Process Account Data using Flinks Upload

A way to capture bank data beyond bank linking. Flinks Upload is a feature that you can enable in Flinks Connect and in your Flinks Dashboard that processes and extracts data from a bank statement or void cheque. We designed this feature for clients who need to analyze their customer’s documents to extract financial insights. When you have an existing Flinks integration, you can consume the data through the same dashboard and API that you use today without any new development work.

Rather than manually reviewing every document you receive, your customers can upload their files through your Flinks integration and we’ll process the data for you. If you’re already receiving data from Flinks, we’ll deliver this to you in the same format that you already have set up.

Flinks Upload includes a fraud detection feature that adds an extra layer of security to your business. We can tell if a bank statement has been altered or tampered with and will notify you right away.

Use this feature if you want to:

  • Decrease the amount of time and costs associated with analyzing customer statements
  • Automate any manual flows that you are currently using to process customer documents
  • Add an additional layer of protection to your business with fraud detection services

To enable this feature in Flinks Connect or in your Flinks Dashboard, contact your Flinks Account Manager.
