AI outsmarts financial crime – a case study
Worldpay achieved “astronomical” results and changed the way they do business: 30% more transactions, 20x fewer false positives, 25x fewer daily alerts, 3x greater fraud detection.
Worldpay turned to Brighterion to help them with anti-money laundering (AML), counter terrorism financing (CTF), financial fraud and compliance, before thousands of people converged on London for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Brighterion worked with Worldpay to build a new working model within six weeks. Brighterion’s self-learning AI platform reduced business rules by 200 times and false positives 20 times, while increasing fraud detection over 3x. Today, Worldpay processes 20 billion transactions a year with ease and has rolled out Brighterion AI to other business divisions.
One of the deciding factors for Worldpay was that Brighterion’s platform is built on a distributed file system, enabling endless scalability with no single point of failure. Brighterion customers benefit from 99.9999% uptime.
“Worldpay is massively bigger than it was in 2011. Part of the business case was scalability and we could see how we could expand with the Brighterion system and the fact that we could start putting more and more through.”
