The CDD module offers advanced features, providing AirPak with enhanced visibility into the various risks associated with customer onboarding and maintenance, ensuring regulatory compliance at every step of the process.
“We are thrilled to extend our LATAM business and to be working with the team at AirPak,” ” said Peter Reynolds, ThetaRay CEO. “Enabling Trusted Global Payments while significantly improving efficiency for our banking and fintech customers is key to our vision, and we’re proud to make this possible for AirPak.”

The groundbreaking solution also improves customer satisfaction, reduces compliance costs, and increases risk coverage. Financial organizations that rely on highly heterogeneous and complex ecosystems benefit greatly from ThetaRay’s unmatchable low false positive and high detection rates.
