GlobalCollect Selects Alaric's Fractals for Enterprise Risk Management

Amsterdam and London, 04 December 2012: Alaric International, a leading global supplier of fraud prevention and payments solutions, today announced that GlobalCollect, the world's premier payment service provider, has selected its Fractals Fraud Integration Hub as its 'on premises' fraud detection and prevention solution.

Fractals will be deployed as an enterprise risk management system to identify fraud risk, mitigate and prevent loss to GlobalCollect in its business as a global B2B e-commerce payment services provider. GlobalCollect will use Fractals to combat Enterprise Risk and monitor merchant credit risk.

One of GlobalCollect's key requirements was for an "on-premises" solution - data within GlobalCollect's internal systems is a critical factor in assessing transaction risk, a SaaS-based approach relying solely on external data was not workable for GlobalCollect. A true real time system was essential, enabling GlobalCollect to intercept fraudulent and risky transactions in flight, thus minimising fraud losses. And with a short delivery timescale, it was critical that the required functionality be provided within a readily available packaged solution.

According to Mike Alford, Alaric's CEO, "GlobalCollect had a demanding set of requirements - a high performance, "on-premises" enterprise risk solution, to be delivered real time-enabled within a tight 90 day timescale. Alaric's Fractals Fraud Integration Hub solution met virtually all GlobalCollect's requirements out-of-the-box, enabling us to meet their demanding delivery schedule with a tried and tested solution."

Stephen Buechner, CRO of GlobalCollect added, "We thoroughly evaluated all the leading fraud solutions and discovered that Alaric was unique in offering an "on-premises" fraud hub combined with having a high level of CNP fraud domain expertise plus a highly effective approach to project management and delivery. Proprietary data analytics is a key aspect of our competitive edge so it was critical for us to have a solution in which all fraud and risk data could be retained on-premises rather than shared with an external service provider. Another major advantage of working with Alaric is that they could deliver such a complex system, integrated for true real time operation, within a short 90 day delivery window. This was truly remarkable."
