KYC Transformation

Today’s compliance landscape includes ongoing Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirement adjustments, leaving financial institutions struggling to keep up. To address this challenge, institutions are actively looking to transform their Know Your Customer (KYC) processes.

At our booth, we'll describe our six phases to an effective KYC Transformation and share a copy of our latest KYC report.

Using an “As-a-Service” Model

As the financial services industry evolves, both traditional financial institutions and start-up FinTechs are faced with unique challenges. The “As-a-Service” model is an emerging trend, both in financial services at large and within KYC/AML compliance.

See how we suggest financial institutions meet their strategic goals of using an "as-a-Service" model.

Natural Language Processing (NLP)

NLP is unique in its ability to process unstructured text data, transforming a string of text into words and phrases that convey information and define the meaning of a sentence. This allows the core components of any unstructured natural language to be consistently identified and organized into actionable components that can be more easily handled.

Meet with us at our booth and we'll illustrate how this can support your AML/KYC efforts.
