Yooz leverages Artificial Intelligence to help UK businesses tackle invoice fraud

Artificial Intelligence , Fraud Detection

Yooz, an international provider of intelligent P2P software in the Cloud, today announced the launch of YoozProtect, a new functionality to assist in the automatic detection of fraudulent and forged documents and enhance regulation compliance for UK businesses.

Several large-scale cases have recently highlighted the fraud issue, costing businesses such as Google, FacebookDell and Microsoft millions of pounds in fake invoices.

But invoice fraud doesn’t just affect big players. It can have a crucial impact on businesses of all size. The multiplication of invoice fraud cases such as Patisserie Valerie and several London Art Galleries demonstrates the wider vulnerability in this area.

In the UK alone, invoice fraud cost businesses as much as £93 million in 2018 according to a UK Finance report. The digital era has offered new ways for culprits to prepare and conduct fraudulent operations, meaning finance departments of companies need to be much more vigilant. That is why Yooz has launched a new functionality to its solution based on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence that can prevent fraud easily and more efficiently than human-based processes.

Fraud fight and data protection: a major challenge for CFOs in the digital context

With digital transformation, CFOs have become not only financial gatekeepers, but also data protectors. CFOs are at the front line of fighting fraud risks which can arise in many different ways and situations. In this context, meeting their companies' regulatory and safety challenges is becoming one of their highest priorities. For most CFOs, preventing fraud involves implementing mainly behavioural and procedural solutions, such as increasing employee awareness, reinforcing controls, or audits.

Although necessary, these approaches have their limitations, as fraudsters often come from inside the company or among its close associates, and therefore know perfectly how to manipulate victims and thwart human vigilance. Furthermore, the weight of controls may become counterproductive and reduce agility. This is where Artificial Intelligence with Yooz can significantly improve protection and compliance without the need and the risks of manual processes.
