Important changes to your reporting file

Important changes to your reporting file
We are replacing our current EMIS files with a new enhanced reporting suite, the Data Analytics Reconciliation Tool (DART).

As part of the New Acquiring Platform (NAP) project, our engineering and design team have engaged closely with a pilot group of customers to review migrating EMIS reporting files onto NAP.

The results have shown that it is not technically viable to manipulate EMIS files into a suitable and recognisable format for use within NAP. We have therefore come to the decision to move away from EMIS as a data set and deliver a new Data Analytics Reconciliation Tool (DART) that will service your full end-to-end reconciliation needs.

We are confident that this change is in the best interests of all our customers to allow full end-to-end reconciliation and future enhancements. It has also given us the opportunity to enhance the data sets, using customer feedback on data requirements to enable enriched data and easier reconciliation.

Benefits of DART
  • Moving to a .csv file format lets us enhance and change data in line with new products or scheme mandates
  • Moving our data to a seven day a week platform allows us to clear to schemes daily and invest in international settlement times in the future
  • The new data supports new level hierarchies so the DART data files can be used at any level in the hierarchy- this feature was previously restricted with EMIS
  • The new files allow us to add data elements, such as full chargeback lifecycle, ARNs, MCCs and TID information, all of which have been items missing from EMIS

Can I still use EMIS?

EMIS is connected to our legacy acquiring platform and therefore will not show your transactional and reconciliation information after 25 October 2019.

For customers using the NOVA 505 and invoice file data, there will be a period of time when data will be populated and transferred across to DART in line with any chargeback that occurs. Customers using Chargeback and Fraud data will have to dual operate EMIS and DART. This is in line with the Scheme rules that specify when a chargeback can be raised after the original transaction date. 

To continue to provide data reconciliation after 25 October you must code to the DART files, which we will start sending from 25 October 2019. If the data you currently pick up is available in Pazien (see below table) then you can use the portal rather than making any coding changes.

The only file that doesn’t require a change is the EMIS BIN file, which we’ll continue to send you in the same way and in the same format.

What new files are available?

We have created nine new DART files to replace the full suite of EMIS files, and we will provide the files that match your current EMIS data set. These will be in a human readable format but if you would like the system readable versions, please contact your Customer Support Manager or Relationship Manager.
