Business Data Enhancement Overview Updated April 29, 2022 16:00 Business Data Enhancement (BDE) enables transactional data to be cleansed, categorized, classified, and enhanced with useful things like merchant data. Complicated, noisy transaction descriptions are turned into simple human-readable descriptions, transactions are assigned to business-specific categories, and if applicable, transactions are assigned a classification such as "Wire" or “ACH.” BDE makes data more valuable and informative by making it clearer and easier for an organization to analyze and present data to end users. BDE is designed to provide the best experience for businesses. In other words, BDE is not designed with an eye toward ordinary customers. BDE should be accessed through the MX Platform API. However, it is also available through the Nexus API and Sherlock API for legacy customers and non-standard integrations. Was this article helpful?
