SmartOnboard Overview

SmartOnboard is a comprehensive compliance and risk platform that helps onboard customers faster and enables better management of risk throughout the customer lifecycle.

Onboard customers faster and manage risks smarter

SmartOnboard is a comprehensive compliance and risk platform that helps onboard customers faster and enables better management of risk throughout the customer lifecycle.

Financial institutes face several challenges when onboarding commercial customers. Firstly, they must adhere to stringent Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Verifying the identity of commercial customers and ensuring compliance with these regulations can be time-consuming and resource-intensive.

Secondly, the extensive documentation required can create a cumbersome process. Assessing commercial customers' creditworthiness and risk profile demands comprehensive due diligence. Furthermore, competition from fintech start-ups and evolving customer expectations for convenience and personalisation present additional challenges.

SmartOnboard has been designed to help financial institutes enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of their business customers' onboarding process by leveraging data-driven insights, helping with regulatory obligations, and meeting customer demands.
