Conformance Enhances PreComm ToolKit with TransUnion ID Manager

Merchant Due Diligence and Risk Assessment Streamlined Prior to

RENO, Nev.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="" target="_blank"gt;#Breachlt;/agt;–Conformance
, a fast-growing provider of operating systems,
education systems and expertise used in managing business compliance
requirements, today announced it has enhanced its PreComm ToolKit
offering with TransUnion
capabilities. PreComm ToolKit is a cloud-based data
collection and consolidation service that simplifies the merchant due
diligence and risk evaluation process prior to payment processing
onboarding, while addressing the difficulties associated with the Know
Your Customer (KYC) compliance requirements of Anti-Money Laundering
(AML) rules, The USA Patriot Act and card brand regulations. Merchant
acquirers and payment processors gain protection from deceitful entities
before unwittingly granting payment system access, while saving time and
money related to manual, labor-intensive, paper-based workflows. PreComm
ToolKit gathers and collates a complete underwriting data pull in as
little as 30 seconds, including credit scores and business stress and
risk indicators.

“We are excited to collaborate with TransUnion to identify unscrupulous
businesses before merchant onboarding ever takes place,” said Darrel
Anderson, president of Conformance Technologies. “By adding TransUnion’s
ID Manager capabilities, PreComm ToolKit enables risk managers to make
better and smarter business decisions during the risk and underwriting
process,” added Anderson. “This decreases costs to clients, reduces
workloads and inaccuracies, plus allows for real-time monitoring

“ID Manager’s identity and device verification plus identity
authentication capabilities are nice additions to PreComm ToolKit,” said
Chris Cartwright, executive vice president of U.S. Information Services
for TransUnion. “We are pleased to partner with Conformance Technologies
to give acquirers confidence that the merchants they board for payment
processing have been properly vetted through rigorous upfront
screening,” added Cartwright.

PreComm ToolKit automatically and accurately gathers more than 60
merchant risk data factors via deep, thorough and accurate
investigation. Findings are consolidated and presented in dashboard
format to enable significantly more accurate evaluation by risk
managers. Risk data factors include corporate ownership documentation
verification; Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and Employer
Identification Number (EIN) matching; Terminated Merchant File (TMF)
review; Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) review; illicit,
prohibited and illegal activity scanning results; and much more.
