Unified Software, the bank data validation web service
provider, today announce the launch of some exciting new features that have been
added to their popular BankVal UK
web service. Unified Software have added enhanced credit/debit card validation
plus a new data conversion module for transforming UK bank sort codes and
account numbers into international format.
As online credit/debit card fraud becomes an
increasing problem, Unified Software brings an enhanced level of credit/debit
card validation to the market via an easy to use web service.
More than just a simple check of the
credit/debit card number, BankVal UK can now check the card type,
issuing organisation, country of issue and other useful fraud detection
George Barron, CTO at Unified Software
“This enhanced service is an ideal first
line check to make sure that credit and debit card numbers have been entered
correctly and as a powerful anti-fraud measure. Available as a web service,
this module can be used to pre-screen credit/debit card numbers BEFORE they are
encrypted to a database or forwarded to a merchant service. We have worked
closely with our customers and anti-fraud organisations and are confident that
we have delivered a service that will improve the quality of our customers’
data and help to reduce card crime.”
Also today, Unified Software has launched a
new data conversion module, uniquely available as a web service. BankVal can
now convert UK
sort codes and account numbers into international IBAN / SWIFT format.
An essential component for processing
international payments via SEPA or CHAPS networks, this service will be
valuable for multinational businesses that wish to standardise their data.
