As regulatory requirements on the financial services scene become stricter every day, it's clear that business processes, like comprehensive end customer onboardings, are necessary to kick off loyal, long-term, mutually beneficial customer relationships. However, stringent and continuously changing regulations make client lifecycle management expensive, time and resource intensive, and cumbersome for your customers.
It is this significant pain point that led our team to develop the Harmoney solution. Since we started out in 2016, new functionalities and enhancements are constantly being added to optimise the entire customer due diligence and lifecycle management process. All with a truly end-to-end perspective: from the end customers to the compliance teams and the organisation’s core systems.
We strive to empower your financial services business to transcend repetitive, manual, and often paper-based tasks through digitalisation and automation. All while streamlining the processes of onboarding, reboarding, offboarding, and continuous customer due diligence. That’s how we can promise you instant compliance with complete peace of mind.
The Harmoney team are all experts in their fields. As a team, we combine expertise in regulatory intelligence, state-of-the-art technology, financial and client services, and professional delivery. We are fully motivated to take total responsibility in our areas of expertise. Moreover, our combined expertise allows us to take the lead in all of (y)our projects Working alongside you, the customer, our combined expertise means that you can have full confidence in a collaboration to deliver.
