Projects

A regional central bank sponsored an initiative to implement an Automated Clearing House (ACH) system for use by the commercial banks for the clearing and settlement of inter-bank cheques and electronic payments. The ACH project involved very large number of stakeholders spread over different territories and a system that required extensive testing to validate that its configuration met the business requirements.


Northpoint provided a Project Manager with refined stakeholder management skills and great ICT experience to support the lead consultants on the project (Prism Services). Northpoint’s PM, leading the Prism project organization, drove the implementation to completion while making sure that the associated risks for the regional payment system were minimized when the commercial banks migrated their cheque processing operations to the production ACH.

Paul Barnes, a senior Northpoint consultant provided invaluable project management leadership to the ACH project team and his support contributed in a significant way towards Prism’s successful rollout of the project. Beyond his project management competence, he also brought to the team strategic stakeholder management skills (vital in a project where so many separate interests had to be considered); deep technical proficiency (critical to the development and execution of the system test plan) highly-polished communication and documentation skills as well as a calm and positive approach to problem resolution, which often helped to keep order when otherwise chaos could easily have prevailed. I would have no hesitation recommending Paul and his Northpoint colleagues or working with them on future projects, they exceeded expectations.   Tony Del Castilho General Manager, Prism Financial Processing Services Ltd.
