LexisNexis Risk Solutions Enhances Accurint® Real-Time Phones Search to Locate Hard-to-Find Individuals with 50 Percent Greater Accuracy Than Competitive Solutions

Law enforcement and other government agencies can now track down individuals faster and easier with smarter identity-matching logic and more data sources


WASHINGTON, DC and ATLANTA – LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today made it easier for law enforcement and government agencies to locate hard-to-find individuals using phone numbers by enhancing its LexisNexis Accurint® Real-Time Phones Search technology.

The new LexisNexis Accurint Real-Time Phones Search now provides primary phone contact information 50 percent more accurate1 than competitive solutions thanks to enhanced data-matching intelligence and more data sources to draw from. The technology enables federal, state and local agencies to generate better investigative leads and solve investigations faster by finding identity information tied to a phone number instantly.

“Being able to track down a phone number to a suspect, witness or person-of-interest in real-time as part of an investigation is often more valuable than having a Social Security Number in hand,” said Haywood Talcove, CEO, Government, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “The enhanced Accurint Real-Time Phones Search is part of our ongoing effort to give investigative agencies the most advanced tools for finding those who would allude them.”

LexisNexis Risk Solutions improved the solution with new programming logic that ties an individual to a phone number and other identity information with much greater accuracy. The technology now provides more data sources from which users can draw from to resolve identities.

How it works
The Accurint Real-Time Phones Search helps to locate hard-to-find individuals and businesses using phone number, name and other simple queries. A search provides detailed information on current and previous carriers that can be used for investigative purposes.
In addition to locating individuals tied to a phone number, the technology can be used to uncover associates or other critical information tied to an investigation. Users can also run batch files for quick processing of a large amount of records.

The enhanced LexisNexis Accurint Real-Time Phones Search is available now.
