Callcredit launches 'Three Sixty Suite' to help in fighting fraud locally

The government has recently published its latest in a series of recommendations and changes to local government fraud prevention. The debate and planning around implementation continues, but the direction is clear - a changing role for local government in fraud prevention and detection.

Ultimately this will mean local authorities will have to do more to prevent fraud, more work on acknowledging its impact, more work on prevention and more work on pursuing the fraudsters. All of which will also mean local authorities working much more closely with central government on fraud prevention benefits - but having the right tools at their disposal is also key to tackling the changes.

As part of its ongoing efforts to help local authorities collect more taxes, stop fraud and reduce costs leading Public Sector Solutions provider Callcredit will today (10th May 2012) at The LAIOG Annual Fraud Conference outline the challenges facing local authorities and how through its new suite of products 'Three Sixty' will help fight fraud locally in three effective steps, Acknowledge, Prevent and Pursue.

Callcredit's Director of Public Sector, Andrew Davis said, "Callcredit welcomes the governments new agenda and we believe it will really help local authorities to reduce fraud losses. However we also recognise that many local authorities don't have the right tools to help them deliver on this aggressive agenda.  Local authorities now more than ever need the correct tools at their disposal in order to rise to this challenge. We genuinely believe that our new 'Three Sixty suite' of products can deliver the level of insight needed to help improve effectiveness and reduce costs. "

The suite of products 'Three Sixty Tenant View', Three Sixty Online, Three Sixty Council Tax View and Three Sixty Fraud Hub are a series of products that will, together, comprise a complete suite and offer a complete solution to filling the hole in local government finances.

David Magor, CEO of IRRV added, "Improving the effectiveness of fraud detection and prevention has always been seen as a key objective for local authorities particularly in terms of reducing costs. Stopping fraud clearly demonstrates that those local authorities who implement effective strategies are recognised as good stewards of public resources which in many cases delivers' real financial savings".
