Automating Trade

Rules and Compliance Engine

Traydstream enables banks and corporates to automate the manual scrutiny of trade finance documentation.
We combine Machine-learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Natural Language Processing (NLP) to create intelligent pattern recognition and near-instant verification of regulatory compliance.

The platform replaces the current model of manual scrutiny with 4 levels of automatic checks to the extracted data:
  1. Blank / missing fields
  2. Discrepancies between documents – checking for inconsistencies
  3. Rules Engine: 225,000+ machine learning algorithms applied checking for adherence to ICC trade rules
  4. Compliance module (e.g. sanctions lists)

The benefits

  • Efficiency – supercharge your trade finance operations
  • Cost-effective – remove laborious and costly manual processing
  • Knowledge transfer – reduce the risk of knowledge drain
