If you are using DecisionIQ the decision will be PASS. For SmartScan you will get “No Search Hits” in the response.

Category: DecisionIQ

A fuzzy search, as opposed to an exact search, will enable our software to conduct a liberal search. It will account for misspellings and phonetic matches for your specific search request to ensure our system doesn’t miss any true positive hits rather than strictly searching for the exact search request.

Category: DecisionIQ

A 75% fuzzy search will enable our system to retrieve hits on names with 75% of the name parts included in the search request. For example if there are 4 name parts in your search request – Abdel Basit Hag Hassan – then all of the results will have a minimum of 3 of the 4 clauses in that name. Whereas if that search was 100% fuzzy, all results would have all four name parts in it. This will limit the number of hits you get on a search.

Category: DecisionIQ

SmartScan is merely a screening tool while DecisionIQ uses our SmartScan technology to make actionable decisions about an individual/entity. DecisionIQ will provide a result as PASS, VERIFY, or FAIL after conducting a search and provide a proof of decision file to provide information on how that decision was made.
