Accuity has introduced enhancements to Private File Creator, its database management tool designed for customised interdiction screening. Central to this new release is increased capacity and additional file creation capability. When a user is ready to create a file, the company says they now have a myriad of options allowing them to create a specific file for their screening needs. Additonal features of the new release include enhanced access security requirements, the ability to accommodate FinCEN data for USA PATRIOT Act 314(a) compliance and increased control over the way data can be automatically manipulated. The company has also launched updates to its screening engine, FACFilter. Enhancements to the Java, Windows and Mainframe versions of this solution have been designed to include greater information storage, upgraded compatibility and enhanced screening algorithms, which should enable users to improve their compliance programmes.
