- Partnership helps drive Supervielle’s digital transformation strategy
Supervielle and Featurespace™, the leading provider of financial crime prevention software, have partnered to provide fraud protection to support Supervielle’s digital transformation strategy by adjusting the banking service model to help customers with their needs and expectations. In addition, the action, which is part of the bank’s ‘Human Banking’ initiative, will put the bank ahead of the growing regulatory requirements expected across the country.
“Our vision is to offer our clients, not only the best and easiest way to operate, but also a way to do it in a safe and reliable way,” said Sabrina Roiter, Executive Manager of Comprehensive Risks. “This vision cannot be achieved without the very best technology to prevent the rising threats of fraud and financial crime. With the addition of Featurespace and their ARIC Risk Hub, we can accelerate our plans and further improve the experience for our customers”.
Featurespace will deploy ARIC™ Risk Hub, their proprietary machine learning ecosystem, across Supervielle’s entire bank. The payment fraud detection and prevention solution will monitor all transactions corresponding to all Supervielle’s digital banking activity.
