Why do banks need smartEYE?

There are typically two reasons for banks to carry out KYC refresh processes: periodic and event-driven. Waiting to carry out KYC refresh until it is time to do so or until an event has occurred puts banks at risk of missing red flags. This increases their exposure to financial and other serious criminality risks as well as reputational damage.

For many banks it is impossible to continuously monitor open source intelligence due to the sheer volume of information being published in numerous outlets and in multiple languages.  

Banks that have attempted to implement adverse media screening/perpetual KYC systems are struggling with the number of alerts they receive—many of them non-relevant—that they still need to check manually. 

This is costing banks time, money and resources.

“With smartEYE, banks get risk-relevant, real-time alerts that allow them to act decisively and quickly. Compliance teams no longer have to wait for a periodic refresh or an adverse event to occur.
