Equinox banking system is a fully integrated voice and Web enabled banking application covering Retail banking, Treasury and Trade Finance operations. It supports several external delivery channels such as ATM, Telephone/Internet Banking and Mobile Banking using (SMS/WAP). It has an enriched EIS with full support for forecasting and modelling.
Equinox key advantages lie on the regional processing functionality, which has indeed become a 'needs' requirement for high transaction volume banks and its Offline processing functionality that allows bank branches to run offline independently up to one month (branch empowerment). A typical offline feature does not support account opening and limits processing to only 3 days, but the Equinox offline processing allows full branch functionality such as; account opening, transactions posting, signature verification, etc.
