The Problem

Fraud was Grounding Global Growth

Fareportal, an online travel agency with the third-highest U.S. monthly traffic, needed to reduce fraud, more efficiently process good customers, and better utilize siloed third-party data. With bookings in the billions and serving nearly 200 countries, they required a robust, scalable solution to more efficiently detect and prevent fraud, and enhance the customer experience.

The client was looking to address four primary challenges:

  1. Inability to expand into geographies with high incidence of fraud,
  2. Higher levels and sophistication of fraud activity,
  3. Corresponding increase in case management workload,
  4. Acquired third-party data housed in disparate silos and apps.
