KYC Portal integrates with Acuris Risk Intelligence

Based on client requests, KYC Portal has integrated its platform with the data provisioning services of Acuris Risk Intelligence.

The integration is automated using the APIs available by both tools. By using the API of KYC Portal to push and pull data requests from the API of Acuris Risk Intelligence, it allows for further automation in the process flows of KYCP.


How does it work?

In KYC Portal the data of subjects is input through various means. This is either by the agents or compliance teams within the organisation or directly by their customers, the data on subjects is inserted within KYC Portal. When connected to Acuris Risk Intelligence, the clients of KYC Portal then decide which of the following features to use:


Manual Search

Within KYC Portal there is a button that allows the agent to trigger a manual search. This will pick up all the data in KYCP for the respective subject and submits a call to Acuris Risk Intelligence. Should multiple matches be found they are presented to the agent within the same interface of KYCP allowing the agent to use one system only. These results will include all the data returned from Acuris Risk Intelligence including photo, personal details, political positions, adverse media and much more.

The interface allows the agent to be able to choose which is the right match and which are the false positives at any point in time. All the actions above are instantly audited within the system against the subject by user and date time.


Automated Search

Clients can also opt to have any subject that is added to KYCP to be automatically submitted to the Acuris Risk intelligence without having to manually trigger a search. This eliminates the need to have a member of staff conducting the search, which drastically reduces resource time required and it also ensures that all subjects are searched. Should a match be found on the submitted record, KYCP will alert your team the following day in the morning with a Notification to be able to then manually check the results. All of these actions are also instantly audited against the subject.


On-going Monitoring

Also via the API, Acuris Risk Intelligence allows KYC Portal to hook up for on-going monitoring. This will allow KYCP to ensure that all of your subjects in KYCP are up to date on a daily basis. Should the monitor alert anything, KYCP will raise a notification to the respective team to be able to act on the process flow within the solution.

Acuris Risk Intelligence provide data services on PEPs, Sanctions, Adverse Media, Fraud databases and more. Further detail about their services can be found here.
