We provide Compliance and Due Diligence Software and Services to businesses and consumers

What We Do

CDD Services Ltd delivers compliance and identity management products that address the practical issues faced by our clients, including combatting modern slavery within supply chains. We understand that a wide range of agencies and businesses want to drive better recruitment and better working practices whilst, at the same time, improving communication to protect the most vulnerable in society.

Our experience at CDD Services has been gained within global financial institutions, focusing on Know Your Customer, credit risk, fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing. We now use that knowledge and technology to encourage compliance with government policy in relation to the defence of communities, businesses and individuals. In addition, our services reward engagement with the vulnerable and disenfranchised in order to help identify risks of abuse, radicalisation and potential criminality.

Our Approach

Our approach and motivation are to work in partnership with others in support of the UK Government’s Safeguarding policy agenda. In addition, we want to work with those internationally who want to advance the UN Sustainable Goals by 2030 specifically Goal 16 - the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.

There are many barriers to developing Regulation Technology (RegTech) to enable such a world, though none are technical. They are cultural, legal, political and ultimately power related. Most RegTech is developed to implement regulation, not deliver social change. We believe in a different approach.

In our view, all technology is knowledge. Context and intention are everything. We also understand the importance of culture in making any strategy and change work. Consequently, we set ourselves a challenge: if technologists can make computers so simple that a child can use a smartphone, why can’t we do the same with compliance?

To this end, we provide three complementary apps available on smartphone, tablet and web:

  • Spotlite: the compliance management system for businesses. Spotlite provides facilities to recruit, on-board and monitor employees, tenants, customers and suppliers
  • RealYou: a ‘walled garden’ targeted at employees, freelance workers and the disengaged to communicate, challenge their fears and troubles and find solace in each other and the wider community. We are proud to be working with DEpressOn to help launch their app on the RealYou platform in the near future
  • RealMe: a digital identity underpinning both Spotlite and the RealYou that allows organisations and individuals to build their reputation through their behaviour and actions

Spotlite launched in Q4 2018. RealYou/RealMe launch is Q4 2019. If you want to know more and want to get involved, click here for more information.

About Us

Led by our founders David Crack and Lisa Pilkington, we are a group of technology, HR, banking, compliance, academic and former law enforcement specialists based in Manchester, UK. Using our combined experience across multiple disciplines, we have designed a software package and suite of services, available in the palm of your hand, which we believe can act as a catalyst for positive engagement and interaction between people and organisations. As part of our ongoing research and development process, we work with globally recognised universities and we seek further partnerships with those who share our aspirations and our humanitarian values.

Associate Programme:

Our associate programme provides access to a wide range of highly experienced specialists in technology, HR, compliance, change and transformation, customer contact, quality control and assurance, and criminal investigations. All our associates have worked with each other previously and collectively helped us develop, test and market our solutions.
