EBT Hub Suite of Applications
Connected to the Hub is also the following EBT Hub Suite of Applications that greatly increase our clients’ productivity. The applications are:
- Account Viewer
- EBT Exceptions Viewer
EBT Exceptions Viewer
ERTH’s Exception Viewer provides an enhanced level of exception tracking allowing market participants to address time-sensitive issues, enabling local distribution companies to search for missing retailer bills, while also enabling retailers to ensure their bills are received and are properly settled.
ERTH’s Account Viewer goes one step beyond Exception Viewer and provides a single chronological view of a consumer’s account-level information and historical transaction activity. Account Viewer allows clients to quickly find required information by highlighting related transactions and by providing a summary of relevant fields.
EBT Spoke Connector
