Monitoring and Alerts
WorldWatchPlus® Monitoring provides portfolio monitoring that systematically stores processed inquiries and automatically searches each subject using the original criteria against the refreshed data collected. If/when a subject appears in records while monitored, the solution sends an immediate notification to the email address of the account specified recipient with a link to the new search results for review and adjudication.
Account Management & Compliance
WorldWatch Plus® makes it easy for larger organizations to create and manage multiple accounts with varying levels of access control to support numerous offices world-wide, while still maintaining central compliance oversight. User audit reports are available for access control changes, user search history, and login/logout activity. For compliance management, required search lists can be selected by account to ensure that at least the required search lists are always processed regardless of user search parameter selection,
WorldWatchPlus® Case Management provides easy to use and audit friendly access to all account usage and transactional history details.
Intelligent Batch Processing
WorldWatchPlus® Intelligent Batch Processing compares each subject entry to the account’s open cases to identify duplicates. The system analyzes the new search criteria for updates and will only process the entry if changes are identified. This innovative process eliminates the need for costly pre-batch data parsing to avoid duplicate cases per subject while ensuring a streamlined audit trail. In addition, subscription pricing is reduced by avoiding unnecessary and duplicate transactions.
WorldWatchPlus® Automated Adjudication allows your resources to bypass timely adjudication on entries that the system was unable to find a possible match for. Instead, the case for those subjects is automatically closed with a final status and immediately begins the daily monitoring process.
Custom List Processing
WorldWatch Plus® subscribers have total control of which sources are searched at all times. When predetermined product groups or source sub-categories provide more than what a user requires, the “Custom Source List” tool allows users to create a specific group of sources, name it as desired and utilize it anytime. This streamlines the adjudication process and eliminates unnecessary screening of a subject.
WorldWatch Plus® is easily integrated into your platform of choice. XML Web Service APIs are available for searching and capturing results back into your own system. Schemas and documentation are available to subscribers.
WorldWatch Plus® Automatically Translates or Transliterates Subject Names
WorldWatch Plus® searches performed using Non-Latin character sets are automatically translated or transliterated to English utilizing natural language processing and enabling sophisticated multi-lingual search capabilities. WorldWatch Plus® also supports Chinese Commercial Codes.
Adding New or Unique Sources to WorldWatch Plus®
WorldWatch Plus® subscribers may submit source(s) not currently included in search processing to our Analytic Team for review and timely implementation. If approved as an applicable source, it will be added to the source list within 10 business days with no cost to the subscriber.*
* Only pass-thru fees for accessing data may be charged to client post-approval. If the data is public and free to access, the subscriber pays nothing for programming to add the source to the WW+ solution.
All government agencies and official source list names are disclosed to all WorldWatch Plus® subscribers and always accessible in the “Source Look-Up” tool. Risky guessing and assumptions of watch list and PEP coverage is a part of the past; users know exactly what is covered and can prove it for FCPA purposes. All sources can be assessed through country, agency and/or official acronym specific queries and exported and/or printed as needed to support sales efforts.

Global Adverse Media
WorldWatch Plus® collects thousands of global news sources, capturing articles of interest from breaking news, current events and relevant media dating back to the early 1900s. This gives subscribers the ability to perform enhanced due diligence on a subject (person or business entity).
This product provides negative media and is based on a proprietary process that searches for data matches of thousands of adverse “Key Word Strings” to obtain results. The focus of these data extracts is 100% behavioral and not collected based only on a subject’s name. This process exposes any and all subjects that would be considered a person of interest, but does not return unwarranted information. It only returns data of concern, which streamlines the adjudication process for the user every time it is utilized. This functionality is many times more dynamic than the delimited data files obtained through similar solutions.
Our Adverse Media repository contains millions of articles and is constantly growing. By searching breaking news, users are provided with an early warning on persons of interest. In most cases, a significant amount of time elapses before official watch lists and PEP records are updated with news that is occurring today. This service will effectively bridge that gap and mitigate your risk.

This data includes the history of persons of political interest dating as far back as the 1700s and does not require the use of manually managed databases that in most cases lack critical details; these records are maintained directly from official authorities.
Today, the Politically Exposed Person Product includes target data from over 1,100 sources with over 3 million global records and is continuously enhanced with newly identified data. A limited Sample of PEP Sources: CIA World Leaders List, the European Parliament Directory, World Statesman, Rulers and over 1,000 others to identify past subjects, along with the most current and active PEPs today.
