Define the banking details input

On the Banking Details tab, specify up to four banking detail sets to refine the vendor detection. Account number, International Bank Account Number (IBAN) and Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication/bank identifier code (SWIFT/BIC) values are unique for every vendor. These values can be helpful for vendor detection. Vendor database records and the banking details extracted with an input locator are compared. If there is a match, the alternatives are rated by the defined reward.

For example,

  • European banks require the SWIFT/BIC as an international standard for identifying bank accounts across national borders. Define a regular expression to configure an input Format Locator.

    The regular expression definition for Germany, Switzerland, France and Great Britain is: [a-z|A-Z]{4}(DE|CH|FR|GB).{2}.{3}

  • European banks also require the IBAN for international transfers. Define a regular expression to configure an input Format Locator.

    The regular expression definition for Germany is: (DE)\d{2}\d{8}\d{10}

    The regular expression definition for Great Britain is: (GB)\d{2}[a-z|A-Z]{4}\d{6}\d{8}

  • Banks in the United States, Australia, New Zealand have not adopted IBAN, but use SWIFT or other standards for international transfers.

    Kofax Transformation Modules Public Wiki page offers information about international payment systems, regular expressions and configuring these in a Format Locator.
