From press releases
Silicon Valley analytic software firm FICO announced that GVNG, a technology platform for nonprofits, will use the FICO TONBELLER Siron suite of anti-money laundering and know your customer solutions.
Based in Los Angeles, GVNG will use the FICO “regtech” solutions to carry out risk-based checks on people setting up charities, making donations, receiving payments and volunteering services, and to provide immediate alerts when any suspicious transactions take place.
“When it comes to preventing money laundering and knowing our customers, we wanted to go beyond the letter of the law to truly ensure that we weed out organizations or individuals that could have criminal intent,” said Dominic Kalms, president and CEO of GVNG.
“For example, we wanted to put safeguards in place to prevent sexual predators from registering as volunteers, and make sure money launderers or terrorist financers are not using our clients’ services or receiving funds,” Kalms said. “With our ambitious goal to sign up 2,000 programs in the next year, we needed a scalable solution we could use in the cloud, without increasing our team’s workload.”
“Organizations like GVNG have limited internal resources to manage compliance, so a cloud implementation ensures that they will stay up to date and compliant,” said Torsten Mayer, vice president of risk and compliance solutions for FICO.
