The core of the CROSStrax case management system was first designed as the in-house case management system for the founders Patrick Andrews and Rob Seymour’s investigative company, TIG Risk Services (“TIG”).

The system was then battle tested and improved through daily usage by TIG’s owners, managers, office staff, operations staff, sales reps and field investigators over 20 years. The feedback derived from their real life/true/actual investigative experiences paved the way for constant improvements to the platform so an investigative company can grow and succeed. Thus, before it was released it had proven to be a great platform to productively and profitably manage an investigation firm.

Since CROSStrax was made available to the market in 2014, it has been preoccupied with staying ahead of the curve and improving. We continue to listen to and learn from feedback from the investigative community in general but more importantly our users and their staffs. This approach allows us to update our platform, add new features, and implement new technology on a regular basis.

Digital Recognition Network, DRN
DRN’s growth path has been fueled by visionary innovation, proven technology, and a service-and-solutions-oriented culture. Today, DRN’s exclusive vehicle location data paired with analytics helps users build the full story of a vehicle’s location history and trends rather than simple location tracking alone. This competitive advantage can help lenders, recovery agents, insurers and auto manufacturers locate more vehicles faster. That means fewer charge-offs, more recovered vehicles, less fraud and higher recall completion… which lowers risk and increases revenue.
Vehicle Location Data via Event Links–  comes from license plates that are publicly visible for all to see. The United States is home to the largest passenger vehicle market in the world with over 250 million passenger vehicles travelling on public roads and thoroughfares. Every car has a license plate and our cameras capture images of license plates that pass within the field of view of the camera, the location where the camera was located when the photograph was taken, and the time and date the camera took the photograph. These cameras simply automate a process that has been done manually for years – capturing publicly visibly and publicly available information. Because the camera is photographing license plates in public locations visible for all to see, there is no expectation of privacy in the data we collect. We take those images and the data associated with them and leverage our analytics to deliver Event Links and DRNsights, solutions for Auto Finance, Insurance and Auto Recovery.

In 2000, we were contacted by well-known criminal defense attorney Gerald Lefcourt. Along with five other criminal defense firms, he was in need of a vendor to convert or "digitize" cassette tape recordings containing more than 1600 hours of archived audio to WAV files for computer playback. The case was U.S. v. Black or internally known as "uptick." It was a great beginning and very quickly we found ourselves working closely with the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York overseeing thousands of hours of wire-tap and bodywire recordings created by the FBI. Mainly drug, organized crime and illegal stock trading cases. We recognized there was a broader need for these kind of services and soon began working with other private investigative firms and legal professionals throughout New York City. We named our company Legal Audio.
