In practice

How do our OFAC screening solutions actually work in the field? Our OFAC-compliant users know.


“Great tool for quick and easy vetting of vendors.”

The platform is extremely easy to use and there are many different search options for exact matches or fuzzy search which allows you to search for nicknames or similar names. This makes the denied party screening process easy. Best part is if there are any changes to the search results, I get daily email updates to re-review.


“Descartes Denied Party Screening has made sanctions screening so simple!”

Descartes Denied Party Screening helps prevent the business from engaging with sanctioned clients, which is extremely important, especially when working with an international company. What’s most helpful about the tool is that it can integrate with other platforms like Salesforce and NetSuite.
