BILLER WIZARD validates the details of customer bill payments and, when embedded into online systems, meets the validation requirements of online banks, ASPs and call centres offering telephone or internet bill payment facilities. Unique in the UK market, the solution includes a comprehensive, secure, and regularly updated database containing biller bank account details and reference number checking rules .”We take great care to verify all the entries in the BILLER WIZARD database” explains Jonathan Williams, Product Marketing Manager for Eiger Systems. “The details of each entry are corroborated with a minimum of two separate sources.
The difference between BILLER WIZARD and the databases of billers that are built and maintained by banks is that we devote considerable resources to the proactive auditing and maintenance of the database, and feed these regular updates through to our customers. We check the reference numbers using the appropriate format rules, and offer hints to help the user find the correct information from a confusing mass of numbers and codes. With 1500 billers in our database, it makes sense for operators of remote banking services to adopt BILLER WIZARD rather than go to the considerable expense of maintaining their biller databases in-house.
The most popular remotely-paid bills in the UK are from utilities, credit and store cards, telecommunications operators and both local and central government. Since the vast majority of these billers participate in the BILLER WIZARD programme, we believe this represents over 90% of the total bill payment market in the UK.”
