RBS (now NatWest) partnered with Evolution AI partly because of our experience working with financial institutions in highly regulated environments. We have embarked on a number of projects to automate key business processes for the bank.
Evolution AI really 'get' working in the banking environment. This is a long-term relationship for us—Mark St John Qualter, Head of AI at RBS.
Banks need to identify suspicious activity at the point of onboarding new customers to prevent financial crime. Therefore, all bank account applications face mandatory screening involving time-consuming Know Your Customer (KYC) checks. Evolution AI was able to automate critical data extraction tasks for RBS, saving several hundreds of thousands of work hours each year.
Data extraction from documents held at the Land Registry, Companies House and other websites was previously done completely manually. These time-consuming tasks were automated in their entirety using managed service, saving the bank between 100 and 200 thousand hours of manual work every year.
