Discover hidden links more easily

Our data clashing functionality allows users to compare datasets to identify commonality.
Better analyst decisions
Standardised, concise reports with all sources referenced, free of the human error that can come from manually cross referencing across multiple datasets, enable your analysts to make better decisions and detect more fraud risk.
Discover high-risk activity earlier
Include variable data like Companies House to monitor your customers, reassess at periodic points, and then proactively identify customers whose patterns of behaviour are moving towards offending.
Automate all stages of your KYC and KYB, including onboarding, remediation, monitoring and complex EDD for higher risk customers, saving up to 85% of your analysts’ time.
Challenger banks have been successful in using technology to disrupt the traditional banking sector but, as the above indicates, need to do more to adequately monitor financial crime risks if they are to continue their success.
