RealAML helps NZ companies identify their clients without a doubt to be compliant with anti-money laundering requirements. In this episode, I talk with Jordan about why he wanted the recognition to be a NZ coded product with NZ based staff to be able to differentiate vendors who are simply reselling overseas products. That choice has enabled RealAML to capitalise on the higher level of trust Kiwis have in handing over their private data to a NZ software business.
