New York, Dec. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Know Your Customer Software Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Component, By Deployment, By Enterprise Size, By End-use, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 - 2028" - Organizations like banks, financial institutions, and other institutions and workplaces employ KYC as a method of authentication. A KYC process includes a few characteristics in order to be considered standard. Policy on customer acceptance, techniques for customer identification, management of risk, and monitoring unusual activity in consumer transactions are some of the most important functions that KYC software performs.Any business relationship with a financial institution, bank, and company handling sensitive information, international vendor, customer, or supplier is required to go through the KYC procedure. In addition, it is crucial for organizations to conduct KYC during the contract signing and onboarding and on an ongoing basis. This is needed in order to prevent affiliation with business partners who are engaged in non-compliance with regulations and rules and financial crimes.KYC is a part of customer due diligence (CDD) and it engages in confirming customers’ identities. In order to detect ownership connections, collusion in anti-money laundering (AML), and connections between organizations, KYC procedures are implemented to evaluate personal and company records. The process identifies any negative hits, such as watch lists, sanctions lists, and politically exposed persons (PEPs) lists associated with the person. Minimum criteria for CDD, risk, and compliance assessments have been created to help combat money laundering, financial crime, terrorist financing, and other illicit activities.KYC is an essential part of the compliance management system (CMS). The system defines the extent of compliance checks and regulatory risk needed to be considered depending on the anticipated level of risk. Additionally, transactions are reviewed for any potential odd activity. The determination of the source and location of funds is consequently a primary goal of Know-Your-Business-Partner due diligence.COVID-19 Impact AnalysisA significant trend of the pandemic was the desire for flexible workforces, which intensified even after the outbreak subdued. Businesses outsourced contingent workers on a project-by-project basis to save operating expenses. The number of compensation claims, loan approvals, mortgage holiday requests, and other state claims and rules that must be vetted, processed, and distributed by individuals in compliance increased. As a result, for many companies’ completion of KYC became a critical provision.Market Growth FactorStreamlining and quickening of the KYC processMost of the know your customer software significantly helps in countering the high abandonment rates that are usually seen in the manual know your customer systems. The time-consuming process of carrying document copies for the KYC process to go through successfully renders customers to abandon the process, and some may not even consider it. The rising adoption of KYC software has eventually increased the range of KYCs being done in many companies and institutions. KYC software enables businesses to deduct the time requirements of a single KYC from days to minutes.Easy configuration of rules to comply with CDD/EDDThe automated onboarding of KYC through the software assists in verifying individuals and their documents remotely. This can be done either through visual identity verification software or by searching international databases. This simplifies the inclusion of checking against sanctions registers and PEPs, in addition to enabling the due diligence of directors or beneficial owners for harmful political and media exposure. Consequently, this establishes compliance with governmental bodies for EDD/CDD and AML and allows quick production of audit trails.Market Restraining FactorLack of consistency in the required type of documentThe failure of digital infrastructure and the high probability of data breaches pose a significant danger to the implementation of KYC. In addition, the increasing instances of personal information misuse deter many customers from opting for KYC. Furthermore, the nonexistence of document standardization among the various banks, fintech, and financial institutions raises the complexity of the KYC process to some extent. It has been found on many occasions that different companies from the same industry demand different sets of documents for KYC. This is especially true in cases where a company operates in many jurisdictions.Component OutlookBased on component, the know your customer software market is categorized into software and services.
