Deutsche Bank employees spent more than 40 hours per account in account investigations and AML efforts such as screening addresses, suspicious transaction tracking, adverse media monitoring, and checking for politically exposed persons (PEP).
New account screening and refresh screenings were highly manual and required thousands of people to scan news reports for keywords and flag words. This left less time to perform the higher-value deep analysis required for a robust AML program.
WorkFusion Intelligent Automation completes the same work in less time and with significantly more depth: It doesn’t just look for keywords but leverages AI to consider their context. This sharply reduces false-positive results, helping analysts and remediation teams to utilize their core competencies and focus their time on items of potential account risk or compliance concerns.
Also, a forward screening model allows the bank to track AML activities more rigorously, to keep them ahead of risks and threats.
WorkFusion’s Document Intelligence capability also helps Deutsche Bank analyze and process large volumes of various types of unstructured documents daily.
Previously, the bank’s employees had to manually process documents — a costly, time-consuming and cumbersome operation. Now, learning bots digitize documents, extract relevant information, and record data in the banking systems, saving the bank millions in costs and allowing teams to re-allocate employees’ time to higher-value tasks.
See how WorkFusion’s Digital Workers can help you streamline operations, raise efficiency and cut costs.
We picked WorkFusion because they provide a learning automation platform, which means our employees did not have to become programmers to use it.
