MIMICS has interfaced with over 150 different third-party systems over the years, such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Daily/Periodic Interfaces and Data Conversions. These interfaces have been facilitated a number of ways, including the following:
Of these various interfaces offered by MIMICS, we would like to highlight a few:
SWIFT is the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 9,000 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 209 countries trust us every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages. (from SWIFT)
Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States. ACH processes large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches. ACH credit transfers include direct deposit payroll and vendor payments. ACH direct debit transfers include consumer payments on insurance premiums, mortgage loans, and other kinds of bills. Debit transfers also include new applications such as the Point-of-Purchase(POP) check conversion pilot program sponsored by NACHA-The Electronic Payments Association. Both the government and the commercial sectors use ACH payments. Businesses are also increasingly using ACH to collect from customers online, rather than accepting credit or debit cards.

Real time gross settlement systems (RTGS) are funds transfer systems where transfer of money or securities takes place from one bank to another on a "real time" and on "gross" basis. Settlement in "real time" means payment transaction is not subjected to any waiting period. The transactions are settled as soon as they are processed. "Gross settlement" means the transaction is settled on one to one basis without bunching or netting with any other transaction. Once processed, payments are final and irrevocable. (description from Wikipedia)
The Corporate, Municipal, and UITs (CMU) system provides all of its customers with RTTM - a single pipeline, a common processing platform, and a standardized message format for the U.S. fixed income markets. RTTM reduces execution and settlement risk as well as costs because it allows customers to maximize the volume of trades that match on trade date, and ensures that trades are locked in and ready for settlement, moments after they've been submitted. It also allows firms to fix any processing problems the same day when an error occurs, rather than waiting for the following morning, as in the previous batch processing system.
RTTM is the matching mechanism for CMUs, however, clearance & settlement remains with the existing systems established at NSCC. Both NSCC and FICC are wholly-owned DTCC subsidiaries. FICC, which began operations on January 1, 2003, was created through the merger of the Government Securities Clearing Corporation (GSCC) and MBS Clearing Corporation (MBSCC).
The Corporate, Municipal and UIT services offered by FICC avails participants membership to Real-Time Trade Matching (RTTM) Services. (from DTCC)

You deserve better financial software. We have been thoughtfully crafting intuitive, easy-to-use software for decades to give you more of what you want, less of what you don’t.
Software should not be one-size-fits-all. We take the time to get to know what makes you you, so that we can customize our software to offer a product that is exactly to your specifications and intuitively easy to use.
Our software does much of the “heavy lifting” of calculating, processing and automating to help greatly boost your productivity, streamline workflow operations and get you moving at optimal efficiency.
Beyond the labor you will save with the wide-ranging functionality our software provides, our customizations give you more of what you want for a lower price than our competition.
We respect the sensitive nature of your information. That’s why we offer industry-exceeding security, including fully-encrypted databases and data tokenization.
We truly pride ourselves on our friendly, responsive customer support, day or night. We love our customers and strive for 100% client satisfaction. But don’t take our word for it; read what our actual users say.

We are very happy with the MIMICS product that we are currently using. Our staff is very complimentary of the customer service there, as well as the response time.
We are happy with MIMICS. The Repo system we use has been very stable and customer support is readily available if needed.
Software is very customizable, allowing us address needs and changes as they arise.
The method used prior to MIMICS' installation in 2004 was a manual ledger. I'd say 100% increase in efficiency!
After working with MIMICS for over 15 years, I can honestly say their customer service is above and beyond expectations. Whether working on an upgrade to an existing product or requesting an additional service, the response time is exceptional. The staff is always pleasant and accessible!
[MIMICS Item Collections system is] a top-of-the-line domestic item collections software that we not only use for form printing, but also to balance to our general ledger account…we are very pleased with the quality of the product and the service we receive.
Since 2004, the Central Bank of The Bahamas has engaged MIMICS to develop several solutions to automate the processing of dormant accounts, to integrate cash management activities with straight-through processing capabilities, and to provide bondholder accounting for its registrar activities. Through the automation of these activities, the bank has achieved greater efficiency in its operations, with the desired audit trails.
The Bank is pleased with the quality of service support delivered by MIMICS and its demonstrated commitment to ongoing product enhancement in a cost-effective manner.
Saves on time both tracking collections and paying collections. It takes me about 5 minutes every time it is used, compared to 30 to 1 hour-plus by hand.
The system is very efficient for our daily use. It functions exactly the way we need it to.
The Repo software completely automates the pledging of securities to our sweep customers and communicates to these customers their daily positions.
Customer service is fantastic!
