The key to a successful and streamlined customer acquisition process is to ensure that the bank account details provided by the customer are correct from the outset.

You can only achieve this by checking bank details (bank sort codes/account numbers and building society roll numbers) at point of data entry.

Where bank account details are collected without being checked using account validation and roll number validation software, typically 8%* or more of the data will prove to be incorrect. This can result in an average repair cost of around £35 per record. Failure to validate account details can result in rejected payments and poor Straight-Through-Processing (STP) rates that can have a direct impact on administration costs and customer service.

To provide an efficient service to your customers and minimise costs you should ensure that you include bank validation software in your payment applications.
