Cheque clearing operations migration
Midland Bank - a major UK retail bank

Description:
This was a crucial project in Midland Bank's cheque clearing operations. Midland needed to migrate the clearing infrastructure and staff from multi-site locations to the new single purpose-built facility on the South Bank. Due to stringent Bank of England controls, all clearing operations needed to be maintained - despite the need to de-commission, relocate and re-commission vital equipment. The project included the definition of operational process flows, contingency planning and hour-by-hour logistical planning for the migration.

Outcome:
The migration passed without hitch - and Midland did not default on it's clearing obligations to the Bank of England.
