London, – February 26th, 2017 – HooYu today announced it has partnered with the Fraud investigation team at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, assisting investigators with intelligence work on all fraud investigations.

HooYu Investigate enables the fraud investigation team at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council to provide high quality prevention and detection of fraud on all investigations conducted by the council, including verifying housing register applications and homeless applications.

Using HooYu Investigate instead of traditional investigation tools enables investigators to save time and money on investigations. Unlike other services, HooYu Investigate provides and presents all relevant information in a single, easy-to-navigate graph. This revolutionary platform helps the team to discover hidden connections between people, businesses and addresses.

Michaela Lambart, Senior Fraud Investigator at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council commented: “Historically to gather intelligence has involved using multiple sources of data and then requires someone to compile the information in order to analyse it. HooYu Investigate enables us to conduct investigations using the same data we would normally in one place. We can now easily see the information clearly and also explore the information.  For example, we can now discover name variations or business structures and connections that would have taken significant time to find in a matter of seconds.”

Dominic Blackburn, Product Director of HooYu Investigate commented: “I am delighted to be working with Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, Hooyu Investigate is a really powerful investigation and intelligence tool that builds upon the work we’ve been doing at HooYu and for the past 20 years. Building upon our understanding and publishing of entity information we have created a unique and intuitive way to visualise data means that investigators are now able to really get inside the information and discover much more than was previously possible.”

HooYu Investigate helps investigators to discover crucial information about their subjects at a click and a glance – they can ascertain quickly if the subject lives at the address claimed, whether they are linked to known high-risk addresses, and even to other known fraudsters. It will also reveal properties that they own and any corporate connections, and allow investigators to follow the graph wherever a lead emerges. HooYu Investigate makes sure that investigators have all the information they need inside a service that allows them to explore it efficiently and effectively.
