RiskScreen Recognized for Best AML Solution in 2021 FinTech Breakthrough Awards Program

Press Release: Prestigious Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Financial Technology Products and Companies

March 16, 2021 – AML software provider RiskScreen today announced that its RiskScreen OnBoard solution has been selected as winner of the “Best Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Solution” award in the fifth annual FinTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by FinTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global FinTech market today.

RiskScreen OnBoard is the first fully integrated onboarding platform to combine a web portal, workflow, electronic identification and verification (eIDV), AML screening and risk rating in a single turnkey service. Clients can collect information, proof of ID and documentation from prospects via a pre-built, flexible white-label web portal and mobile app. Multi-stage workflow enables their teams to view all onboarding journeys and resolve roadblocks in real time, while delivering a smooth user experience to their customers.

RiskScreen OnBoard can be securely integrated with other modules within the RiskScreen suite, the Salesforce CRM, or any other systems of choice when onboarding is complete. It can also act as a secure cloud-based data repository for KYC and screening information, and make selected data available to introducers, intermediaries and outsourced compliance clients. Importantly, the system can be up and running within just a few weeks – transforming customer time-to-revenue from what can be months, to minutes.

“RiskScreen OnBoard represents a significant breakthrough in response to a growing market need, providing organizations with the ability to more easily manage AML risk during digital customer onboarding,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough.

We extend our sincere congratulations to RiskScreen for their leading-edge solution and for taking home our ‘Best Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Solution’ award in the 2021 FinTech Breakthrough Awards program.
