"We enable financial institutions to gain efficiency and unleash their full potential"

We believe in Banks

Payments is a strategic channel for creating customer touch points. We believe in banks and their ability to retain the customer relationship and we strive to be the platform to support banks to secure this crucial customer interface.

We believe in simplicity, efficiency and enablement

We are aware of the complexity of multi-scheme compliance management and high cost of chargeback operation at banks. We focus on making a significant contribution by enabling banks to automate such processes in the simplest and most efficient way.

We enable Banks

Rivero enables banks to retain the customer interface while making payment processes more efficient and support banks to delight their customers with streamlined digital interfaces.

Scheme Compliance made easy

kajoAt the heart of the large international card networks, Mastercard and Visa (Schemes) are the standards, rules, and regulations (Scheme Rules) to ensure global interoperability and balance commercials and risks.

Issuing and acquiring banks holding a license have to ensure compliance with scheme rules at all times. As of today, this means manual processes and especially significant resources to deal with a large number of scheme rule changes, driven by the dynamics of the payment industry.

Kajo is a tool with an integrated managed service to digitalize and automate scheme compliance management in the most efficient way. Kajo keeps you up to date with all relevant (e.g. pre-filtered for your license region) scheme “Bulletins” on a daily basis. All “Bulletins” are pre-assigned to your specific products, policies, processes, applications, and third-party providers to automatically generate and assign tasks for any needed internal changes.

For scheme compliance managers, kajo offers easy to use functionalities to monitor compliance (including costs) and orchestrate internal activities. As an additional service, for all major “Bulletins” kajo provides clarifications and interpretation guidelines.

Core features
  • Repository of all bulletins
  • Issuer/Acquirer specific pre-filtered bulletins for license type, region, products etc.
  • Pre-assignment of relevant bulletins to products-, policies-, process-, application- and third-party landscape
  • Task generation for responsible persons/owners of products, policies, process, application, and third-parties
  • Tracking of tasks based on task status and compliance states
  • Tracking of bulletins compliance
  • Monitoring of total costs for every bulletin
  • Dashboard

Your companion in the chargeback process

amikoOne of the important benefits of card payments is the cardholder protection from fraud or poor fulfillment of the purchased products/services. Banks operating under licenses of the international card networks are bound by license agreements to comply with schemes’ chargeback rules and to carry out the chargeback process on behalf of their cardholders.

However, handling fraud and dispute chargebacks are among the most manual and time-consuming back-office processes at banks. With amiko we change this.

Amiko is a fraud and dispute management solution for banks issuing international card networks (e.g. Mastercard, Visa) branded debit and credit cards. Amiko turns the labor-intensive and lengthy paper-based chargeback process into an automated end-to-end digital process with a strong focus on cardholder self-servicing through digital channels (bank’s app or portal).

Amiko increases efficiency for a card issuing bank by a 50% reduction of allocated workforce and significantly improves the digital user experience for the bank’s customers/cardholders.
