Problem: The client was looking for an effective solution to satisfy the regulatory requirements necessary to expand their offering to additional jurisdictions in the Asian region. In particular, they were looking for comprehensive KYC/AML coverage as well as a focused approach to automating the KYC process for corporate entities.
