Kris Finsoftware and CustomerXPs Launch Clari5, voted Best Fraud Detection Product for Extreme Real-time Fraud Management, for Asia Pacific Banks


Singapore / Manila, 26 July. Subsequent to CustomerXPs’ Clari5 being voted 'Best Fraud Detection Product' at the Annual OpRisk Awards in London in June 2016, Kris Finsoftware and CustomerXPs have announced a customized version of the acclaimed product available directly to banks in Asia Pacific to meet their specific requirements. Kris Finsoftware and CustomerXPs have been collaborating extensively on product customization for Asia Pacific’s key countries and have incorporated significant changes in the customized product based on specific market intricacies.

This announcement comes in the wake of banks in the Asia Pacific region witnessing a spate of serious and sophisticated fraud. With the frequency of instances on the rise, banks have begun actively exploring innovative cross-channel real-time fraud management products, given the flaws and inadequacies of conventional channel silo-based products.

Meanwhile there has been decisive action by Central Banks in the region to further mitigate vulnerability and implement stronger lines of defense, the most recent by Singapore's central bank, MAS. MAS announced a new anti-money-laundering department after it ordered the local arm of a Swiss bank to shut down operations in relation to a laundering and bribery probe. The nature of sophisticated frauds and the current situation both demand that banks look beyond mere regulatory compliance and consider unconventional approaches to tackling financial fraud.

Built to meet the cross-channel fraud detection, investigation, prevention, monitoring compliance and audit needs of banks, CustomerXPs’ flagship product Clari5 differentiates itself by using a 'human brain like' approach to fraud and implements a 'central nervous system' that pollinates data from across the bank's systems to deliver true, real-time intelligence.

Clari5 has been transforming Fraud Management and Customer Experience Management in Fortune 500 banks by harnessing the power of extreme real-time intelligence. Besides the OpRisk recognition Clari5 was also very recently 'positioned as an Enterprise Solution' by premier analyst firm Chartis in the 2016 RiskTech Quadrant for Enterprise Fraud Technology.
