach to product development has helped STB to address these. John gave a presentation and demonstration of STB-Reporter, the same software that supports 170+ financial institutions around the world, and demonstrated the variety of options available for LHBU automation:
- Data input for direct form entry.
- Automated data consolidation for multi-branch consolidation.
- Automated computation for Straight Through Processing (STP).
- Bank Indonesia interface file generation.
The new LHBU introduces daily reporting for the first time from March 2005, considerably increasing the difficulty of gathering accurate data in a timely manner.
The new requirements will enable Bank Indonesia to fulfil their supervisory role and to contribute to the management of the national and local economies, catching any signs of economic problems early in the cycle and avert risk to the financial system.
The introduction of STB-Reporter to the region brings a flexible approach to automation of, not just LHBU, but the full Bank Indonesia reporting requirement. The solution is suitable for the reporting of remote branches across the country or can take daily business data and fully compute the reports required by Bank Indonesia.
Automation can often be costly, especially when hard coded into bespoke computer programs that are difficult to maintain into the future. STB and Cygnet Pericon offer a cost effective solution to the requirements and also provide for potential longer term savings with reduced maintenance costs and the provision of extensive MIS reports with additional modules that may be added to the solution as the business grows.
