Fraud and Error

Keeping your information secure
Transforming public sector services through the power of digital

Helping you detect fraud

Every year in the UK, fraud and error costs public services an estimated £31bn, the equivalent of £500 for every person in Britain. But with the right tool, you can use the data people submit to detect mistakes or fraud. You can then stop incorrect payments and wasted effort. You save time, resources and money.

Fujitsu has developed a unique assessment tool that uses data analytics to assess the risk of error or fraud. It’s easy to deploy because there’s no need for complex integration. And it’s possible to run a proof-of-value test through government frameworks. Both central government and local councils have or are using the solution. For example, following proof-of-value exercises, the tool has been used to assess applications for services such as housing benefits.

Fujitsu’s smart fraud and error detection has:

  • Saved Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) over £540m.
  • Saved a local council £500,000, by highlighting high risk applications at a success rate of 57%.
  • Helped another local council identify housing tenancy fraud. Prevention is better than a cure. We can help you make use of the data at your disposal, and create more efficient processes.
