Designed for the Data Furnisher that receives large volumes of Automated Consumer Dispute Verification (ACDV) Requests, the e-OSCAR Batch Experience is a product offering that provides the Data Furnisher with the secure receipt of ACDV Request batch files in XML format from e-OSCAR for use within the Data Furnisher’s internal application. The Data Furnisher may further streamline processes through the internal development of ACDV Responses for secure transport of XML files to e-OSCAR via the Batch Interface.
Utilizing the e-OSCAR Batch Experience Interface may allow the Data Furnisher to manage the dispute process in their own application, which could present efficiencies internally. Depending upon the Data Furnisher’s current processes, the e-OSCAR Batch Experience Interface could prevent the duplication of effort by allowing entries to be made in their own application and not have to repeat the process again in e- OSCAR.
An added advantage of the e-OSCAR Batch Interface is the storage of daily files up to 30 days. This can be of benefit if there is ever a need to recover files sent or received within the past 30 calendar days.
File transfer within the e-OSCAR Batch Experience Interface is managed through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). e-OSCAR's Batch SFTP is supported only as a pull option. Access is secured by SSH Keys generated by the Data Furnisher and the site-to-site VPN's are retained. Files are posted on the drive for fourteen (14) days, allowing Data Furnishers the ability to retrieve the files despite patching or local system changes.
