One of the most prevalent challenges faced by Assured Conveyancing was the prolonged timeframe required for client onboarding, which, in the industry, typically spans 14 weeks. A significant contributor to this delay was the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) process. Prior to adopting APLYID, Assured Conveyancing followed a manual approach. They would mail welcome packs to clients, containing instructions for the documents necessary for their ID verification and AML checks. These documents had to undergo verification by an official, often leading to additional postal exchanges. After finally obtaining the required documents, the details had to be manually entered and processed through their previous provider.
The entire pre-APLYID process usually consumed an average of 3-4 weeks by the time clients managed to verify and return their documents. As a result of this time-consuming manual process, Assured Conveyancing experienced a concerning attrition rate, losing, on average, one client every two days. Despite previous attempts with alternative providers, they encountered difficulties, particularly with app-based solutions that proved incompatible with smartphones.
This prompted their decision to explore APLYID as a potential solution to address these challenges and streamline their client onboarding process.
APLYID introduced a revolutionary remote identity verification flow. This biometric onboarding process empowered Assured Conveyancing to digitally and remotely onboard clients, eliminating the need for physical document submission. Initiated via SMS, clients could now complete onboarding within minutes.
The APLYID process has transformed our operations from days to mere hours. Immediately after concluding a client call, I can send them a text message, which they typically complete within half an hour.
