Helping financial services organizations keep up with a changing market landscape, NICE Actimize, a NICE business (Nasdaq: NICE) and leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, today announced that OrboGraph has joined the X-Sight Marketplace, the industry’s first financial crime risk management-focused ecosystem designed to assist financial services organizations to evaluate new point solutions and move to stay on top of a challenging regulatory and criminal environment.
The X-Sight Marketplace leverages the X-Sight Platform-as-a-Service and further expands the functionality offered by the platform. The NICE Actimize X-Sight Platform-as-a-Service offers a single, unified, cost-effective way for financial service organizations to rapidly innovate and to introduce new services while supporting best-in-class financial crime, risk and compliance management capabilities.
OrboGraph’s flagship solution for check fraud prevention, Anywhere Fraud, applies image analysis (automated signature verification, check stock validation, and check style analysis) with optional transaction analysis (data analytics) to on-us and transit checks for identification of counterfeits, forgeries, and alterations in real-time or batch processing. Anywhere Fraud can be applied to any traditional or self-service check workflow, including Inclearings, teller, ATM, mobile or RDC. The image analysis technology scores the check image considering fraudulent attributes, then feeds the results to fraud review and case management systems for final decisioning.
Technology providers, such as OrboGraph with its OrboAnywhere suite, that partner with NICE Actimize’s X-Sight Marketplace ecosystem, are reviewed for their ability to complement financial crime and compliance solutions. Once approved, software and service providers become available to the NICE Actimize community via the X-Sight Marketplace. FSOs can quickly browse through X-Sight Marketplace solution categories to find scalable options that solve their unique business problems.
Integrating OrboGraph’s Anywhere Fraud into the NICE Actimize Integrated Fraud Management Platform, IFM-X, enables financial service organizations to enrich transaction data with check image scores (like counterfeit stock or forged signatures). The combined solution can achieve significant benefits, including:
- Improving fraud detection above traditional transaction analysis along with greater accuracy of detection;
- Closing the gap between digital payments and paper-originated payments by stopping more check fraud at the bank of first deposit (BofD) as well as at the paying bank;
- Strengthening the barriers for protection against sophisticated fraud schemes, including kiting, when fraudsters transfer funds from one payment modality to another, i.e. deposit a check via mobile, then transferring to another account with the real-time payment.
“OrboGraph welcomes this partnership with NICE Actimize as we bring innovation and business value to the large bank market as well as regional financial institutions,” stated Barry Cohen, Co-President, OrboGraph. “There is strong synergy and alignment between the industry-leading financial crime solutions and platforms that NICE Actimize offers its community and OrboGraph. We look forward to building our presence within this innovative community platform.”
“We are excited that OrboGraph, who shares our common goal of bringing further benefits of intelligent automation to the Marketplace ecosystem, is partnering with us and joining the X-Sight Marketplace community,” said Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize.
Additional categories that will be added to NICE Actimize’s X-Sight Marketplace from other partner participants will include ID Verification, Ultimate Beneficial Ownership, Value-added Data & Adverse Media, Watchlist, Device Identification, and User Authentication & Fraud. Additional partners will be announced as the X-Sight Marketplace grows.
