How HooYu Investigate Works
HooYu Investigate is a web-based platform that links UK people, businesses and addresses together in a visual graph that reveals otherwise hidden connections. This makes for faster more effective investigations.
Traditional investigation tools tend to be in list format, making it very hard to discern relevant links between data elements.
HooYu Investigate is different. We connect 105 million people, 14 million businesses, 32 million UK addresses. Plus, 30 million mobile phone numbers and 18 million email addresses in a single graph comprising of trillions of interconnecting links.
Each search generates a visual graph with the search subject at its centre. The graph instantly reveals a summary of all known connections to the subject and the nature of those connections. You can reveal and hide all connections or just the types that interest you.
You can traverse the graph in any direction adding new degrees of separation as you go. Link types include addresses, current and previous co-occupants, company directorships and shareholdings, telephone numbers and email addresses.
You can even discover how two records are linked by using our “Shortest Path” tool to find the path between any two records.
HooYu Investigate is used across a wide array of sectors, including fraud investigations, law enforcement, AML/KYC, due diligence, debt collection, tracing and asset reunification.
In addition to the visual graph, the right-hand rail allows users to dig deeper into a particular person or business to find things such as court judgments, insolvency, mortality, property ownership or if required, a detailed Background Report.
