Enterprise Configuration Utility (ECU)
A robust Configuration Management component is included to facilitate selection and definition of peripheral devices and their sharing relationships. The Branch Device Enterprise Configuration Utility (or ECU) allows each branch workstation to configure the specific devices attached to that station and to set the sharing rights that should be enabled. ECU includes device specific configuration as needed to allow the systems administrator to match the requirements of the deployed branch automation solution.
To configure a teller station and the devices attached to the station, first the type of device is selected from the device icon list (document printers, validation/receipt printers, magnetic stripe readers/writers, PIN Pads, cash dispensers, text terminal units, etc.) and then the specific manufacturer device model is selected. Communication settings and any particular device specific information can then be set in the dialog for that device. Sharing of the device can also be indicated at this point.
Additional CDM administrative, cash unit setup and bill mix configuration utilities are included that work with the XFS Service Providers of the supported CDM’s to manage cash replenishment and CDM usage and supply status.
