Epic Concepts



Better Together

TraceSmart can be combined with our national-criminal search, CrimSmart, to create a comprehensive name and jurisdiction development solution that surpasses a typical nat crim alias search. The combined solution is built on a machine learning model that produces high-confidence tips and leads and outperforms an a la carte pointer workflow.
