Full transcript of this episode is available here.

If you’ve been working in the financial services space, especially in the technology side of it, you’ve come across the terms, KYC, know your customer, AML, anti-money laundering, and of course, ID & V, which is identity and verification. These things are extremely important, especially now in the age of remote work and remote connection, when we don’t necessarily get to see people live and we want to verify that they really are, who they say they are. How can W2 help you with that? Here is a sneak peek of our podcast insights.

Differentiation from the competitors

“I think the things we might do differently from some of the names you might know out there is just pulling it all together in one spot. I think, drivers both in the payments and any heavily regulated sector, it’s about less suppliers, not more, more streamlined approach to it, the scalability and sustainability of your business.“

KYB (Know Your Business) as a new boom in the industry

“Oh, I think one of the biggest changes we’ve seen over the last 6 to 12 months is all around KYB. Everybody knows, know your customer KYC. The fist money laundering directors are essentially around the ultimate beneficial owners.

The focus there is all around the business and that’s become front and center. So thankfully, we’ve just beefed up our offering and that, because it’s one of those things over the last couple of years that people thought was a nice to have. Now it’s becoming absolutely business critical. So for us, that’s a really important part of adding that into the offering.“

Global reach

“We are focused on where our customers are focused and one of the recurring themes coming out of the Pay360 event was where growth is going to come from.“
