Vanquis Bank partners with HooYu to digitalise KYC processes

Security , AML and KYC

Leading customer onboarding and KYC technology firm, HooYu, has announced a partnership to digitalise Vanquis Bank’s KYC processes.  The HooYu KYC journey has been selected to provide additional identity proofing during the customer lifecycle when customers perform a potentially high-risk action on their accounts.  

Vanquis Bank is part of the Provident Financial Group, a UK and Ireland business with over 140 years’ experience in lending to consumers who are not well served by mainstream lenders. With millions of customers, Vanquis needed to find a way to help balance fraud prevention and KYC with a great customer experience. 

Existing customers calling in to the change the details on their account were in some cases having to wait weeks before the change could be approved.   The team at Vanquis Bank is continually looking to improve how their products work for their customers and that they are easy to apply for and manage.  Vanquis Bank decided to implement an ID document validation solution that would speed up customer lifecycle management and improve the customer experience. 

Sue Singleton, Process Change Assurance Manager at Vanquis Bank said, “By adding HooYu to our KYC tools, we can improve some of our higher risk customer processes and can now facilitate customer requests without asking the customer to post in copies of documentation. Our agents deal with thousands of customers a day and now what could have been a delay of weeks for our customers, can be achieved in a matter of minutes with HooYu”. 

David Pope, Marketing Director at HooYu said, “It’s been great to see the results of Vanquis implementing the HooYu digital journey and how the HooYu UI and UX tools are helping their customers though the KYC process.”
