Luxembourg, 15 January 2018 - INTRASOFT International, a global ICT company, is proudly announcing the completion of its internal innovation competition, which formed part of the company’s broad 2017 Year of Innovation thematic set of initiatives.
The winning team proposed a solution, by the name of CARMA, that can offer Custom Authorities on a global level advanced risk management services via state-of-the-art technologies in predictive analytics. CARMA employs big data technologies to improve risk identification for known and unknown risks, while at the same time continuing to facilitate trade.
