HERNDON, Va. — May 1, 2019 — MicroBilt is a new Nacha Preferred Partner for Bank Account Verification. Nacha Preferred Partners are a select group of innovators that contribute to Nacha’s strategic efforts in support of the payments ecosystem by removing friction, increasing ease, improving cash flow accessibility and efficiency, as well as supporting sound risk management and security for ACH payments. MicroBilt was selected as a Preferred Partner because of its proven service that provides accurate and timely verification of bank account information, enabling businesses to reduce risk and improve transaction quality.

“Account validation is an important tool for businesses that originate ACH transactions,” said Jane Larimer, chief operating officer of Nacha. “Fast and accurate account validation enables businesses to better understand their customers, providing for a more positive customer experience, while reducing the number of returned transactions. Organizations like MicroBilt that offer these services to businesses help reduce risk and improve the overall quality of transactions, making for an improved transactional experience for all payments participants.”  

At its core, MicroBilt helps businesses assess and manage risk. Its Risk Verification Database (RVD) is one of the many services it offers that provide businesses with the tools to better manage risk. With RVD, businesses can verify key account details, determine return history, and more. With these details, businesses can make more informed decisions about customers and transactions to facilitate a better payments process.

“Our account validation platform, Risk Verification Database, incorporates the latest technologies to provide businesses with a quick and accurate understanding of the risk profile of their customers,” said Dave King, senior vice president, strategic development at MicroBilt. “With a database of more than 1.5 billion account records, we have one of the most robust account validation offerings in the industry. Banks, credit unions and businesses are looking for the fastest, easiest and most comprehensive path for account validation to help manage and reduce risk, and they’ll find that using our Risk Verification Database provides them an indispensable advantage.”
