Our processing environment was written from the ground up as a fully-distributed group
of separate applications. Our innovative design allows any box in our processing pool to lend
computing support to any part of our production cycle.
One way in which our system uses this functionality is to process large pay stub customer files. Upon receipt, it determines upon initial examination that the file is a candidate for our distributed pool. This first job then analyzes and breaks the file up into 26 manageable chunks. After the pay stub file is split, the number of outstanding pieces requiring processing trips a threshold flag to alert computers in the distributed pool that assistance is needed. A typical pay stub file passes through no less than 15 independent processing steps on its journey from customer upload to creation of individual stubs that are ready for distribution. Each part of the process can enlist the assistance of additional systems from the pool, with each one adding its weight at an impressive 95% return. Our system processes customer data 24 hours a day, seven days a week in real time. Customers who transmit files at 2 a.m on Sundays receive the same level of processing efficiency and expediency as those transmitting files during standard business hours.
