Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 and above
Back End Integration Server
This module is responsible for translating biller data file , byte for byte, into
the data fields required for the database. The information parser component interfaces
with the biller's existing billing system. The parser extracts the relevant billing
information from the legacy billing systems data formats, including fixed length,
data tagged, Xerox Line Mode or other file formats. The key point is that the billing
information for electronic bill presentment is taken directly from the biller's
existing format, the biller does not need to make any upgrades or changes. The core
technology is custom middleware, developed with Visual Studio.
The application server takes care of the business logic, data storing and archiving,
marketing tools, payment gateways etc.
The application server stores the information in three proprietary databases. Database
platform used is MSSQL. The solution has database dedicated to online-data, usage
data, historical data.
The presentation server, which displays bill data to the customer, is IIS web server.
It supports HTML, XML and Email Display options.
The eBiller design uses SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption for security. This
is the standard security measure used for the most secure data transfers over the
web, based on public key/private key encryption technology.
Information Analysis Tools
These components operate on the e-Biller database to provide clients with detailed
reports on their online customers, so that the data can be aggregated and analyzed
to provide valuable marketing and payment analysis information to e-Biller clients.
These reports can be customized to client needs. Beside, the system provides real-time
reporting features and drilled down reports along with adhoc reportings.
