  • Neural fraud network: Our sophisticated neural network assesses fraud risk for card transactions without delaying or inconveniencing cardholders. Our service includes a call center of skilled analysts combined with an automated voice response unit to provide notifications or card statuses. This real-time neural network enhancement allows you to identify high-risk transactions that assist in authorization decisions
  • Compromised card tracking: Fiserv tracks compromised cards identified in Visa® or MasterCard® alerts. We display alerts relevant to your cards in one convenient, secure application and provide a daily report of card transactions. Our card tracking capability is integrated with our neural network enabling you to generate cases at lower scoring thresholds to aggressively monitor transaction activity on compromised cards
  • Case tracking and automated notifications: Fiserv adds a web-based interface to monitor and manage potential fraud cases. You can update case statuses, enter comments, tag and review transactions and submit case resolution – there's no waiting and no faxes
  • Transaction blocking: Block potentially fraudulent transactions with user-configured rules. When combined with our neural network, a case is automatically created for each denied transaction
  • Additional options: Card Risk Office Essentials can be implemented as a stand-alone package or upgraded with additional Fiserv risk products, including Card Risk Office to make your fraud program even more robust
