With more than 2400 startups, Indonesia’s digital economy and Industry 4.0 is arguably the fastest growing in SEA. Hence there is a need for a simplified eKYC/ eKYB digital onboarding solution.

Now as the country’s digital economy heads towards US$124 billion 2025, it is estimated that just the e-com sector would account for almost US$83 billion!

As part of this growth, it is also estimated there will be a continual increase in the number of fintech & ecom businesses.

Now we all know that all businesses are obliged to adhere to certain compliances and regulations. One such regulation is the eKYC(Know- Your- Customer) under Law No. 8 of 2010 & OJK Regulation No. 12/2018 on the prevention and eradication of money laundering. 

What is eKYC & eKYB?

eKYC or electronic know your customer is a process that aims to verify customer identity accurately supported by government databases.

The KYC process is a mandatory compliance measure according to the Indonesian FInancial Services Authority(OJK), ensuring that financial institutions correctly verify their customers’ identities. 

While the term KYC is commonly used  for individuals; Corporate Onboarding requires broader and more thorough “Know Your Business”/eKYB check. 

These eKYC & eKYB processes are the lifeblood of any business. An efficient e-kYC/KYB process is crucial for business success; as it ensures that the first interaction clients and customers have with your brand, fast, smooth and seamless.
