Decedent Check - A Complete Death Records Search Tool

It isn’t easy to derive any other data, Death records are usually highly secured within the governments’ infrastructures. The Australian economy came forth with Decedent Check, which was formerly called Australian Death Check, that brought in the required death data for its users and benefited them merrily.

Decedent Check is a death record confirmation web application. In association with PCA - the Phillips and Cohen Associates ADC is a subordinate to NotifyNow that involves a notifier with creditors of the Decedent users in order to close and proceed with their account.

From operating in the Australian countries, ADC's service expansion is the main reason for its name change to Descendent Check. Moreover, this being the subordinate to Notifynow, it basically involves users who are creditors to derive the information on death records from the database.

In order to fetch data, it's important to bring in secured and authenticated data for itself. There are different methods involved and supporting them individually through software was technically challenging. Meanwhile, its correlation with Notifynow makes this also SOC2 compliant enhancing security for data abstraction.

SFTP Method

Users upload their records on the SFTP server as a .CSV file and facilitate bulk search. Once the process is completed and successful. The creditors or users in the platform will get the main notification about the Death records once after processing is complete.

In order to manage bulk data processing fast and securely in the background, we have brought in Queue functions with Laravel to achieve it.

Revenue Model

The revenue model of the platform is brought in through the user. When the user joins the platform, a certain number of credit points are allocated to them as a bonus. Once they finish they can still make use of the platform and the number of credit points is accounted for and posted as monthly bills in the billing section. Moreover, the users don't face any restrictions in accessing the data when they lack credit points. The billing is calculated based on the additional credits utilized in the month. The status will be changed by the admin in their billing module once paid by the user.
