  • Instead of searching each of these sources one by one, SmartLinx checks all of these sources with the entry of just a single search, saving you countless hours.
  • Having the data is not enough; a provider must also have robust technology to surface the data regardless of how it is entered inthe initial search. For instance, SmartLinx: - Automatically and seamlessly takes spelling variations into account (i.e., Smith and Smyth), name variations (i.e., John and Jonathan), and typographical errors (i.e., Pilgrim and Pilgram) - Automatically searches in the surrounding area to locate an individual (via the SmartLinx radius feature) - Links people and businesses who don’t even have a public records in common - Delivers the information in one easy to read and understand report
  • Even the most advanced researcher can sometimes “slip” and neglect to check a nick name or search across a tri-state (for example) area. SmartLinx reminds the researcher with check boxes to find similar sounding names and radius search, which helps eliminate a situation where a researcher fails to find the target of a search due to poor search logic.
  • Sometimes a search needs to be run as it is entered – whether in a person search where the target has a foreign name or a business search where only the exact corporate identity is sought.
  • As we all know individuals and businesses may not always disclose everything and some things they don’t disclose could greatly impact a business transaction or a casePeople and businesses who are being sued may be hiding assets in states you may not even think to look in spouses names, business names, etc. Smartlinx casts a large net and the search technology uncovers relationships-spouses names, businesses owned , etc. In those names may be where the assets are hidden in states you never thought to look in. SmartLinx can help you find it if is exists.You can utilize the Comprehensive business report to search for an individual to see if they own other businesses they have not disclosed.
