Meow Case Study: Enabling Self-Serve Sign-Up Without Increasing Risk

Meow Case Study: Enabling Self-Serve Sign-Up Without Increasing Risk

Meow TrueBiz Case Study

Meow Technologies, a leading financial technology company providing business banking solutions, was experiencing rapid growth with over $1 billion in assets on the platform and almost $30M investment in the company from prestigious investors like QED Investors. To sustain and accelerate this growth, Meow aimed to implement a self-serve sign-up process for businesses. 

Meow knew that a strictly manual verification process would not scale, could create bottlenecks, and could be prone to human error. Ensuring the authenticity and credibility of new businesses in a more self-service manner was a complex challenge that needed a sophisticated, automated solution to augment the existing team and streamline compliance reviews.

Solution: TrueBiz - Streamlining Compliance Reviews with Automated Risk Assessment

To address these challenges, Meow partnered with TrueBiz to leverage their advanced business risk assessment and fraud detection capabilities. TrueBiz provides a solution seamlessly embedded into Alloy that automated the review of business web presence, using proprietary AI models to analyze hundreds of data points across a business’ web presence and deliver a detailed risk score within seconds.

TrueBiz's configurable decision logic allows Meow to tailor the risk assessment process to their specific needs, ensuring accurate and reliable evaluations of new businesses signing up through the self-serve portal. This automation enables Meow to efficiently handle the lowest-risk cases while significantly enhancing the efficiency of their compliance team’s review.

Results: Enhanced Scalability and Security

Augmented Compliance Team Efficiency and Improved Fraud Detection

With TrueBiz's automation, Meow is able to streamline its compliance reviews, allowing the existing team to focus on higher-risk and more complex cases. TrueBiz's comprehensive risk assessments identified high-risk businesses early in the process, significantly reducing the risk of fraud. The accuracy of TrueBiz's assessments ensures that only credible businesses were approved, enhancing the overall security of the platform.
