How Lyons Commercial Data Helps Streamline Account Verification & Compliance for Banks & Credit Unions


Lyons Commercial Data’s services are designed to help banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions mitigate risk, ensure compliance, and streamline operations. Our tools are particularly beneficial for organizations seeking to comply with the U.S. Patriot Act, Customer Identification Program (CIP), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements.

One of the primary services offered by Lyons Commercial Data is routing number verifications.

In addition to routing number verification, Lyons Commercial Data provides account verification services. Using real-time account verification search tools, these services can significantly decrease returns by 50% or more. This improves the efficiency of transactions and enhances the security of financial operations, protecting the institution and its customers from potential fraud.

Lyons Commercial Data also offers sanction list screening services. Our advanced algorithm provides flexible and reliable results, helping financial institutions avoid conducting business with blocked or prohibited parties.

Moreover, Lyons Commercial Data supports payment processing by providing up-to-date data on U.S. and Canadian financial institutions. This service includes accurate domestic financial institution data such as current and historical ABA, ACH, Wire routing number information, and much more.  Data is provided via a Web API, file-based download, or a browser-based search tool.
