Data Compliance

Identifying deceased records helps ensure compliance with privacy laws. By accurately identifying and managing deceased records, your business demonstrates adherence to these legal requirements, thereby avoiding potential legal ramifications.

Data Accuracy

Accurate data minimises the chances of errors in customer interactions, such as dealing with bereaved families without knowledge. Being armed with the knowledge that a family member is deceased, builds trust and respect.

Data Trust

For families navigating the grieving process, receiving mail or marketing material addressed to a deceased loved one can reopen emotional wounds and contribute to negative experiences associated with your brand.

Protect against Deceased Identity Fraud

Identities of deceased individuals are often targeted by criminal organisations to create fake accounts or fake I.D’s. These syndicates may use the identity of the deceased to conduct illegal business transactions, apply for credit accounts, mobile phone contracts and much more. This illegal activity can have serious consequences on the bereaved families, your business, but can be prevented with our Australian Death Check solution. This solution is not merely a tool for maintaining data accuracy; it is a critical component of a comprehensive strategy to combat identity fraud and protect both consumers and businesses from its consequential damages.
