In theory, searching for a single name across multiple sanctions/most wanted/watch lists should be straightforward, but this assumes the name searched and the name on the list match exactly. In the real world, it’s important to look beyond the obvious. There may be nicknames, misspellings, missed middle names, and a host of other issues that make searching multiple international lists much more challenging.
Confidam's intelligent search analytics correct for these potential issues though a set of proprietary algorithms. These use state of the art techniques to allow phonetic and fuzzy logic matching over a huge range of name types and lists. Below are some of the ways our search analytics can correct for potential issues to give more accurate searches of both people and companies.
