What problem does Smart Screening solve?

Screening solutions are a vital element of efficient and effective compliance. If they are even marginally inaccurate, it could result in high false positives, delayed customer onboarding, held payments and even the risk of missing out on true hits – which results in huge fines.

Safely grow your customer base with accurate and continuous screening against sanctions lists, politically exposed persons (PEPs), adverse media and other blacklist databases. Smart Screening leverages AI-powered identity-matching to accurately identify positive hits while reducing false positives across names and transactions, in real-time and in batch mode.

This combination of machine learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) enables fast and efficient customer and transaction screening, to minimise compliance friction and increase operational efficiency.
