eFraud Services Launches AI Fraud Detection Software

eFraud | June 22, 2022

eFraud
eFraud Services, the leading provider of financial fraud detection software, today announced the launch of its flagship product eFraud Converter. eFraud Converter is an AI-driven, SaaS-based solution solving the problem of the time-consuming and labor-intensive process of analyzing bank statements.

eFraud Converter uses state-of-the-art AI technology to convert pdf images of bank statements into Excel without manual intervention. Once the conversion is complete, users review and correct suspected errors. This is a crucial step because investigators must attest to the accuracy of their reports when testifying in court.

eFraud Converter solves the problem for government agencies and businesses that still rely on paper bank statements to uncover fraudulent activity. These include Law Enforcement, Federal, State and Local Governments, Forensic Accountants, Valuation Specialists and Attorneys.

Currently, detectives and analysts manually type bank statements into Excel, draining valuable time that should be spent conducting investigations. As an alternative, agencies use software that relies on templates or gridding, manual processes that are labor-intensive. eFraud Converter replaces these processes with Artificial Intelligence.

"We reduce the time it takes to analyze bank statements from weeks and months to minutes and hours. With our 'Pay for What You Use' pricing model, any entity can afford to use our application. Since it is browser-based, there is no limit to the number of users who can work concurrently."

Barbara Steinberg, CEO

About eFraud
Barbara Steinberg, CEO, and Robert Hayum, COO, founded eFraud Services Inc. in January 2020. eFraud Services aims to be the provider of choice for any size entity that needs to analyze bank statements quickly, accurately and affordably. eFraud Services is a U.S. company providing fraud detection software to government agencies, law enforcement, forensic accountants and attorneys to help them close more cases in less time with increased efficiency. With feedback from our existing customers, we are developing new applications using Artificial Intelligence to reduce the time it takes to analyze fraud cases by up to 90%.

New Relic Brings Error Tracking into Atlassian Open DevOps Solution

New Relic | August 10, 2022

New Relic , the observability company, today announced it has joined the Atlassian Platform Partner Program as part of the Atlassian Open DevOps solution that integrates Jira Software with popular DevOps tools. New Relic has integrated errors inbox with Jira Software to empower developers to easily access and set up full stack error tracking and software performance monitoring from inside Jira Software, Atlassian’s issue and project management tool. With this integration, developers can create Jira Software issues directly within errors inbox, the New Relic platform functionality for error tracking. This announcement coincides with the launch of the Jira Software toolchain page, which helps developer teams to discover and install DevOps tools to improve DevOps practices across their software development lifecycle. “As applications grow more complex, developers need a system in place to proactively fix errors before the customer experience is impacted,” said Peter Pezaris, SVP, Strategy and User Experience at New Relic. “Errors inbox for Jira Software, which builds on the strong history between New Relic and Atlassian, makes developers’ lives easier by allowing them to get to the root cause faster with full error details — including stack traces — and alerts whenever a critical, customer-impacting error arises. Ticketing is made easier, too, as teams can instantly create Jira Software issues with all the right information, without leaving their error management workflow.” Key benefits and capabilities of the New Relic and Jira Software integration include: Track, triage, and resolve errors in one place: Errors are grouped and displayed on a single screen for visibility and easy triaging. Tackle errors across the full application stack with APM, RUM, Mobile, and Serverless (Lambda Functions) data tracked. Resolve errors before impacting customers: Proactively review and triage errors before they affect customers. Get to the root cause faster with full error details, including stack traces and logs in context, provided in the error inbox. Collaborate across teams: Squash bugs as a team with shared error visibility, shared comments, and an integration with Slack. Create Jira Software issues with a click: With the new integration, set up templates and quickly file Jira ​​Software issues containing error details, associated issues, and direct links to the stack trace and entities in New Relic for easy debugging. “Atlassian and New Relic share a vision to improve the developer experience by meeting users where they are and allowing them to use the tools they know and love. “We are excited to include New Relic errors inbox as an app in the Jira Software toolchain page, which makes it easier for millions of users to discover and connect DevOps apps used throughout the software development lifecycle to fill gaps in the toolchain as their DevOps practices evolve.” Bryant Lee, VP of Partnerships and Developer Experience at Atlassian “We have been really impressed with how New Relic errors inbox offers a single place to track all the errors for the entire stack," said Mudit Mehta, Software Engineer II at Postman. "Errors inbox helps developers save time instead of looking and jumping through multiple tools for cloud-based or external error tracking. With the integration for Jira Software, I can quickly view an error and notify the right team members by filing a templated Jira Software issue in seconds without even leaving the New Relic platform.” The Jira Software toolchain page is the latest collaboration between New Relic and Atlassian. The integration builds on the recent launch of the Bitbucket quickstart in New Relic Instant Observability, which gives engineers visibility into the health and performance of their Bitbucket pipelines to continuously improve and optimize their deployments. Developers can also connect Jira Software to New Relic alerts to help the right teams get the right information in the software development life cycle. Errors inbox for Jira Software is available for free to all New Relic full platform users and Jira Cloud users. For more information, visit www.newrelic.com. Additional integrations for Atlassian’s Connect applications with errors inbox and other capabilities will be available later this year.

New Relic delivers the only unified data platform that empowers engineers to get all telemetry—metrics, events, logs, and traces—paired with powerful full stack analysis tools to help engineers do their best work with data, not opinions.

"Fleet management software will revolutionize companies' ability to digitally transform their business operations, and FleetTrackr is at the forefront of speciality AIoT device management software. "We recognize the need for responsive, flexible, and remotely-operated AI solutions as demand increases for efficient, smart technology." Ravi Kiran, SmartCow CEO Fleet management software is crucial for effective device management and large-scale AI deployments, whether that be for retailers building intelligent stores, or hospitals using AI to improve patient care and administrative workflow. Fleets of IoT devices need to be capable of running unattended with the ability to be reprogrammed with newer versions of device kernels or security updates. Instead of allocating unnecessary resources to reprogram these devices with new software updates, FleetTrackr comes with its own Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) functionality that allows users to provision, manage, maintain, monitor, and update thousands of devices, entirely over-the-air. FleetTrackr's 24/7 remote management includes integrated security and privacy and offers a 30 percent reduction in maintenance, time, and labor costs.

FleetTrackr allows administrators to update all the devices in a desired network with new software without spending weeks planning and executing deployment plans," continued Kiran. "FleetTrackr enables users to not only identify problems with large fleets of devices, but to perform software updates as well as backup and restore firmware when a device turns out to be faulty, making the experience seamless, efficient, and secure." The FleetTrackr Unified Dashboard The FleetTrackr Unified Dashboard (UI) enables users and teams to remotely manage tens of thousands of IoT devices that are in the field. The UI dashboard provides solutions for device management, software management, and issue management.
