To further increase the accuracy of the information reported
within its Third Party Review (TPR) comprehensive background check
on brokers, Interthinx Inc.
has added advanced name-matching into its technology platform. The
platform enhancement will drastically improve the veracity of
alerts and reduce false positive alert notifications that trigger
client watch lists, the Office of Foreign Asset Control, Freddie
Mac's Exclusionary, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development's Limited Denial of Participation, the National Fraud
Protection Database and bankruptcy databases.
"Most name-matching solutions identify variations due to
phonetic errors, accounting for only 20 to 25 percent of all name
matching errors," stated Stacey Louie, senior vice president of
product development and engineering for Interthinx. "In addition to
phonetic errors, the Interthinx solution will overcome common
variations associated with misspellings, transpositions, acronyms,
nicknames and many other errors, providing our customers better
precision when approving or denying business partners."
"In today's market, lenders need to know with certainty that
their third-party business partners are reputable, reliable, and of
good character," stated Ann Fulmer, vice president of Interthinx.
"This latest technology achievement by Interthinx leaves the
fraudsters with even less room to hide."
