Few technology decisions impact your customers as much as your teller automation system. 21CFS totalTELLER is a comprehensive, fully functional and user friendly teller transaction system that is open and flexible so your system will work exactly the way you want it to work.

For your bank’s compliance reporting, BSA Navigator monitors cash transactions across your network in real-time and prompts tellers to collect accurate identification at the time the transaction occurs. This takes less than 20 seconds of the teller’s time for an existing customer. BSA Navigator then aggregates data on reportable transactions to a central site and pre-fills CTR forms to expedite accurate and timely reporting. All data is available to your compliance officer for review, reporting and filing. When examiners arrive, they can audit your paper records or review the data electronically through BSA Navigator. An OFAC look up feature is also part of the system.

With our solution, you will reduce the time and expense associated with traditional check proof and imaging operations.

Compliance Solutions

Banking Compliance Solutions to Fit Your Needs

Your bank holds critical personal information that cyber-attackers want from bank accounts, home addresses and social security numbers. All this personal data can be breached if proper network security controls are not in place. Established by the GLBA , banks are required to keep customer information safe, confidential and not be accessible by unauthorized users, such as cyber-attackers, which require constant monitoring.

21CFS keeps your bank in compliance. This includes a very sophisticated search engine built into the 21CFS totalTELLER solution for BSA and AML compliance as well as CTR reporting.

All solutions offered by 21CFS have been vetted for GLBA compliance and 21CFS goes through annual audits for controls affecting financial statements (SSAE16 SOC1 type2, formerly SAS70), IT Controls, GLBA compliance and the IT FFIEC examination by the banking regulatory agencies. You can obtain the results of the FFIEC Exam by contacting your FDIC representative.

Compliance for disclosure is provided by 21CFS partners that help you open new accounts for both deposits and loans. OFAC checking is performed by both the new account opening function, the ACH creations function as well as a monthly review of the entire customer data base. With 21CFS, you can rest assured that your compliance is in good hands.
