Finance & Banking

Enabling financial institutions to achieve rapid, large-scale automation.

The Challenging
Financial Landscape

Digital transformation in today’s fiercely competitive financial industry requires unprecedented levels of speed, intelligence, agility and cost efficiency. The industry is coming under intense pressure from daring industry leaders and disruptive new digital entrants, who are nimbler and more tech-savvy than veteran companies with legacy infrastructure to support.

In terms of costs, the rising price of anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) compliance, regulatory scrutiny, and steep fines for non-compliance, is forcing financial institutions to consider new technologies capable of replacing manual tasks, improving compliance and lowering operating costs.

Key Challenges Facing the Financial Services Industry

Staying competitive against digital newcomers requires banking and financial insurance companies to embrace digital transformation faster
Reliance on Manual Processes

Many business processes at financial institutions are repetitive, time-consuming, and still rely on heavy manual labor. This high degree of reliance on manually-intensive processes is costly and inefficient, and can often lead to high error rates or compromised security levels.

Regulatory Pressure and High Cost of Compliance

According to a Thomson Reuters survey, an average financial firm spends US $60M per year on KYC compliance, customer due diligence (CDD) and onboarding. In 2016, US financial institutions were fined a total of $300B for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and AML regulations.

Back Office Inefficiencies

Banks have made a significant shift towards digitizing many of their customer-facing, front-end operations. Yet, the back office is still burdened by manual processes that rely on people and paper, resulting in needless expense, slow handling times, and suboptimal customer service.

Outdated Legacy Systems

Few banks have had the appetite for reengineering their processing structure. Redesigning outdated systems calls for time-consuming, complex system integration projects that can cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

How Kryon RPA Delivers Value to Banking and Financial Institutions

Streamlining existing processes through non-invasive RPA

Financial institutions face pressure to improve performance and scale their processes rapidly. But, the complexities and costs of new technology integration make this prohibitive.

Kryon RPA can speed up operations, cut costs, and eliminate errors – all without changing the underlying systems on which it is implemented. Through non-invasive deployment within the existing IT architecture, our RPA platform does not disrupt day-to-day operations, and improves the accuracy and efficiency of processes already in place. Kryon Robots interact with existing business applications just as humans do, manipulating data within the presentation layer of the existing user interfaces. This makes it especially suitable for use on legacy infrastructure, thus enabling financial institutions to achieve greater efficiency without unwanted IT costs.

Scaling up operations while driving costs down

Financial organizations risk being overwhelmed by a myriad of costly, repetitive processes that prevent them from meeting growth and profit targets. By shifting much of these recurring manual tasks from humans to a virtual workforce, financial organizations remove the burden of this work from their employees, enabling them to focus on higher-value strategic tasks that drive the business. Offloading back office tasks to robots can impact everything from operational performance and agility to lowering OPEX.

Kryon RPA can help decouple HR costs from process volume by enabling organizations to seamlessly scale RPA processes and the robotic workforce. Kryon’s RPA Platform allows you to easily add and expand existing automation workflows, as well as add more robots to your workforce on-demand, in order to meet growing workloads. This simplifies operation flows and frees up people allowing organizations to re-direct valuable human resources to other key areas of growth.

Risk management and compliance

Kryon RPA delivers value to compliance oversight operators in the financial industry. For example, Kryon RPA’s ability to monitor and aggregate data from multiple regulatory sources enables compliance officers to stay on top of new regulatory information or rules changes, and incorporate the updates into appropriate channels and systems.

In financial risk management, Kryon RPA makes it possible for organizations to detect changes in risk exposure and determine data or business-related causes for risks by setting up sensors in the Kryon Studio. Sensors can be used to evaluate credit limits and determine causes for limit breaches, with remedial actions generated automatically.

Kryon Use Case

How Kryon Helped a Major Bank Increase Compliance and Minimize Non-Compliance Costs

Compliance officers of a leading global bank needed to visit over 200 different websites daily to monitor any new regulatory information or rules changes and ensure that they were updated and integrated in the appropriate channels and systems.

The bank used Kryon Robots to log in to each of the different websites and run a smart search to quickly capture regulatory information and verify it against current inputs in the regulatory compliance systems. This saved the bank a significant amount of time and manpower.
