Uncomplicate Global Sanction, PEP and Adverse Media Screening and lower your overall cost of AML compliance... Guaranteed!


The Challenge

Despite all the technology, sanction screening continues to be manual and time-consuming.

False Positives

The best systems still yield 5-7% false
positives that must be cleared

Record keeping

Compliance best practices
demand auditable documentation
stored for a minimum of 5 years.

Long and Expensive Onboarding times

Sanction screening still means
manual overheads that slow down
customer onboarding.
