We have developed our own proprietary four phase approach to working with our clients we call our "Total Risk Management Methodology" that looks beyond simply reducing financial risk such as chargebacks.

Our Total Risk Management Methodology allows us to specialize in building balanced strategic solutions that encompass the four fundamental considerations of a Risk Management Solution: Financial Risk, Sales Conversion, Solution Cost and Brand Risk. This means we don't just prevent fraud loss, we show our clients how to prevent fraud loss in the most economical, efficient and practical way for their particular vertical markets.
