By evolving the technology, EAT will improve functionality of the tools which assist law enforcement and managers ensure employees comply with anti-fraud regulations and violators are caught.
By helping filter incoming reports to separate the wheat from the chaff, EAT will help recipients avoid overload and disappointment.
By analyzing anonymized data about reports, EAT will improve managers’ understanding of the role whistleblowing can play in the anticorruption fight.
By marketing the reports mechanisms, EAT will expand awareness about the availability of reports lines and their use and help prevent fraud by a perception of increased probability of exposure.
