DJE Kapital AG integrates SCOPE CDD with Microsoft Dynamics
Cooperation for better implementation of the Anti-Money Laundering legislation
In cooperation with the Cleversoft group, a leading RegTech software supplier from Munich, the Hoofddorp-based company SCOPE FinTech has developed a standard Customer Due Diligence (CDD) software solution. This solution is fully integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The Cleversoft group is a Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner and implements Microsoft Dynamics CRM at DJE Kapital. Among other things, the cloud-based SCOPE CDD software carries out background checks (PEP, sanctions lists, adverse media, etc.) for persons and companies. The SCOPE CDD solution enables direct CDD checks to be carried out from Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
The integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM allows CDD checks to be carried out in a manner that is very user-friendly for the employees. Files are only dealt with in the SCOPE CDD portal if a result is found. The described solution was introduced in December 2019. Since then, more than 5,000 files have been checked.
SCOPE CDD records all checks carried out in the form of a digital certified report in PDF format. A complete investigation file is also entered into the database. De SCOPE CDD solution runs in the Microsoft Azure Cloud environment to guarantee a high level of reliability and optimum security. The solution is also GDPR-proof, and SCOPE FinTech has engaged an external Data Protection Officer to monitor compliance with the guidelines. The solution was also subjected to a judicial review by an expert lawyer.
Customer Due Diligence (CDD)
Customer Due Diligence is a form of ‘Know Your Customer’ inventory in the literal sense of the word. It is a process during which relevant information on the customer is collected and assessed for any risks for the organisation of money laundering and/or terrorist financial activities. A CDD must be carried out when a company that falls under the scope of a law or regulation, with regard to the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act or equivalent European or American legislation, wants to enter into a business relation with a customer. This applies to both a one-off transaction and a long-term customer-supplier relationship. This is actually is a risk inventory and a risk assessment in accordance with the guidelines in relevant legislation.
