Use Cases

Professional Services

Lawyers, fund managers and accountants use Lucra to keep their firms compliant and defended against fraudulent transactions.

Safeguarding outbound payments

Protect firm and client money against socially engineered scams and payment errors by accessing accurate and verifiable bank data from payment recipients.

Real-time trusted-source data

Lucra harnesses open banking to source bank account information directly from a recipient's bank.

Superior confirmation of payee

First test of fraud is to actually see the full name on the account. Understand exactly who you are paying and if it matches the recipient.

Transaction activity that matches payee profile

Second test of fraud is to lift the veil on a bank account's usage and age to see whether its activity levels match the economic profile of the recipient.

100% correct payment details

Don't worry about fat finger errors. Lucra pulls the account number, sort code and IBAN directly from the bank. So what you see is 100% correct.
