​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Transforming Transaction Monitoring & Reporting of Suspicious Activity​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Autonomous AML Operations for Compliance Teams

Compliance departments have hit the breaking point. Today’s money laundering and terrorist financing risks are dynamic and fast moving. To stay ahead and address the complex regulatory and legal landscape, AML software solutions must accurately identify and report suspicious transactions while reducing false positives.

AML teams must completely transform the way they work or face increased exposure to risk, fines and reputational damage. To address this shift, it’s time for AML solutions to offer compliance teams more intelligence with less work.

NICE Actimize Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM) Solution

The Actimize Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM) solution combines cutting-edge technology with years of AML human-expertise, helping to ensure accurate alert detection, increased team productivity and lowered compliance program costs. AML automation brings together AI, machine learning and robotic process automation (RPA), the solution enables end-to-end coverage for the detection, scoring, alerting, workflow processing and suspicious activity reporting. As a result, AML departments can more effectively monitor suspicious activities, be confident they’re focusing on the right issues and risks, and automate processes while retaining the power to make the final decision.

Autonomous Transaction Monitoring

Using human-guided supervised and unsupervised machine learning, Actimize provides a unique analytics approach for compliance teams. The approach includes out-of-the-box rules-based models with intelligent segmentation and automated simulation and profiling analytics to identify known risk scenarios, coupled with brand new predictive and anomalous analytics allowing for the discovery of previously unknown money laundering risks. This helps identify hidden relationships between accounts and entities and meet compliance regulations.

Actionable Analytics

Agility in rule analytics and automated threshold management, instead of manual and lengthy tuning efforts, helps teams adapt to fast changing attack trends and respond to new regulations. Models stay up to date to meet changing AML typologies while also ensuring the system is optimized to lower false positives.

Entity Centric Operations

An intuitive dashboard leveraging visual insights and storytelling offers an entity-centric view, making investigations faster and more efficient. Automated investigation processes, increased workflow productivity and predictive capabilities allow teams to cut time spent on low-level administration work and improve investigation accuracy and speed.

Efficient AML Automation

Automation and efficiency in operations that use robotic process automation (RPA) shorten the time it takes to file a suspicious activity report (SAR), freeing up person-power to focus on more valuable tasks. This also reduces or eliminates the need for redundant hardware and other costly IT modules. As a result, teams can more easily apply business intelligence capabilities to their data to test, tune and justify system settings cost-effectively.
