About Synalogik

Synalogik is a pioneer in data aggregation and automation for discovering hidden risk over multiple disparate data sources. Whether you need to carry out fraud detection or enhanced due diligence, our data agnostic approach maximises the operational efficiencies that automation provides.

Read on to find out how we got started, and why we are truly transformative.

The problem with manual investigations

Synalogik was started more than 3 years ago, when our founders became increasingly frustrated with the technology available to help them complete investigations that required multiple data sources.

While some aggregation solutions existed to support due diligence, invariably, tools were limited. Available datasets were proprietary to specific businesses and never provided enough data, alone, to conclude an investigation satisfactorily.

The result being that an investigator or analyst would have risks that required deeper analysis and evaluation which would inevitably need additional data sources. This created a laborious, time-consuming task to manually aggregate the data from various sources and cross reference what was found to create compelling reports.

A complete automation solution over multiple data sources

From this challenge, was born the vision for Scout®. A data aggregation platform that would be data agnostic, integrating third party, open source, and internal data; in doing so allowing organisations to aggregate data quickly, to complete all aspects of enhanced due diligence, fraud investigation, vetting, third party risk assessment or any other data-based analysis or investigation in one platform.

We work with clients to integrate all the data sources they use most, however they are stored, and pull those searches into automated workflows to save clients time and give them the data to make better decisions.

Commercial sector expansion

Initially designed for Government, we quickly discovered that the commercial sector was facing the same challenges around aggregating data over multiple data sources, and the availability of technology that could offer a single source to carry out automated enhanced due diligence and sophisticated fraud detection investigations.

Our clients now include Natwest Group, Entain Plc, Buzz Bingo, Marble Arch, Solicitors and Innovate UK. In fact, Scout® has become the compliance platform to more than a third of the UK gambling market, 10% of the UK insurance market, it has won more than half a million pounds in grants through Innovate UK, as well as helping law firms uncover perpetrators of fraud and verify supply chain issues.

In 2020, in support of our technology and rapid growth we received a seven-figure investment round.

For both 2020 and 2021, Scout® has been selected as a finalist in the Outstanding New Product or Technology category of the Tackling Economic Crime Awards (TECAs) – the premier annual awards event for the industry, chosen by a panel of peers.

Keeping True to Our Vision

Throughout the last 3 years our vision and mission has remained the same. To help organisations that need to discover and evaluate risk to do so more efficiency through a data agnostic approach to the integration of data sources, and better tools to aggregate, analyse and visualise the links between entities, reduce false positives and report findings. In doing so, we enable analysts to make better decisions, and organisations to increase profitability and customer satisfaction, whilst protecting their reputation, reducing risk, and ensuring that they operate compliantly.

Along with internal data and open source, Scout® has out-of-the-box third party data integrations with CRIF, Creditsafe, TransUnion, GBG, LexisNexis, Equifax, W2 Global, the Claims Underwriting Exchange (“CUE”) data set for the insurance sector.

But it is just a start; we are adding additional datasets all the time to continue transforming and improving investigations and checks over multiple data sources.
