Powerful Screening, Flexibility and Accuracy

Take Control and Reduce Your Compliance Burden with Real-Time Transaction Screening

Geopolitics, record surges in sanctions and more intense regulatory scrutiny mean the landscape compliance professionals must navigate has never been more complex. These pressures combined with new ISO payment formats, faster payments, increasing transaction volumes and fintech disruption are adding pressure to already overstretched compliance teams.

Financial crime compliance professionals need the confidence to conduct business and pursue growth opportunities with the certainty that their organization is protected from regulatory risk and reputational damage, without compromising on customer experience and speed. Meeting these seemingly conflicting requirements of compliance and speed can be a significant challenge.

Businesses need a powerful screening solution which reduces their compliance burden and helps to control costs, while meeting regulator requirements.
