Why Digitization Should Be Your Company’s Next Big Step

Why Digitization Should Be Your Company’s Next Big Step

28 Sep 2021 — Company records serve as the backbone that could guide your organization to where it needs to be. But is keeping heaps of physical documents and files the best way forward? ? How much more reams of paper should you use to print documents day in and out?  Just recently, the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) has issued a new guideline requiring the digitization of customer records in all banks, insurance companies, and other covered entities under Republic Act (RA) No. 9160, or the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2001, as amended (AMLA). Entities, businesses, casinos, and professions subject to the AMLC's authority and jurisdiction on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CFT) issues are among those who are covered. With the new guideline in place, covered persons like banks, insurance companies, and related businesses are required to store digitized records of their customers in their own central database. This means that those covered under the guidelines must be able to submit documents upon request.  This move to digitization was fueled by the need for the council to accurately assess financial transactions, making sure that nothing suspicious is happening under the radar. But more than being a means to keep track of the transactions, digitization was also seen as a good way to perform effective information analysis and monitoring.   The timing could not have been more apt as well. The Philippine economy is growing at one of the fastest rates in Asia. These guidelines provide an additional impetus for the economy to become more globally competitive, as they integrate the Philippine financial system more deeply into the digital world. In a world that turns to digital transactions for just about everything, perhaps it’s best to start embracing digitization as well. Here are some reasons why you should consider digitizing your organization’s customer records and physical documents.

Three considerations before embracing hybrid work

09 Sep 2021 — Digital nomads and jet-setting executives have long since discovered that work can be done anywhere one’s heart desires. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the rest of the corporate population had to quickly learn the ropes for themselves. Reviews are mixed; some people sorely miss human interaction and the clear demarcation of work and home. For others however, they have embraced the zero-commute time, the flexibility to walk your dog during lunchbreaks, and the greater confidence speaking into a screen instead of a roomful of people. Whether you are a company owner, employee, or part of the IT team exploring the possibility of permanently shifting your work force into a hybrid one, there are several factors that need to be carefully considered.
