At Merlon, we continue to advance the solution for identifying and mitigating risk through adverse media screening, reducing review effort and maximizing the effectiveness of risk detection.
In our latest release, we have improved the design of the investigation page to streamline your review process and added an investigation summary that helps you keep track of your investigation outcomes. These improvements expand on our mission to provide the most effective and efficient negative news solution for AML, KYC, and Enhanced Due Diligence.
New Investigation Page allows you to review adverse media in a structured fashion
After we have completely revamped Merlon’s homescreen, we are now introducing a brand new investigation page:
1. Use arrow buttons to move between Findings
You can use arrow buttons to navigate between Findings and their related articles. This allows you to quickly remediate all the Pending Findings and to move them either to the Relevant or Dismissed section.
2. Determine credibility of information directly from the Finding card
Merlon’s global library consists of thousands of trusted and curated publishers. We know it is sometimes important to know the article’s source to determine its credibility. Now, the publisher of the latest article appears in the Finding card to save you an extra click.
3. Articles are presented in a structured timeline
Unlike other adverse media platforms, Merlon groups related articles into Findings to avoid reading the same story repeatedly and to provide comprehensive and structured information in one place. This is a powerful tool that significantly reduces your review effort.
Now, all the related articles are presented in a structured timeline so it is easier to understand their sequence:
Investigation summary helps you keep track of your review outcomes
Now, you can add an investigation summary to sum up the adverse media findings as well as to describe the logic behind your remediation. Also, you can add the key evidence that has led you to the final decision.
Investigation summary can be added before the investigation is closed and its content will appear on the first page of the investigation report.
We hope that you will enjoy these improvements and if you haven’t done so already, sign up for a free trial or contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
