Bankruptcy Data Scrubs

In today's heightened regulatory environment, creditors must manage their bankrupt accounts with the utmost care, making certain their portfolios are updated with the latest information. By scrubbing files with AIS, clients can confidently substantiate filings, mitigate put-backs, retrieve current case status and verify specific docket events using our market-leading data and sophisticated matching logic. Clients simply deliver a file containing account information to be scrubbed against our proprietary bankruptcy database. Account information is not retained and the client chooses which notifications to receive and how often they want this performed.

Complete and Dependable Data

AIS' industry-preferred bankruptcy database contains an incomparable breadth of information, proving to be significantly superior to others in the market, in terms of file depth and quality. Updated daily, the AIS bankruptcy database utilizes a direct connection to the Federal Bankruptcy Court System to retrieve all new filings, updates to cases in progress, as well as claims register and creditor matrix data. Simply put, AIS collects all available information for every case dating back to 1948. When performing bankruptcy scrubs, AIS uses a batch process to deliver critical case information including, but not limited to, current status, key dates, court location, chapter, primary/secondary debtor and trustee.

Examples include:

  • Pre-Sale Account Analysis - Identify bankruptcies to mitigate put-backs and enhance pricing accuracy
  • Pending Bankruptcy Confirmation - Substantiate bankruptcies for account holders who have indicated an intention to file
  • General Data Hygiene - Locate bankruptcy activity within newly acquired portfolios
  • Bankruptcy Status Updates - Retrieve the current case status for bankrupt accounts
  • Special Event Identification - Verify if a specific docket event occurred for a list of known bankruptcies
