AU10TIX: Online Retailers Could Save Hundreds Of Millions In Losses To Year-End Fraud
Online retailers may be loosing hundreds of millions to card scams, return scams and direct identity fraud that peak at the year-end holiday period. The technology that can help curb ID fraud, and at the same time increase effective transaction handling capacity, is already there.
Nicosia, Cyprus (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
“Up to 9% of all online transactions carried out during the period under review will turn out to be fraudulent”, says a fresh Trustev report. A great deal of the fraudulent activity will only become apparent after year-end when customers start receiving their credit card statements, having a massive impact on a retailer’s balance sheet for several months. “The sheer volume of transactions occurring online during the holiday period”, denotes “Thepayers.com” industry portal: “means that while awareness is heightened, many retailers, banks, and credit card companies are forced to relax their security and fraud protection in order to cope with the onslaught of card payments."
Across all regulated markets, customer identity is verified, according to KYC regulations, based on the examination of customer’s ID document and customer data against identity verification resources and watch lists. Once “passed” the identity verification hurdle, detecting fraud happens primarily “post mortem” – namely by detecting suspicious transaction behaviour. Behaviour-based, second-line fraud detection technologies are already widespread, but many enterprises and service providers still rely on slow and often ineffective manual ID examination and processing as first-line solution.
Online and mobile ID authentication and record processing technologies are already making headway to banking, financial services, gaming, telecom, car sales and rental, and other “E-tailing” markets. AU10TIX has introduced the BOS online solutions already 2 years ago. AU10TIX BOS automates the identification, authentication and validation of ID document images that customers submit on line. BOS also transforms these ID images to workable digital records in seconds, enabling rapid and more effective response to customer applications. As the company’s pipeline suggests, 2014 will see an accelerated deployment of AU10TIX BOS solutions with more players, more markets and more industries.
“As soon as decision makers realize that it is far more than automating ID fraud detection, business rationale kicks in”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “In the world on online, with much greater volumes on applications, coming from anywhere at any time, and with customer patience span shortening – that’s when the full scope of benefits of our AU10TIX BOS solution becomes compelling”.
“If you can decide between an army of back-office reviewers processing up to hundreds and thousands of images an hour, and an automated solution that does that far faster and far more accurately – what would you choose?”, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX:”It is the economy of scale in the online space that makes automation a necessity for survival and growth. With the AU10TIX BOS solution in place you can accelerate customer screening and onboarding while enhancing the effectiveness of your fraud protection. This means business. This is a competitive advantage on top of cost saving and KYC compliance”
