KYC: How to Cut Costs, Reduce Vendors, and Increase Security & Compliance

December 8, 2021

Know Your Customer (KYC) checks are a critical compliance step in the onboarding process for companies in the financial, payments, gaming, cryptocurrency, insurance, and investment industries. Unfortunately, KYC processes can often be costly for businesses and a pain for new users attempting to sign up. Businesses also cite the number of anti-fraud/AML vendors they need to use to comply with KYC regulations to be an issue, with many businesses requiring several different vendors to fulfill various types of requirements.

In speaking with many business and compliance leaders, we’ve heard loud and clear the KYC challenges that so many businesses face today. Of course, business leaders want to do everything in their power to stop criminals from using their services illegally, but they also want to make it easy for legitimate customers to onboard digitally.
