Frequently Asked Questions - Core Banking project impact on BOL

1. How will BOL be affected?

Should you make use of our Business Online (BOL) platform after we switch to the new Finacle Banking Platform, you will only be able to use your new account number which will automatically be updated for you.
There will be no impact to your user login details for BOL. Your security token remains valid as well.

2.Will my account number change?

Yes. In order to fully utilize the improved functionalities, new account numbers will be generated for all clients. Your existing account number on BOL will be updated automatically upon migration to the new Core Banking Platform which date will be advised to you.

3. How will the change affect Stanbic beneficiary setups on my BOL?

The same automatic change will apply to account numbers of BOL beneficiaries who are also Standard Bank clients (Predefine beneficiary details). Account details for these beneficiaries will be updated to the new account numbers at system change time.
However, with subsequent beneficiary setups, the beneficiary is required to provide the new account number before a transaction can be initiated.

4. Will the account balance remain the same?

Yes, there is no impact on the account balance or transactions. You can also access statements as far back as six months on BOL.


5. How will Payments be impacted?

All transactions to be created on BOL will require the new Finacle Numbers. It is therefore important that you obtain the new Finacle numbers for your beneficiaries that have accounts with Standard Bank.
File import / file upload from your Accounting / ERP or Payroll systems will only allow Finacle account numbers to be imported or uploaded. Use of the old account numbers will result in an invalid transaction.

6. How will international payments via SWIFT be affected?

All payments received via SWIFT will also reflect on the new account number. However, you will have both account numbers reflecting on the SWIFT advice sent to you. Once again we encourage you to notify your counter-parties to amend the account number.

7. How will it influence the Bank’s back-end processes with respect to transactions and how will it improve turnaround times

All transactions, including Inter-account transfers and Third Party Payments will automatically feed directly into the Core Banking system. The system will improve by providing additional information on transaction status feedback on BOL.


8. What will be the impact on Statements?

  • Statement numbers received from the new system will follow the statement number sequence from the last number received from old system.
  • Statements will contain the new account number
