Our customers trust us to make currency exchange as secure and friendly as possible and regulators want to know that we deliver best KYC practices possible.
Nicosia, Cyprus (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Integrating the AU10TIX B.O.S solution enables Kantox to auto-classify and authenticate and extract data from of images of customers ID documents - all at typical speed of 2-5 seconds. The recently announced AU10TX 3-way authentication standard provides the most comprehensive security analysis of ID images available today: Logical data analytics, document tempering forensics and file meta-data examination. By integrating AU10TIX B.O.S intro their process flow, Kantox benefits from latest standard fraud protection and KYC compliance capabilities, while streamlining customer screening and onboarding and reducing exclusive dependence on manual back-office processing.
“Kantox prides itself on keeping ahead of the market”, says Laurent Descout, CFO of Kantox. “Our customers trust us to make currency exchange as secure and friendly as possible and regulators want to know that we deliver best KYC practices possible. At the same time, everyone in online financial services knows that customer ID authentication and 'time to yes' are critical factors and a serious bottle neck. That is why, for the benefit of our clients, our regulators and ourselves as a business, we have taken the initiative to catch the security bird and the operating efficiency bird at one stroke. With the AU10TIX B.O.S system we benefit from better security and compliance, while reducing customer hassle and making our own operation more effective and cost-effective.”
“Our friends at Kantox know what they want and they got it”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “They understood immediately that AU10TIX B.O.S enables much more than fraud prevention and KYC compliance. They are well aware of the fact that speedy, hassle free customer acquisition means less churn and higher volume handling capacity. They also are well aware that manual back-office examination and processing become a bottle-neck and resource drainer as you grow. Now security and compliance go together with a more streamlined and cost-effective business.”
“Up to 45% of customers abort online processing because of the time and hassle. Up to 30% of manually entered data contains errors and gaps”, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX. “Online is not front-end. Customer patience is different. Intensity of traffic is different. And, yes, increasing fraud is causing regulations to become tighter. What we offer is simple: Enable your back-office team to work on speedy 'Time to Yes', and focus more effectively on those cases that are borderline and attention worthy.“
