Digital Bank Reduces Processing Time by 75% Through Disputed Debit Card Chargeback Processing Automation 

Robotic process automation eliminates repetitive, time-consuming and error-prone manual processes to accomplish business goals.

Challenge / Goal

A digital-only bank built at the cusp of technological advancement and banking expertise desired a premium digital experience for their customers through consistent and high-quality web/mobile apps and technical upgrades. To achieve these aims, the company needed to overcome challenges including:

  • An intensely manual, error-prone dispute chargeback process related to thousands of debit and credit card payment disputes
  • Disputes received from numerous methods including calls and emails
  • Agents needing to manually check customer accounts to verify listed transactions and determine the next action for each dispute
  • A heavy amount of manual comparison work which led to potential inaccuracy in work queues
  • The need for reminders and other tools were required to ensure alignment across the dispute team


To resolve these challenges, the intelligent automation experts at Bridgenext (formerly Emtec Digital) leveraged robotic process automation (RPA) to eliminate manual effort in the dispute chargeback process. The automated solution significantly reduces the number of steps required to navigate between systems, accelerating dispute resolution times and providing a better customer and employee experience.
