MONETT, Mo. (10/20/11)--ProfitStars has released an interactive dashboard for its enterprise payment solutions (EPS) clients. With the dashboard, called SmartSight, financial institutions can graphically view and drill down to member/customer, business segment, and key summary-level information. The SmartSight dashboard offers EPS clients anytime availability of data that historically has required up to several days at month-end to aggregate, ProfitStars said. Information can also be exported as reports or graphical “snapshots” for communication and additional reporting purposes throughout the institution. Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) guidance requires credit unions and banks to monitor remote deposit capture and automated clearinghouse transaction activity and risk. ProfitStars, based in Monett, Mo., provides technology solutions in financial performance, imaging and payments processing, information security and risk management, and retail delivery.
