Frequently Asked Questions
There are many ways to optimise workflow management for financial compliance, including the use of automated technology.
Using automation, one way to create an effective compliance management system for your company is to focus on setting up a bespoke workflow. When automated, workflow management can reduce your costs while ensuring that your institution remains compliant with existing and emerging regulations.
Depending on the type of software you use and your objectives, most financial compliance processes can be automated. That said, it’s recommended that you focus on automating practices that don’t require too much skill and those that otherwise take plenty of time.
One example is horizon scanning for regulatory change, which can be a complex, time-consuming task if done manually.
Automated regulatory horizon scanning tools, on the other hand, scan the regulatory landscape for updates and inform compliance teams in real-time, saving plenty of time and resources, and making this process ideal for automation.
