Stop invoice fraud

CloudTrade's invoice Fraud Protection flags suspected fraudulent invoices before they enter your business.

Protect your business,
stop the uncertainty

Identifying fraudulent invoices can be a time-consuming error-prone process and, when it all goes wrong, very costly. With CloudTrade’s Invoice Fraud Protection (IFP), we identify and detect suspect fraudulent invoices as they arrive and before they enter your business, allowing your team to make decisions as to how to proceed, putting your business in control and slashing the risk of paying fraudulent invoices.

How does IFP work?

CloudTrade’s Invoice Fraud Protection extracts and validates the invoice data before checking for fraudulent features.

1. Email arrives

Invoice arrives in a designated email inbox.

2. Data Extraction

CloudTrade Universal Capture extracts the data from the invoice.

3. IFP checks the invoice data

IFP analyses the invoice data checking it against the key identifying fraudulent features and quarantines suspected fraudulent features and quarantines suspected fraudulent invoices for the appropriate action.

4. Submitted into the ERP

If the invoice passes the fraud checks the invoices data enters your ERP automatically

5. Stored in the archive

All actions performed by Universal Capture and Invoice Fraud Protection, as well as the invoice data, are stored in the archive for as long as required.
