Innovation. Integrity. Impact.
Verato™ was founded with the goal of rightly identifying individuals regardless of whether their names, addresses or other personal information was incorrect or out-of-date. Our core technology is based on algorithms and methods used in counter-terrorism operations, finding suspects regardless of what identities they assumed. We saw a broader market application to use that technology for solving the pervasive challenge of customer matching.
Using our unique and secure SaaS-based platform, our products clean, update, and link customer, patient or employee records within and across systems. Powered by CARBON, which accesses over one billion commercially available identity records, this is being done with greater accuracy than ever before. We deliver sub-second performance and can securely handle hundreds of millions of transactions to support the largest organizations, both public and private.
And, since it’s SaaS-based, Verato delivers quick time-to-value (weeks, not months or years) and a lower total cost of ownership than any of the on-premises solutions being used today. Better, cheaper, faster.
