Sales and Risk Intelligence vendor Artesian Solutions announced three data extensions to its company and contact universe: two U.K. dataset extensions and an Irish dataset. On January 14th, they unveiled their new Connect platform and a broader product vision.
“We’re delighted to kick off 2021 on such a high. These new premium data points are fundamental to the KYC and compliance processes for many of our customers, so it was a logical extension to the data they currently rely on to engage with their customers.“Artesian CEO Andrew Yates
The first data extension is U.K. County Court Judgments (CCJs) and legal notices such as receiverships and winding-up petitions. CCJs are useful for financial services onboarding, due diligence, and risk assessment.
The Adverse Director History dataset assists with KYC/AML processes and highlights whether a Director was previously associated with a firm that ended up in insolvency, administration, or bankruptcy.
Artesian already provides access to other compliance datasets such as Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), terrorist lists, and sanctions lists. Additional details will be released in next week’s platform announcement.
The new Artesian:Connect platform supports custom processing rules and alerting for CCJs and adverse director histories. Data goes back as far as twenty years.
The Irish dataset provides four years of company financials, director checks, and company news. Firmographic data includes addresses, trading status, registration numbers, and auditor information. Company data is available through Artesian Engage, the Artesian Ready app for iOS and Android, Salesforce, and Microsoft Dynamics. Coverage spans 250,000 companies.
Artesian did not publicly disclose the Irish data vendor, but it is a highly credible data source.
Artesian Solutions already provides coverage of Britain, the U.S., and Canada. Customers can license the countries in any combination, including Ireland only, U.K. + Ireland, and all four countries together.
Artesian had a successful 2020 as customers looked for remote vendor solutions for both sales and compliance/onboarding. Usage was up sharply for both product lines. According to Chief Customer Officer Mike Blackadder, Artesian’s “training teams have never been so busy.”
Artesian hosted a virtual summit for its Connect platform on January 14th. Coverage continues tomorrow.
