The partnership’s objective

Considering TangoPay’s current expansion plans, the company needed to adopt a highly automated solution to replace the rule-based monitoring solution that could prevail over evolving compliance demands and enable it to deliver trusted services.

By acquiring ThetaRay’s technology, TangoPay has access to advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities that help address the complex issues of the remittance industry. According to the company’s officials, TangoPay’s increasing customer base and transaction volumes influenced their decision to integrate a solution that can detect potential risks and threats without compromising the quality of service. The collaboration highlights TangoPay’s commitment to improve its service, while also providing customers with a secure and trusted method to send and receive money.

TangoPay’s main objective is to increase financial inclusion through accessible digital services that eliminate barriers for low-income earners and unbaked individuals. Working towards these goals, the company leverages ThetaRay’s artificial intelligence solutions to grow its revenue, ensure a high level of customer service, and enlarge its customer base with banks, fintechs, and regulators.

Based on a proprietary form of AI, ThetaRay’s cloud-based transaction monitoring and screening system replaces human bias to oversee financial transactions. Moreover, it enables fintechs and banks to implement a risk-based approach to identify suspicious activity and create a full picture of customer identities, including across complex, cross-border transaction paths. SONAR enables rapid discovery of both known and unknown money laundering threats. According to company data, this results in a 90% reduction in false positives compared to legacy rules-based solutions.
