“Implementing Optio allowed us to streamline our processes. Without it, we would not have been able to cope with the increase in the number of referrals received. Optio allows me to regularly review workloads and keep on top of investigations. The use of the workflow ensures constant dialogue and direction. FIS have been extremely supportive of suggestions to develop and improve the product, ensuring that it’s fit for purpose.”

“The transition of our current vetting and intelligence databases over to Gatekeeper and Optio went very smoothly and we are now using both of these applications with ease. The communication in relation to this was superb and all of our requests were satisfied. There was a fair bit of preparation work on the Gatekeeper side of things as there are so many more “rules” in vetting to think of. We are still finding our feet and each additional request for reports, etc. is acted upon effectively and to our satisfaction.”
