September 2018 Update: Company Search & Automated Reporting

Company Search
illumis has always allowed you to monitor all of the political contributions made on a name-by-name basis. Now, our platform also allows you to search by employer company names as well.

Most jurisdictions mirror the Federal government’s reporting requirements – including requiring reporting of employer and occupation. With this new search functionality, not only does illumis let you monitor for contributions by employee name across all 50 states, federal data, and local jurisdictions, but you can also monitor by employer name.

Date Filters
illumis’ database contains hundreds of millions of contribution records (extending back decades in some jurisdictions), giving you a fully comprehensive contribution search that is updated daily with any new records. Now, you can filter that search to just include the last 6 months, the last 2 years, or a custom date range of your choice.

Automated Reporting Functionality
With this new feature, you can generate reports that show the searches and monitoring that were in place for a given time period, and whether any records were found for those searches. You can also set these reports to automatically generate and be emailed to you on a monthly or quarterly basis.

Please Note: This post was updated in June 2020 to reflect our company’s new name: illumis


news
We started Vigilant with a clear problem in mind: government records are far too difficult to access. This impedes transparency, and makes it harder for people who need access to this information to do their jobs. Over the last four years—whether it’s wrangling antiquated databases, messy archived documents, or records scattered between hundreds of balkanized datasets—we’ve worked to enhance transparency and make it easier to access public data.
compliance updates
We’ve been working closely with our customers to build a more streamlined political contribution monitoring system. Today, we’re excited to introduce the newest release on our political contribution monitoring platform: preclearance record matching.
compliance updates
We’re excited to announce we’ve added a streamlined, fully-customizable preclearance tool to illumis’ political contribution monitoring solutions. Our preclearance feature ties political contribution preclearance data and monitoring data together in a single workflow for the first time, enabling significant automation to save time and improve processes for compliance teams across the financial services industry.
