Excerpt: With Verafin now onboard, Old Florida started to streamline their account opening and account review processes. “We used to ask so many questions at account opening. Our experience showed us that 99% of the time that information was not accurate. We felt like it was a waste of time.” Susan continues, “We stopped gathering a lot of customer information up front. Things like up-front risk assessment, attempting to guess future activity. We removed two very labor intensive forms and now rely on Verafin to more accurately risk rate accounts.”

The security team at BankNewport wanted to improve their BSA/AML and fraud processes, but they were lacking the tool to get there. Although the fraud detection group and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) group had a single reporting structure in place, they were still missing that “something”.

Think buying BSA compliance and anti-fraud software from your core provider will lead to an easier integration? So did the team at Beach Business Bank. Twice.

Excerpt: While reviewing her debit card fraud alerts in Verafin one day, June noticed an alert on an account that belonged to a customer who recently passed away. “I noticed that ever since the woman passed away someone had been using her ATM card. This caused us to look into the account and investigate what was going on. That was a major success.”
Headquarters: Pembroke Pines, FL
Excerpt: [...] the state and federal examiners are very pleased with the results, as evidenced by the success of Tropical’s last two examinations. Both went by smoothly with zero findings. “Our last exam, we had a perfect exam. They had literally no findings in our BSA compliance area whatsoever. In the current financial climate that is really amazing. This is due to two things: being conscious of the things we need to do and having Verafin, a great tool, to use.”

Rules-based software vendors are constantly conjuring up new buzz words to disguise the fact that they are offering antiquated technology. There is a simple test: if you are dealing with ‘if/then’ statements or you have to define the dollar value and time frame of the activity you want to catch, you have a rules-based solution. In Thomaston Savings Bank‘s case, the old rules-based software was a leading contributor to the compliance team’s growing aggravation.

In 2006, Industrial Bank decided to install a rules-based software solution to help them automate their manual BSA and AML processes. After three years, Staria Williams, AVP & BSA Officer, felt they needed something more powerful. That's when Industrial Bank started with Verafin.

With $413 million in assets and 50,000+ members, Neighbors Federal Credit Union is one of Louisiana’s largest credit unions. As they continued to grow, Chrissy Viso, VP of Compliance and BSA Officer, knew the institution needed to automate their fraud and suspicious activity detection efforts. When Verafin uncovered a check kiting scheme totaling over $140,000, she knew she chose the right software solution.

Reviewing numerous reports and digging through multiple sources to investigate every case of potential fraud devoured more time than Trisha Hernandez, Supervisor, Risk Management at LGE CCU, had available.
