In today's digital world, preventing fraud is more important than ever, especially for title and escrow companies handling sensitive information and large dollar amounts.

It seems like every week there is a new software solution in the title and escrow industry aimed at identity verification and fraud prevention, but most of those solutions focus on the end of the closing process.

At CloseSimple, we proactively help title and escrow companies detect potential fraud at the start of the transaction, not just a few days before closing. Our revolutionary feature, Early Scan, tackles fraud aggressively from the beginning. Let’s dive into how it works and why it’s essential for protecting your business.

How Early Scan Works

The Early Scan feature is designed to catch potential fraud threats right at the start of a transaction. Here’s how it works: 

  1. AI-Powered Detection within 3-Seconds of Opening a File: With artificial intelligence, Early Scan keeps learning and adapting to new fraud tactics. This means it can quickly identify and handle even the latest fraud schemes within 3 seconds of opening a file in your Title Production Software.

  2. Real-Time Analysis: Early Scan uses advanced algorithms to analyze transaction data instantly. This quick analysis helps spot suspicious patterns or unusual activities that might signal fraud.

  3. Comprehensive Data Review: It looks at a wide range of data, including transaction history, user behavior, and context. This thorough check ensures a high accuracy rate in detecting fraud.

  4. Automated Alerts: If potential fraud is detected, the system automatically sends alerts to the relevant people. This allows for quick action to stop fraudulent transactions before they go through.

Why Early Scan is Important

  1. Proactive Fraud Prevention: Early Scan helps you stay ahead by catching threats early, preventing fraud from causing significant damage.

  2. Enhanced Security: With real-time monitoring and AI-driven analysis, Early Scan boosts the security of your transactions, building trust with your clients and partners.

  3. Cost Efficiency: Stopping fraud early saves money by reducing costs related to chargebacks, legal fees, and damage to your reputation.

  4. Compliance and Risk Management: Early Scan helps you meet regulatory requirements for fraud prevention and risk management, ensuring your business stays compliant and avoids penalties.

  5. Customer Confidence: Knowing their transactions are monitored and protected by advanced fraud detection tools increases customer confidence, crucial for long-term relationships.
