Here’s what we discussed:

Improving the digital account opening experience is mandatory for any financial institution wanting to support a strong customer acquisition strategy.

Since 2019, there have been more checking accounts opened through digital channels than in person. Unfortunately, traditional onboarding tools haven’t kept up with this move to digital. They aren’t designed to help with digital identity verification, making it challenging to recognize and combat stolen ID / synthetic ID fraud. Additionally, these KYC tools don’t work well for unbanked or under-banked applicants, resulting in a time consuming, complicated, high-friction process for the applicant to prove their identity.

In this interactive roundtable, Barret Kaubisch, Senior Manager for Ekata’s Financial Services segment led the group in discussion around the future of onboarding, with topics such as:

  • The challenges with traditional onboarding processes, and the impacts to your business
  • Technologies available to address these gaps
  • How to use global data, sophisticated data science, and machine learning models to enhance legacy KYC and onboarding tools
