Payment Transaction Analytics

Empowering payment analytics with investigative capabilities

Digital disruption is rocking the payments industry with merchants, consumers, and the companies that help move money between them all feeling its effects differently. For banks, card networks and processors, the digital revolution is bringing new opportunities — and complex new challenges. With new ways to pay emerging, incumbent firms can take advantage of solid brand recognition and large customer bases to woo new customers and keep those they already have. For consumers, digital wallets are simplifying purchases, allowing users to pay online with only a username and password and in-store with just a swipe of their thumb or by 'tapping' their mobile device. While this technological revolution is good news for everyone involved in the industry, it does imply that the need for data analytics that generates actionable insights and helps prevent financial crime is now more important than ever. This is why a UK payment services provider, managing in excess of £10 Billion/year, reached out to Siren to bring a solution to one of their most daunting problems.
