COVID- 19 poses major challenges to all businesses. However, for regulated entities who rely on manual checking the threat of disruption is grave.
The financial, legal & property sector is obliged, regardless of the circumstances, to perform identity verification checks on all customers before conducting in any business. Depending on the customer and the nature of the business, they can also be obliged to carry out enhanced checks as well as routine monitoring.
Traditional paper-based identity-checking has always had its shortcomings and this crisis serves only to exacerbate this.
Electronic checking is more cost-effective, reliable & secure as it can screen clients against various & officially recognised databases in seconds.
Firms that rely on document-based identity-checking will suffer in this present climate. With restrictions on social contact, the reality is that traditional forms of checking are not viable.
Continuing to rely on these methods will not only put your organisation’s compliance functions at risk, it will also endanger your business's ability to move forward.
Without a resilient compliance strategy in place, identity checking is not only an administrative & time-consuming nightmare but in the present climate it becomes virtually impossible.
Due to restrictions on social contact, face-to-face meetings are unfeasible and the security implications of sending client ID documents to employee’s addresses is hazardous.
If solutions to these problems are not implemented - expect to lose business at a time when allowing potential custom to slip through the net could become financially fatal.
The good news is that these problems can be easily solved via innovative Regtech solutions.

Loving your company's services! I switched to you from another provider, and what you deliver is much better, and your web interface is so much simpler to use.
I absolutely love it. I can't believe how easy it is to use and how user friendly it is in its format.
Love it – very happy client as well as we can now speed up the process by 4 days for him.
The system was extremely easy to set up and we were up and running with it very quickly… It made a refreshing change to be in that position so quickly.
This is very user friendly – brilliant! I wish I’d discovered this at the start of trading.
Very clear & simple. Used it, without reading the manual of course, just to give it a try. Excellent service.
I have just used Veriphy for the first time. It is excellent – so much easier than chasing old passports and utility bills that are sent by email.
