Use Cases for Different Merchant Needs

Kount Central™ protects payment service providers and their merchant portfolio with proven AI-driven fraud prevention that uses supervised and unsupervised machine learning to increase revenue streams and provide additional value-added services. Kount Central delivers enterprise-level digital fraud prevention for payments and accounts for your entire merchant base, from start-up to Fortune 500, regardless of vertical market.

Kount Central includes four modes of operation to maximize protection for processors and merchants while increasing order acceptance rates and dramatically reducing chargebacks and the need for manual review. Once Kount Central is integrated into the processor’s platform, any or all of the use cases can be run. Processors have the option to offer Kount Central’s fraud prevention services as a value-add for their merchants, or charge a fee for the service.

Kount Central is integrated into the processor’s platform so there is no need for the merchant to undertake a complex integration or IT project. In a matter of minutes, even the largest merchants can be up and running and gain protection from the leading fraud mitigation platform with no additional IT hassle.

Kount Central also reduces risk associated with all of the processor’s or gateway’s merchants. It assists with backend underwriting procedures to avoid fines or penalties from regulators. This also gives processors an in-depth view of where their risk sits within their merchant portfolio.
