NON-TRANSACTIONAL DATA ANALYSIS
Non-Transactional Data Analysis =
Working with supplemental or indirectly
available data that provides context, color,
or explanation to the standard “necessary”
data we record from execution of normal
transactions and maintenance in the system.
Analyze data from card activity which did not generate a transaction record, and new information about the path of a transaction to either denial or authorization.
Are my card limits working as designed?
How many denied transactions are occurring each day?
ENHANCED TRANSACTIONAL DETAILS
Review transactional context such as “card not present” indicators and ATM fee amounts, and answer questions
Are members using their cards online more than at physical locations? By how much?
How many out-of-network ATM fees are my members paying?
MERCHANT CATEGORIES – BUSINESS PURPOSES
Analyze transactional activity based on groups of business purposes such as gas purchases, grocery purchases,
entertainment, and more.
Which of my members are using their debit card for food and entertainment purchases?
Are members’ buying habits changing for things like travel or entertainment?
