Encompass automates retrieval of KYC data and original documents with accuracy, consistency, and speed. This has been proven to reduce the time spent on these critical KYC activities by 80%, with key features including:

Global data access from a single platform

Intelligent process automation

Automates existing manual error-prone KYC processes to return source documents, Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBOs) and entities. Undertakes entity resolution and analysis to inform subsequent searches.

Full audit trail and data attribute lineage

Provides full traceability and demonstrable compliance.

Digital Profile creation

A digital profile is created for every search, complete with source documents, available to download and review when refresh or remediation is required. Provides the foundation for CLM and organizations moving towards perpetual KYC and a digital operating model.

Nick Ford, VP Strategic Alliances, Encompass, said:

Financial institutions are increasingly adopting data strategies that leverage external data and documents retrieved as part of their KYC processes to enhance the client profile. The Encompass and Pega partnership is exciting because, by seamlessly connecting the internal and external view of a customer into a single workflow, it enables powerful digital transformation and a resulting enhanced customer experience.

Marc Andrews, VP industry market leader, financial services and insurance, Pegasystems, said:

Financial institutions need to simplify the complexity of client onboarding while meeting growing regulatory requirements and mitigating risk.
