LEXForensics started out in 2016 with its core focus on providing truth verification services through its forensic call centre: equipped with Layered Voice Analysis software and trained forensic analysts. To complement the LVA validation solution we offer to our insurance clients, we expanded our service to include the second phase of handling risky insurance claims: desktop investigations. It is our investigative skills that provided us with a great advantage in providing yet another supplementary service: tracing. Initially we were only focussed on third-party and debtor tracing but have since extended our services to include beneficiary tracing for several funds. Our unique approach to tracing has significantly increased our successful tracing ratio when compared to industry norms, which is why we are fast becoming the leader in our field.
