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 information.


George Barron, CTO at Unified Software commented:


“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.
