SmartSearch takes the risk out of risk assessments

Leading digital compliance provider SmartSearch has added a new ‘risk assessment’ service to its recently enhanced platform.

To prevent inconsistency when assessing subject risk, the service will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to collect information, evidence compliance and ensure better decision-making.

Customisable to suit each user’s needs a risk assessment questionnaire is sent to search subjects to complete, with the responses automatically collected and the results collated, enabling the user to determine the risk profile of a subject at-a-glance.

Results appear as a search in the subject record, keeping everything in one place. The system also allows for multiple questionnaires at different parts of the process, including follow-up questions if more information is needed.

Martin Cheek, SmartSearch managing director, said: “Clients in all regulated sectors need to assess risk as part of their compliance obligations. We were particularly keen to help our clients standardise their processes and evidence compliance in line with their own business model and risk appetites.

“The new risk assessment service is the latest enhancement to our platform and one that we are confident will save considerable time and take the guess work out of this important step in the verification process.  This addition brings even more of our customers’ compliance journey onto one easy to access platform.”

SmartSearch’s digital compliance solution supports more than 6,500 clients and 60,000 users across the world, helping them deploy millions of complex identity checks in seconds through a single platform.

The platform is already trusted by one in three of the UK’s top 200 law firms, 1 in 2 of the top 100 accountancy firms and more than 1,000 property companies.

Digitalisation and innovation in the accountancy sector
Digitalisation and innovation in financial services - what are they, why are they important and how can you achieve them? Over recent years, but particularly throughout the pandemic, the terms digitalisation and innovation have been used frequently and synonymously, with an underlying assumption that accountancy firms should be doing both. But what are they? Why are they important? And what tools can accountants put in place to protect themselves as they achieve them?
