Ocrolus Launches Comprehensive Fraud Detection Solution for Lenders
Ocrolus, the document and data analysis platform empowering lenders to make faster, more accurate lending decisions, today announced the launch of Ocrolus Detect, a comprehensive fraud detection solution for lenders. Detect provides high-quality, decision-ready data that can help lenders minimize risk and prevent losses.

Lenders traditionally perform manual review of documents to inspect for file tampering, document manipulation, inconsistencies, and other suspicious activity. This time consuming, tedious, and error-prone process can result in significant losses. Ocrolus Detect automates fraud workflows, providing detailed signals and clear visualizations of fraudulent activity undetectable to the human eye.

"Detecting fraud is mission critical to our business, and Ocrolus is uniquely qualified to provide a comprehensive fraud solution with its focus on lending, Fraudulent behavior needs to be caught in our underwriting process and Detect has proven to be a highly effective insight tool for our team."

- Zack Whitaker, Risk Operations at AtoB, a fintech company modernizing payments infrastructure for trucking and logistics

Detect indicates where file tampering has occurred on a document, what fields were modified, and how they were changed to provide the necessary level of context for more informed lending decisions. Detect also visualizes file tampering on documents received and often can recover the original document for fraud analysts to easily spot the modified fields.

Ocrolus processes millions of lending documents weekly, which enables the company to train its machine learning models with a unique and nuanced understanding of file structure and key data. During a customer beta program, Detect accurately uncovered four times more potential fraud than a leading competitor.

As the lending industry shifts to digital loan application processes, fraud is rapidly increasing and becoming more difficult for humans to catch, Detect enables lenders to quickly and confidently process more loans by proactively providing them with clear and reliable fraud signals, said John Forrester, SVP of Product at Ocrolus.
