Leading-edge technology, guided by human intelligence
Our raw material is public record data retrieved from currently over 350 official sources across Africa and the wider Middle East, either by automated online document extraction, bulk uploads of registry data or in-person collection from the relevant registry.
Intelligent data curation
Powered by cutting edge data engineering combined with human intelligence, our curation process ensures that we present accurate and reliable profiles, allowing users to identify stakeholders, search for UBOs, and power their KYC / AML processes.
Our database is constantly growing both in response to client demand and through meticulously verified data acquisition as we identify new authoritative data sources in the region.
Only official sources
We use only primary, authoritative sources from which we capture external content.
In this way we ensure accuracy and compliance with generally accepted global standards for sourcing information required for due-diligence processes. These sources include:
- Corporate Registers
- Official Gazettes
- Compliance Documents
- Securities & Exchange Commissions
- Federal and Local Courts
- Professional Bodies (inc. Chambers of Commerce)
- Investment Authorities
- Special Economic Zones
- Land Registries
