According to Ares implementation consultants, in the early days, the declaration of banks was completed by manual operations, which consumed manpower and tended to be corrected by supervisory authority. Now many banks mostly purchase related reports systems or customize relevant reports, but if the service providers cannot possess both capabilities of system research and development, as well as regulation judgments, the reports generated by them still need much manual amendment, which means mistakes would easily increase when declaration personnel change occurs. More, once its producing process lacks the traces for audition, more risks and burdens would weight the operations of oversee branches. Ares has been experienced in serving banks in Hong Kong, so when helping the Hong Kong branch of O-Bank implement ARES Nuntio system, it especially focused on tracing and examining the related figures to hugely decrease the cost of report verification in which declaration staff might invest after generating reports.

Ares implementation consult Joy Li also mentioned that Ares imports its designed reporting logic following regulations and related parameters confirmed by clients into interface files generated by bank’s core systems; then ARES Nuntio can work well on generating reports. The system not only approves users of editing the amount declared before but retains the complete history of editing for reviews. Besides, any conclusion reached between banking staff and Ares implementation consultants will be kept on the platform and made public for users to reduce the dependence on specific staff.

Ares will proceed to add the sources of early verified information and the feature of cross-sheet examination to ARES Nuntio. In the meantime of producing reports, declaration staff were notified the reported items needed to be checked or items influenced by specific source data adjustments to make bank declaration smoother!

The predecessor of O-Bank was Industrial Bank of Taiwan, the first new industrial bank founded in 1999 serve with its core values of integrity, profession, team spirit, creativity, and honor to provide professional services of investment banks and all-round financial management. In early 2017, it was officially reorganized and renamed O-Bank, entering personal financial management and providing consumers with a brand new experience by its digital financial service in a convenient, safe, and caring way.
