New capability to financial crime management solution increases efficiency and accuracy while reducing time for onboarding and customer rejection rate.


Toronto, Canada – Oct 03, 2018 – — Alessa, a provider of software solutions for the detection and prevention of financial crimes, is pleased to announce that it has integrated identity verification with its anti-money laundering (AML) compliance and fraud management platform. The addition of identity verification to the platform means that banks, MSBs, FinTechs, casinos and other regulated organizations in the United States can now verify the identity of persons and businesses with increased confidence, efficiency and accuracy.


Alessa offers a scalable and comprehensive compliance and fraud detection platform for due diligence, real-time transaction monitoring, sanctions screening, and regulatory reporting.  Using the identity verification capabilities within the Alessa solution, institutions can reduce the time and effort required for due diligence with comprehensive public and proprietary data that scores and confirms the identity of individuals and businesses – all from one application. The strength of the identity match can then be incorporated into an overall entity risk score offered by the solution that includes risk factors from sanctions screening, transactions monitoring, and more, for a true picture of the risks associated with an entity.


“Using identity verification is the perfect solution to eliminate the use of multiple applications or internet searches to confirm the identity of entities, as well as reduce the rejection rates due to inaccurate or missing data,” says Andrew Simpson, Chief Operating Officer at Alessa.


Alessa also offers an easy integration with risk intelligence data to screen for high-risk and/or politically-exposed entities (PEPs) to expand due diligence and sanctions screening capabilities.  Once an entity has been flagged as suspicious, the Alessa solution offers highly configurable and easy-to-use workflows and case management to automate investigations by engaging the entire organization.


“The Alessa solution combined with identity verification and risk intelligence data is a powerful solution to accurately assess risk during onboarding, perform automated periodic screening of existing customers, real-time transaction monitoring and automated regulatory reporting,” says Mr. Simpson. “We are pleased to offer our customers this powerful solution to enhance their AML programs and reduce the risks that they face in this global economy.”
