London – Synalogik, a leader in automated AML, KYC, EDD and fraud detection solutions announced today that Sherlock Investigation® API had now been integrated within Scout®; a data agnostic platform aggregating third party, internal and open-source data. Scout® allows your team to login once, then search, risk assess and report across all chosen data sources in one go.

This integration further enhances Scout’s ability to deliver key information to its insurance partners throughout every step of the insurance lifecycle. Coupled with additional data sources such as Companies House, CreditSafe, TransUnion, Equifax, GB Group and open-source intelligence, it will mean that insurers will have a truly holistic view of an individual’s or business’ risk, helping them make mission critical decisions around premiums, claims, MTA and renewals.

Scout’s “input once, access all” approach to data gathering, brings significant operational savings to insurers, from the ability to get automated, standardised reports in seconds to greater accuracy through the elimination of human error in cross referencing links across disparate sources. By combining multiple data points, enhanced with intelligent and highly targeted Open-Source information, insurers can overlay their own risk assessments and be quickly alerted to critical data points to help identify potential fraud and build up a picture of risk.

“Synalogik are proud to be partnering with CRIF Decision Solutions to deliver their key information in support of the insurance industry,” said Daniel White, Chief Commercial Officer, Synalogik. “CRIF have a long heritage of providing data solutions to the insurance industry and our partnership marks a step change in data aggregation for the sector. It means that whatever line of business insurers write, they will benefit from the operational cost savings that Scout’s aggregation and automation capabilities bring.”

“CRIF’s partnership with Synalogik will help insurers make more informed decisions and rely on a wider range of data to deliver better outcomes for their customers. CRIF has always been a data and information system provider and we do believe that the availability, quality and relevance of data will drive more value and effectively boost risk assessment”, commented Sara Costantini, Managing Director of CRIF Decision Solutions.
