Ground Truth Intelligence, a new global intelligence and investigations marketplace platform, has now been formally launched. With the business headquartered in London, the platform itself was born in response to market feedback, chiefly received from investigations and intelligence managers in corporations, banks, law firms and consultancies commenting on how investigations, due diligence and other corporate intelligence requirements have been serviced.
According to Ground Truth Intelligence, the prevailing industry business model has changed little in 50 years. The business duly offers an alternative to the old approach through its proprietary technology platform which provides access to “the best investigators and intelligence sources” across 200-plus jurisdictions and underpinned by 1,000-plus independent resources (ie ‘Network Partners’).
The Ground Truth Intelligence solution connects clients rapidly and directly to “the best-placed resources” for executing requirements involving anything from document retrieval through to sensitive Human Resources enquiries. The business also flows all information securely, with detailed finished reporting to specific raw information. Document retrieval/site visits are part of the overall mix.
This new, technology-enabled approach is said to afford clients “maximum control” over the “frequently opaque” process of information gathering and significantly reduces the delays, costs, risks and poor results that can often be associated with sourcing investigative support across multiple jurisdictions and requirements.
Ultimately, Ground Truth Intelligence’s end goal is to enable clients to access ethically sourced intelligence and investigative resources seamlessly in any relevant jurisdiction in the world.
As is the case with many sectors, rapid change is being experienced across the global intelligence and investigations market. For its part, Ground Truth Intelligence wants to position itself at the core of change in the industry as the latter moves from a high-cost and opaque model to a lean, transparent and technology-enabled outcome.
Stewart Kelly, founder and CEO of Ground Truth Intelligence, informed Security Matters: “The intelligence and investigations industry is a very late bloomer when it comes to technology adoption. We are the first marketplace platform for intelligence and investigations resources and offer a distinct alternative to the existing model for sourcing investigative support around the world.”
Kelly added: “We reduce cost by removing middlemen. We improve quality by dint of clear sourcing and direct engagement with the person doing the work. We also reduce risk as all necessary information is generated by vetted providers and passes through the platform, enabling maximum data security and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.”
