Introducing Detect

1 in 4 organisations are impacted by fraud. And almost all organisations are affected by payment processing errors. Fraud and error can cost your organisation time, money and even reputational damage.

Detect is the essential payments security add-on for AccessPay users seeking to stop fraud and error before payment files are processed.

What Can Detect Do For You?

Improve Payment Controls

Using a combination of pre-defined rules and artificial intelligence, Detect significantly reduces the possibility of erroneous transactions slipping through the cracks.

Detect Payment Fraud Early

Using a series of triggers and rules, Detect flags possible fraud attempts at the point of payment initiation

Intel to Help You Act Fast

Detect helps you act fast. With any irregularities flagged as soon as your payment file enters the AccessPay platform.

How Does Detect Work?

Detect uses a set of pre-defined rules which can be adapted to build a continuous profile of irregular activity for your organisation. Irregular activity is then flagged using a traffic light system which indicates the individual transactions that need your attention.

Detect is an alerting tool and will not suppress individual transactions automatically, suppression is managed by the user reviewing the information.

What rules are available with Detect?

  • Unrecognised creditors
  • Creditors paid more than once within the same file
  • Creditors paid the same amount more than once within the same file
  • Thresholds on total transaction count
  • Thresholds on total transaction amount
  • Thresholds on individual transaction amounts

If Only They Had Detect: News Worthy Use Cases

Accidentally Underpaying Staff

Some well-known organisations have hit the headlines recently by accidentally underpaying staff. If the error was flagged before Payroll submitted the payment file, this PR nightmare could have been avoided.




One organisation fell victims to CEO fraud via a spoofed email being sent to the finance team demanding to pay a supplier urgently. This could have been flagged as an unrecognised creditor if checked before the payment was ever processed.



Value Threshold

An employer accidentally paid an employee 300x his salary. The employee took the money and ran. This could have been flagged as an exceeded transaction value threshold if the payment file was checked before being processed.
