What does the product do?

CustomerXPs’ Clari5 is an enterprise solution that enables commercial banks to detect transactions in real-time that are fraudulent and/or illegal in terms of Anti-Money Laundering/ Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CFT) laws. 

Clari5 facilitates compliance with the requirements of the FATF AML global guidelines and United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). In several countries, Clari5 also facilitates compliance with the central banks’ requirements for implementation of cross-channel fraud risk management. It can also provide important insights about customer experience and enable the bank to initiate cross-sell and up-sell at the customer’s  particular touch-point.

Clari5 can efficiently process large amounts of data, operating at a speed of 4700 Transactions per Second (TPS). It can be incorporated within the existing infrastructure of any bank operating across all banking channels – Tellers, ATMs, POS, E-Commerce, Mobile banking, and Internet banking – and covering all core products (Deposits, Loans, Remittances and Cards).

Clari5 aligns with a number of key banking themes and trends that have been identified by Chartis Research. The vast majority of financial institutions agree that it makes sense to integrate control of fraud with monitoring of transactions that could fall foul of AML/CFT laws. Regulators are frequently drawing links between money laundering and fraud. Most institutions are taking an ‘omnichannel’ approach to business. Anomalous transactions should be recognized in real time if the solution is to work optimally. The solution is most effective if it takes a holistic – or 360 degree – view of each customer.

Perhaps most importantly, a fully integrated solution like Clari5 is 30% less expensive to operate than traditional fraud and AML/CFT prevention solutions that focus on only one major product line. The return on investment does not just come from minimization of losses through fraud and violations of AML/CFT laws. It also comes from a better, deeper understanding of customer experience.

Clari5 silently monitors all banking transactions with no impact to the transaction lifecycle in the various source systems. The solution then creates various comprehensive scenarios and patterns of possible risk incidents and false positives. It then forms a decision strategy (reject, hold or allow) for each transaction. Any changes or deviations in customer behavior are tracked immediately and presented to the risk management officers as potential problems.

Actual experience of users points to a very high success rate – in terms of accurate identification of problems – and a high return on investment.

Clari5 is ideal for large and medium-sized central or commercial banks. It has been successfully implemented in over 12 financial institutions across multiple countries.
