Case: Smooth KYC in the Roaring Web App for Knyta


Using KYC data to ensure sustainable business relations.


Reduction in time spent conducting AML screenings


The AML screening process has now been standardized.

Through the Roaring Web App, accounting, HR and payroll firm Knyta has been able to reduce their time spent working with KYC by 50%. This is how they did it.



Due to anti-money laundering regulations being extended a few years back to include accounting firms, Knyta went in search of a tool that could provide a simple way of conducting KYC screenings and create reports. 

The primary use case was to screen prospects in a customer onboarding stage, as well as regular screens and yearly reviews. Previously Knyta had to use multiple tools, export the findings and puzzle the data from different sources into one report and assessment. The previous process required a lot of time and manual work for consultants.

“The KYC process used to require a lot of manual work in multiple tools and sources, everything from data collection in public records to external suppliers.” Says Axel Schulz, Accountant at Knyta.

“With that kind of data fragmentation, you end up spending more time ensuring compliance and gathering data, than you are providing great services to your customers. Obviously that’s not ideal.”

Since joining Roaring, the web app has helped Knyta reduce time spent conducting KYC screenings by 50%, while improving the process comfort through data quality assurance.

Now, the team can easily collect and verify data related to AML such as board members, beneficial owners, owner structure, PEP and sanctions.

“One of the things we loved was how easy it was to get started, and start using the clean interface of the web app. Having every piece of data we needed in one place, with the ability to create reports from the screening was also a huge benefit.”

Gathering everything needed in one place, enables Knyta to create a process standard, as well as ensuring that their customer relationships are solid in terms of avoiding risk. In turn, this improves efficiency and process comfort.

“One of our main goals at Knyta is to form long-term, sustainable business relationships. By having a smooth and secure tool like the web app, we can continuously ensure that our customers are a good fit in terms of that goal.”

“By using Roarings services we’ve also created a standardized KYC process, which is great as it improves the process comfort and quality.” Axel concludes.
