With an ever-changing compliance landscape, and frequent updates to legislation, digital customer onboarding has become a major focus for financial institutions across South Africa.
The Financial Intelligence Centre (FICA) Amendment Act of 2017 introduced a risk-based approach to compliance elements such as customer due diligence to the regulatory framework. This risk-based approach requires accountable institutions to fully understand their exposure to money laundering and terrorist financing risks, which in turn means they need to adopt a personalised approach to customer due diligence.
And it is this need that forms the basis of pbVerify’s digital customer onboarding systems – custom built to suit institutions’ specific needs.
pbVerify offers organisations a versatile digital adoption platform for onboarding customers, which is fully compliant with the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act, as well as global anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) requirements.
Our onboarding systems inject true intelligence into companies’ web-based application forms, allowing for the transformation of paper-based credit applications into efficient online web-based forms that verify the identity of the applicant in real time, while automatically drawing consumer and commercial verification reports in the back-office system. These include the following
- Credit reports
- Bank Account Holder Verifications (AVS)
- CIPC Company verifications
- Address Verification
- AML Sanction Screening
- 3D Liveness Biometrics
- Mobile number verifications
True digital onboarding eradicates fraudulent applications and enables companies to approve applications that are guaranteed to be of required quality – in just minutes. Manual customer onboarding processes are time-consuming (generally taking days to weeks to complete) and prone to fraud and error.
With digital onboarding, there is no paper, no printing and no manual credit bureau, ITC or CIPC checks. Everything is automated according to company procedures.
