Ensure customer data is always up to date

Whilst performing due diligence on a customer at onboarding is a critical step in the compliance process, businesses now must conduct routine re-screening of customers to ensure that nothing has changed which could impact the working relationship. With customer bases continually growing, finding an efficient method to re-screen customers securely is integral.
