KYC is an important part of protecting yourself – and your customers – from fraud, regulatory breaches and bad actors. Luckily APLYiD makes KYC compliance quick, seamless and effective
Companies that deal with individuals have a responsibility to ensure they are who they say they are and live where they say they live. You have to be able to say your company did everything they could (within reason) to protect against people using your company to launder money or commit identity fraud. All the information you collate has to be documented through a customer lifecycle and readily accessible to prove you did it – meaning KYC matters to compliance, risk, operations and IT departments in every company.
The problem is that regulatory bodies in many different industries – accountancy, legal, real estate, financial services, and more – do not always tell you what ‘knowing your customer’ should look like. As a result companies have to determine what their own ‘risk’ or ‘identification’ policies should be. What is going to protect your business from risk and crime? What is going to protect your business from regulatory breaches and fines? What is going to protect your customers?
By harnessing APLYiD’s technology, we have seen 406% more accounts created due to ease of onboarding. It has been amazing to see this technology in action and how it has enhanced our client experience.
