Geo Location: Location information for card payments

The geolocation feature provides coordinates (longitude and latitude) for card payments that have taken place physically (i.e. excluding e-commerce). The result? Precise location information of merchants in Switzerland. The feature also offers the option of displaying the merchant’s coordinates on a map.

Counterparty category: Enrich transaction data even more effectively

The hierarchically structured counterparty category with over 1,000 categories makes it possible to identify payments to third parties and classify merchants down to the finest detail (e.g., pharmacy vs. chemist). With the help of the counterparty category, you can carry out more detailed analyses and create more accurate features for your machine learning models.

Efficient sales and lead generation

Through data enrichment and interpretation of transaction data, customer behaviour patterns are made visible. Based on purchasing behaviour, card use, interests, and geo-information, you can create customer profiles even more easily.

Understand your customer

Actively shape customer relationships

Relationships with third-party banks provide crucial information that can complement and round off customer profiles. Thanks to the detection of third party assets, periodically recurring payments, and sustainable purchasing behaviour, you increase the accuracy of cross-selling with needs-based offers and can benefit from qualified leads both in e-banking and in personal consultations.

Process automation

Approval process in lending

Transaction data provides information about current salary, possible rental income, taxes, and existing loans. The intelligent linking of data in the Enrichment Engine simplifies credit checks. Approval processes for credit card limits or small loans can be fully automated more easily as well.

Risk assessment

KYC – better and more efficient

The Enrichment Engine enables you to identify existing alimony payments, relationships with third party providers (TTP), debt collection payments, or a client’s tendency to gamble. This makes risk assessment both easier and clearer.
