many states are now easing lockdown restrictions to try and get the economy
back on track, the US still has the highest number of coronavirus cases in the
world, and people are still being advised to
work from home where possible and minimize the
amount of time spent around other people.
This lack of
face-to-face contact means financial firms are having to adapt their ways of
working. And while many parts of day-to-day business can be done remotely,
other tasks are not so easy to change. For example, if you
still use physical documents for your CIP and Anti Money Laundering procedures,
you will be struggling.
Even if you have managed to adapt everything else to work
remotely, unless you can do the same with your initial ID checks and customer
due diligence, you are going to hit a brick wall.
So, what are your options – stop on boarding new customers? Or go
ahead, knowing you may well be failing to meet your BSA/AML obligations? This
is certainly not a good choice, as both put the survival of your business at
But what if I told you there was a third option? What if I said
you could carry on as normal even with social distancing rules in place?
By switching to an electronic platform, you can carry on with ‘business as usual’ because checks can be done
without having to see your customers or their documents. Plus, it will also
save your business a small fortune because it is so much quicker and easier to
run an electronic check than a manual one.
All you need to do is enter the individuals’ details
into the system (name, address, date of birth, and social security number) and
it will complete a full check – with Sanction, PEP, SIP, and
RCA screening – in just two seconds.
Not only that, but the system will automatically run Enhanced

service will continually check all searches every night for any changes.
And while social distancing may be the trigger for the
switch, due to the fact it offers the only AML solution during social distancing,
but in the long run, switching to an electronic platform is the best decision
for your business.
Not only is using an electronic platform to run all your
checks quicker, easier, cheaper, and more reliable, but it can also streamline
your entire CIP. That is because we can integrate the SmartSearch system into
your existing program, meaning you only need to enter a client’s details once
and all their details and AML check results will be in one place. We can even
batch upload your past and current customer database so you can run
retrospective checks, ensuring your entire system is up to date and fully
We simply don’t know how long coronavirus
will continue to impact our lives, but what we do know is that using an
electronic AML platform is the only way you can continue to take on any new
clients in the current climate. Switching to electronic verification will not
only give you the solution you need now, but it will also benefit your business
in the long run by saving you time, money, and ensuring you always remain
