How does Cygnetise help to reduce fraud?

• The audit gives you full access to timestamped changes to your lists
• When your counterparts access the authorised signatory lists via the platform, there is no opportunity to tamper with your lists
How does Cygnetise save our organisation money?
• Reduction in operational losses due to fraud

What will it mean for my customers and counterparts?
• It is free for your counterparts to view your lists via the platform.
• For those counterparts not willing to change, you can share your authorised signatory lists in the same way as you do now i.e. via PDF.
Other counterparts who are keen to embrace more secure forms of sharing your authorised signatory lists, this can be done two ways:
• Your lists can be distributed with two ways: via the platform or a real time PDF link or existing PDF format (this last way being your existing format)
• You can include a customised cover sheet with detailed signing responsibilities as per your current process
If I send my counterparts the PDF link, will they see changes that I make?
Yes, any changes you make are seen by your counterpart who has an active link, which you have given them. This removes the need for unnecessary emails to notify counterparts of updates.
