In many legacy tech stacks, complex and multitudinous checks are carried out in isolation, using separate systems that don’t speak to each other. Knitting together these results into a unified view of risk can be difficult and time-consuming and usually requires an enormous, combined effort.

This means quicker decisions and faster onboarding, leading ultimately to happier customers and a competitive edge over rivals.
