Crunch Platform

The Crunch platform is a fully comprehensive, web-based, card and cardholder management platform for Crunch plastic and virtual cards which can be styled with your company logo. The platform is designed to be adaptable and portable and will scale to most browsers, allowing access by clients and cardholders on any smart device.

Client Access

Primary features of the client platform

  • Manage a company or organisation through building layers by association
  • Manage client cardholder groups with predefined rules, permissions and velocity limits for the cardholder
  • Access to and management of the integrated know your customer (KYC) process
  • Cardholder registration, maintenance and permissions
  • Manage additional cards to your employees

Cardholder Access

The web-based cardholder registration process automatically generates emails with the credentials needed to access the online card management portal.

The cardholder will have access to:

  • Review their data
  • Check their balance
  • View their transactions history
  • Manage their secondary card, if part of the program
  • Manage shared access to their portal
  • Manage email alerts

The platform is a customisable, permission-driven system, which can be fully tailored to suit your needs. For a more detailed understanding of how it works, contact us for an online demonstration.

Know Your Customer (KYC)

KYC is a compulsory requirement for card issuance. If you have adequate KYC procedures, and upon proof and approval of the process, registration can be simplified.

Where electronic KYC is not possible, the relevant documentation is uploaded on Crunch and is integrated with a Manual check KYC specialist. The platform also provides full checks for PEPs (politically exposed persons) and sanctions, both during cardholder sign-up and on-going, i.e. your cardholders are checked daily against all updated lists.

Virtual Cards

A Crunch virtual card (Visa or Mastercard) offers all the same functionality as a physical card except for ATM or payment terminal access and without the fees costs of a plastic card! Crunch virtual cards make online payments fast, secure, simple and cost-effective. They are ideal for online sales incentives.

Fraud Protection

In our modern world, card fraud is more common and this terminology actually includes a wide-ranging of actions such as theft, fraud, money laundering, etc. To tackle this issue and protect our programs, Crunch implemented GPS Protect for all their programs.

GPS Protect is a tool designed to protect financial institutions and cardholders from fraudulent transactions or money laundering. The system works in near real time and based on transactional data checks and calculation, flag suspicious transactions or events that are predefined by our rules.

Using the performance monitoring capabilities of each transaction significantly reduces the financial risk of the bank. GPS Protect allows storing of any kind of authorization statistics, which can then be used to create rules and analysis of suspicious transactions. GPS Protect is a modern and continuously developing product, which allows Crunch to stay ahead of fraudsters.
