Optimising Account Processes

Wednesday, 22 May 2019 by John Rickard

One of the most time consuming operations within finPOWER Connect is Account Processes.

Of course, for most Users, this is not really of any consequence. However, for Finance Companies with tens of thousands of Accounts, the time Account Processes takes may become more critical. Therefore, we have carefully reviewed this area with a view to optimising performance.

Changes will be included in version 3.2, due to be released later in 2019.

Account Processes are generally run once a day after that day has been closed off. This is typically after Bank Transactions have been imported and committed for the previous day, i.e. on Wednesday morning Tuesday's Bank Statement is imported and transactions committed to Accounts. At this point, Account Processes would be run to create Payment Due and Standard Transactions for Wednesday and close off Tuesday, including posting Interest Transactions.

Account Processes will run through every "Open" Account and post Transactions as they fall due. This means every Account is examined.

The optimisations made in finPOWER Connect version 3.2 mean that generally an Account will not be inspected unless it needs to be.

Custom Database Indexes

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 by John Rickard

Intersoft Systems tries to ensure finPOWER Connect provides the best possible performance for the majority of its Users. However, it is impossible to pro-actively ensure every combination of usage is best catered for. Therefore, there may be instances where adding custom indexes to finPOWER Connect will further improve performance.

Note, there are always performance trade-offs when adding custom indexes. For instance, creating an index to improve performance in one area could impair performance in another, e.g. when inserting or updating data into the database.

This blog provides some rules around adding custom indexes.

This is great for keeping track of your clients, getting ahead of the collections process and giving you greater visibility over your client base. You can receive e-mail notifications on a monitored client for the following events:
