eKYC – The "panacea" for businesses in Covid-19
Covid-19 has urged many companies to implement digital transformation to reshape their business models. Against this backdrop, eKYC, or electronic Know Your Customer, is considered as a "panacea" to help businesses to minimize negative impacts of the pandemic and maintain their operations.
eKYC locates businesses’ problems
COVID-19 has recently caused a steep crisis to global economy. Here are 3 main adverse impacts of the outbreak on businesses:
- Disrupted interaction with customers
- Reduced production
- Declining revenue
However, Covid-19 has also offered opportunities for businesses, especially financial institutions and banks, to transform their models digitally. To carry out important and confidential transactions on the internet, businesses need to verify customers’ information, ensuring every detail to be accurate.
eKYC is an effective tool helping businesses to have better understanding of their customers, supporting customer onboarding and business activities. In addition, with eKYC, customers can perform transactions online instead of going to shops, transaction offices or companies.
Customer onboarding is a critical process that customer experience products and services of businesses. Without eKYC, the onboarding process and other activities will be delayed.
