Fraud Detection & Prevention

Smart fraud detection and prevention features that reduce losses and ensure you run a successful device affordability program :

  • Reduce losses by identifying fake sales
  • Prevent unauthorized usage of the device via multi-layer device security
  • Always on watermark, that ensures the financed device is not resold in the grey market.
  • Industry-specific features like SIM swap detection for telecom operators and retail chains selling bundled products.

Device Lock

The device lock is a highly effective deterrent, that ensures customers don’t miss their payments. These are also very effectively integrated by clients in their post-due collection journeys, to ensure missed payments are paid.

To run a successful smartphone financing or PayGo program, Datacultr recommends clear and transparent communication at the time of sale and before locking the device. The Odyssey locked screen provides the customer a clear path to unlock, whereby the customer can pay using payment options allowed by the lender, these may be through payment apps, wallets or a USSD-driven option
