UNODC releases a major upgrade of its Anti-Money Laundering software as the total number of users passes 100,000
UNODC released a major upgrade of its Anti-Money Laundering Software goAML today delivering advanced features built on the latest technologies to allow member states to more efficiently and effectively capture and process financial transactions that are used to provide the basis for investigations into money laundering, terrorist financing, human trafficking and other serious offences.
goAML is currently installed in the Financial Intelligence Units of 53 countries around the world who rely on the system to support their investigations. More than 80,000 companies and over 100,000 external users are registered to use the software who have since reported over half a billion suspicious transactions. This makes goAML the largest software project of its kind in the UN and has a userbase more than twice that of Umoja.
As part of the new release, the software is now integrated with the Egmont Group global financial intelligence sharing network as well as providing Next Generation reporting systems that allow each country to customise and adapt their reports to their own unique work flows.
Developed by the Software Products for Member States (SPMS) team at UNODC, the code development phase coincided with COVID-19 lockdown, and despite the many challenges during this time the developers persevered to ensure the implementation and testing targets were met as well as refactoring the delivery of the training to online webinars and e-Learning videos.
Director, Division for Management, Dennis Thatchaichawalit, has congratulated the goAML Team in Vienna on this key development.
