Umazi Collaborates with Artesian : DueDil to Automate and Accelerate SME Corporate Due Diligence

London 1st February 2022: Artesian : DueDil, a leading UK Fintech tackling some of financial services biggest challenges, is pleased to announce a new partnership with enterprise digital identity provider, Umazi. Aiming to set a new onboarding standard for due diligence processes in the SME market, the collaboration between these two influential digital leaders will uniquely facilitate a more streamlined and robust compliance landscape.

Regulated institutions such as banks, FSIs, and law firms must continuously scrutinise the identity and validity of SMEs to assess and classify risk. However, despite being time-sensitive, these processes are typically inefficient. This unique partnership eliminates the burden by combining Umazi’s open-source permissioned blockchain platform, with Artesian : DueDil’s Business Information Graph (B.I.G™) to surface unique insights for advanced validation and verification at scale.

Speaking about the partnership Justin Fitzpatrick, COO and Co-Founder at Artesian : DueDil, commented: “Businesses have suffered the consequences of onerous due diligence requirements and backwards processes for too long. Manual due diligence is not only expensive and time-consuming, but also leaves financial services providers open to unnecessary risk. By working in partnership with Umazi, our aim is to facilitate the cross-industry adoption of more streamlined and continuously updated due diligence. It’s a solution that is faster, cheaper and more robust for both businesses and financial services providers.”

Cindy van Niekerk, CEO of Umazi, added: “We are delighted to work with Artesian : DueDil, a partnership that we believe will act as a catalyst for change in the way financial institutions conduct their due diligence on corporate customers. Artesian : DueDil has a long-standing reputation for helping banks, insurers and FinTechs engage and onboard the right business customers. Umazi pioneering digital ledger technology adds to this, creating a re-usable identity that benefits businesses and financial institutions.”
