Payment Inquiry

The Payment Inquiry Microjourney™ in Pega Customer Service™ for Financial Services provides value by making it easier for commercial bank customers to request payment investigations through multiple channels such as web self-service and Web Chatbot.

This use case enables banks to bridge the gap between robust multichannel customer interactions and back-office payment investigation processes. Additionally, this Microjourney simplifies communication among the various bank resources working on the payment investigation case.

The Payment Inquiry Microjourney is available in web self-service and assisted-service channels.

Web self-service is the primary interface for commercial bank customers to initiate an inquiry into a specific payment. 

Web Self-Service

With web self-service, customers can open a payment inquiry when they receive notification of a specific payment transaction.

  1. Customer reviews the notification that contains the details of the payment received by the bank.
  2. Missing data is proactively identified and displayed to the customer.
  3. When the customer uses the bank’s self-service channel to request a payment inquiry, the probable inquiry reason is prefilled.

App Studio provides personas, stages and steps, and data objects in one window.


Personas help you to group users according to the cases they work on, the channels they can access, and the responsibilities they have within a process.
