Hyper Automation – Dispute Resolutions and Reconciliation (Read Detailed Case Study)

Use case details : Design, Developed and Launched a real-time automation platform to handle ~100000 ATM cash withdrawal/deposit related customers complains per month, they are raised as a dispute by the bank and MSP and gets passed on to CMS for resolution.

SLA required to resolve or reconcile the dispute within a very strict turnaround time (TAT) and respond to MSPs with a resolution along with ‘Acceptance or Rejection’ of the claim. Given the installation base , volume of the disputes (around 10K per day) received every day is very high and it consumes lot of resources and manpower for keeping up with the stringent deadlines.

The bulk of the disputes comes via email with various attachments in zip files. Each email typically consists of anywhere between 20-450 disputes in a table. Also attached are the EJ files (log files from ATM machine).

Earlier it was a very tedious and manual process to read every email , download the zip files , unpack and open each EJ file to map it with the dispute in the table. After the disputes were matched with the EJ files then the user needed to look up the errors within EJ for that disputed transaction manually log into the CMS Connect app to resolve the dispute as per the Rule Book and create a ticket in the RMS portal. With RMS Automation system the all the above tasks are fully automated using three modules Email Bot , Ticket Bot and Rule Engine. All the three modules are offered as independent services

Email Bot : Reads emails received from MSP, unpacks the attachments and EJ files , does the preliminary validations and hands it over to Ticket Bot

Ticket Bot : Reads the disputes , validates all the relevant fields , maps the EJ files against the dispute, Prepares the tickets and the batch for the given email and calls the REST API of RMS ticketing platform to automatically create the tickets.

Ticketing Platform : Provides API to create and update tickets and invokes the Rule engine as per the workflow.

Rule Engine : This module exposes REST API where it can process tickets and automatically resolve the disputes according to Rules specified in the Rule book. The rule execution depends on reading and interpreting the various EJ files , extracting the relevant information and interpreting it and then applying the rules. It prints the Justification log along with the resolution of whether the claim should be accepted or rejected. If it encounters a more complicated condition where it’s not able to apply any rule it then marks the case for the manual intervention and the ticketing platform then automatically routes it to the appropriate user.
