Document Logistix helps banks, building societies, IFAs, Wealth Management firms and Credit Lenders to manage vast amounts of sensitive information, to achieve full productivity and assured compliance.
The twin drivers for financial businesses are efficiency, to serve customers quickly and well, and compliance, to maintain sensitive data securely for strict audits.
Many financial bodies are governed by “Know your customer” regulations (alternatively, know your client or 'KYC'). The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 are the underlying rules that govern KYC in the UK.
Know your customer is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients and assessing potential risks of illegal intentions for the business relationship. The term is also used to refer to the bank regulations and anti-money laundering regulations that govern these activities. Know your customer processes are also employed by companies of all sizes for the purpose of ensuring their proposed agents, consultants or distributors are anti-bribery compliant. Banks, insurers and export creditors are increasingly demanding that customers provide detailed anti-corruption due diligence information.
Rules-based workflow means that customer acceptance procedures are followed and identity documentation is captured according to company policy. Each checkpoint requires completion to allow progress.
Automation can be introduced in workflows to trigger escalation and alerts to ensure that procedures are met.
Digital document management enables financial bodies to capture information comprehensively, store and manage it securely, and allow permissions-based access instantly from any location. Financial bodies can also implement automated retention policies to ensure that data is retained and destroyed according to regulatory requirements.
As digital document management overcomes the problems innately associated with paper-based systems and data silos, audit trails are complete and quickly produced.
Historically data was housed in multiple systems and locations such as CRM, HR, Finance, filing cabinets and email. The ability to keep time-stamped information in one location greatly eases the burden of strict audits.
Finance businesses and departments generate a constant stream of paperwork, for example: customer acceptance information, customer and supplier correspondence, invoices, purchase orders, expenses claims, receipts and credit card statements. The majority of documents tend to be electronic, received via email, yet paper documents still play a part in many businesses. The key to success, regardless of format, is proper information capture and secure storage that facilitates access and information management.
Digital storage and document process automation with Document Logistix’ flagship system, Document Manager, will help your company overcome process bottlenecks, deliver business efficiency, and achieve assured compliance with regulatory requirements.
