upload services, you can quickly and easily upload all active legacy clients
onto the SmartSearch platform and run a full AML check on each. You can also retrospectively
check each customer against more than 1,100 worldwide Watchlists to screen for sanctions,
PEPs and any other potential risks to the business.
We have also
recently launched our Business Batch Upload Service, which enables clients to retrospectively
check and upload corporate clients onto the platform. This service enables
clients to retrospectively batch upload all existing business clients,
delivering a full business profile and Know Your Business (KYB) information for
each customer and monitors them all on an ongoing basis. Once the business
derails have been run, the system will identify Directors and Beneficial
Owners, who can then be checked and monitored as individuals.
The two services
can ensure you are able to upload not only legacy customer databases in bulk - retrospectively
running AML checks and screening for sanctions and PEPs - but also any new
client data bases - particularly useful following a merger or acquisition.
Conducting a retrospective
batch upload has a huge number of advantages, as it not only saves time and money,
but also ensures your business is compliant with the latest AML regulations.
The fact the
entire upload can be completed in bulk saves a huge amount of time, as you do
not need to key in each entry individually, and then, once on the system,
everything is hosted centrally and monitored regularly for any changes, so if
there are any increased risks, you will be alerted immediately.
And, once your existing
client records have been batch uploaded onto the platform, they are verified
through the SmartSearch system where they will seamlessly integrate with any
newly onboarded clients.
Managing Director of SmartSearch said “There are various reasons why you may
have gaps in your compliance records, and we are not here to ask why or judge, merely
to offer a solution.
“With our batch
upload services, you can centralise your customer onboarding and due diligence,
giving you the peace of mind that you are not only compliant today, but
throughout the customer relationship.
enables you to upload all your historical active clients in one go, which is particularly
useful following a merger or acquisition where multiple customers need to be checked,
monitored and onboarded at the same time.
“Once the batch
upload is completed, all searches are accessible on the one platform, so that if you
do happen to be audited, you can quickly and easily access all the information
you need, putting your mind at ease that everything is as it should be.”
