Nordigen Premium is here to eliminate the pain of working with data

| Article by: NordigenProfile Image Nordigen 3 min

Working with raw data is most often than not a nightmare, presenting itself as badly structured and lacking many essential details that help businesses create amazing products for their customers.

With  Nordigen’s Premium 2nd generation, we bring to you exciting improvements that will not only make your products/services more versatile, but also more precise and faster.

Let’s dive right in.

Some of the improvements we are most excited about  🎉

  • Better structured data – transaction information and data points (e.g. address) are structured more clearly, with both transaction purpose and business category specified.
  • Faster – categorisation data is processed 10 times faster when compared to the 1st generation premium.
  • Cleaner – the information is cleaned effectively to provide quality data that is simple to understand.

After all the tests that were done on our initial Premium Products, we understood that there wasn’t a real need for multiple independent products. Therefore, in order to maximize their full potential, we compiled them into a single product, one Nordigen Premium. 

That’s exactly what the 2nd generation has to offer: a more effectivefaster, and reliable way to make sense of raw transaction data sent by banks, all in one simple product. 

What you get with Premium🏆

When evaluating transaction data, from banks you get the sum amount, standard data and tons of unstructured text. With Premium, the output of transaction information also includes the following fields: 

  • Clean name  (company associated with the transaction)
  • Branch  (if applicable)
  • Location  (address, city, region, postal code, country)
  • Website information
  • Transaction type
  • Business category 
  • Purpose category

As an example, if you work for Nordigen, in your transaction data the business category is “IT service provider”, but the purpose category is “Income” &“Salary”. But there is so much more you can do with the information provided when using our new product.

With Premium, you will see segmented information about the location of the business (address, city, region, postal code, etc.), direct URLs to their website and also their logo images. With this data organised in a really neat way, it will be a breeze to integrate these extra pieces of information into your products and services, greatly improving your customers’ user experience.

Using the example of Nordigen as an employer, for a monthly salary paid to an employee account, you would go from this unstructured raw data: 👇🏻

To this gorgeous piece of data, with all the information you need, organised, and essentially one line of code away: 👇🏻

With the arrival of Nordigen Premium’s 2nd generation, you will have access to a much improved categorisation feature, that allows for a comprehensive understanding of all income and expense transactions.

Transaction categorisation hierarchy tree

To allow for fast, intuitive, and efficient analysis of data, we have implemented a 3 level hierarchy tree for both verticals, in regard to purpose categories. The main levels – 8 on the income, and 16 on the expense – will give a quick overview on the main category, while the 2nd and 3rd level categories specify the nature of the transaction in more detail.

Below, you can find the new hierarchy tree for transaction categorisation:

  • Income
    • Salary
    • Pension
    • Pension capital pay out
    • Work on demand

Furthermore, to facilitate the understanding of data and improve services that have our categorisation as a foundation, the business category has also been revamped. In this 2nd generation Premium, we have made available a list with a few thousand individual categories.

This might sound like an overwhelming number, but the final result is undeniable. You, and your customers, will be presented with a more reliable and precise classification of the business where the transaction originated.
