Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy

Partnering with Businesses

Active in several European countries, Monext has worked with some of the largest companies in banking, retail, and e-commerce to help them grow their businesses across the continent. Monext is one of the first European providers of payment solutions and services that support multi-lingual, multi-currency, and cross-country transactions. Their offerings span back-office and 24/7 customer service center activities.

By 2015, Monext aims to leverage the full potential that the Single European Payments Areas (SEPA) offers – helping solidify their position as a leader among electronic payment providers.

The Challenge

A Growing Problem

A Growing Problem

The growth of credit card payments, especially in the area of online sales, has led to a significant increase of fraud. This fraud has become amazingly well-organized in recent years.
Driven by their overarching goal of helping some of Europe’s largest e-businesses, retailers, and banks, Monext offers tools that help minimize the risk of fraud for the client – be it the consumer holding the credit card or the company accepting the transaction.

But Monext realized that they needed a more targeted approach to predicting potential fraudulent activity. In particular, the company wanted to decrease false alerts to improve the consumer experience and to reduce costs in their call centers.

Enter SAP

Out with the Old, In with the New

Monext made the decision to replace an outsourced analytics solution that used a rather generalized model to predict e-fraud. With the SAP InfiniteInsight solution, Monext could create custom-tailored predictive models for each unique card provider and card type—including credit, debit, prepaid, and luxury cards.

With these improvements in overall consumer experience, call center agents are now able to focus more on providing valuable services to consumers and addressing other challenges.

Better Business: Run Simple

Less Time and Effort, More Reliable Results

In the past, it could take Monext days or even weeks to create a predictive model to help identify potential fraudulent activity. Today, just one half-time analyst is capable of building customized models that are tailored to specific needs, with reliable results available within hours. This enables a more accurate prediction of the potential fraudulent activity and helps to ensure the trust that businesses and millions of consumers have in secure credit card transactions.
