Henry Bath is continually looking for ways to enhance document security and to mitigate the risk of fraudulent activity to provide our clients with confidence in our service.

We are committed to promoting this secure environment by partnering with Komgo, and implementing the Trakk system to provide our clients a way of authenticating documents relating to title transfer and ownership

Trakk is a tool for you to increase the security of digital documents exchanged via email to assist with managing your operational risk and provides a quick, efficient, and most importantly, an accurate way to verify a valid Henry Bath document. Using Trakk create a digital audit trail against a document, that will strongly mitigate the risk of it being reused for fraudulent purposes.

Trakk registered documents can be verified by the Henry Bath website, where all you need to do is drag and drop the pdf into the dedicated space.

Komgo CEO, Souleima Baddi says ‘Trakk is a simple, scalable and cost-effective tool to mitigate against documentary fraud risk supported by an ecosystem of trust for digital trade documents, which includes all industry stakeholders. We’re extremely pleased to welcome to this group working for a safer and more secure environment, warehouses like Henry Bath.’
