Filtering & Drill Down

Reports support live filtering, allow you to drill down or drill across for more insight, and can be exported as either data or a graphic.

Distribution

When creating new reports, choose the audience you want to share them with. Keep reports private or share them with another user or a group of users.

Dashboards & KPI’s

Dashboard reports feature filters allowing you to drill down on specific dates, processors, originators, and more. KPI’s allow you to view information at a glance. Embed as many reports as needed onto your dashboards and customize the layout with the drag-and-drop organizer.

Scheduled Reports and Alerts

The report scheduling system allows you to choose an export format for your report and automatically set up a recurring email. At the time of your choosing, the system will automatically generate your new reports and email them directly to your inbox.

The alert system can be configured to monitor your reports for specific events and notify you when there are changes. For example, you could create an alert to monitor each processor’s return rate which notifies you when they cross a specific threshold.

Advanced Analytics

Our ACH scoring AI engine will monitor your originators’ transaction history and automatically suggest updated risk settings based on the likelihood of returns.  We can even suggest risk limits for new originators by analyzing the behavior of similar accounts on our platform.
