Markaaz for Banking: Onboard more clients faster and more efficiently  

How Markaaz’s automated business verification and decisioning API services ease banks’ small business customer onboarding backlog 


One of the most significant pain points for banks and financial institutions is being unable to accurately verify the small businesses they want to onboard. With limited publicly available small business information and with most business databases focused on more easily accessible public business data, small businesses often get left out, and small business-focused enterprises miss out on providing their services to a host of potential small business customers.   

Another challenge is the time it takes to onboard a small business. With poor match rates, many enterprises are forced to use multiple business data sources or manual verification processes to try and verify their potential small business clients and often fail. Every batch of data searched involves a dollar and a time cost – and let’s not forget about fraudulent and cloned businesses.   

It can be a nightmare to sort the good from the bad business records reliably.   


We can help you verify and make better decisions so you can onboard more compliant, healthy small business customers you want to do business with.  

Markaaz’s business decisioning and verification API services help you get faster answers to whether these small businesses are a right fit with your data criteria and speed up your onboarding workflows with superior small business match rates and answers available in milliseconds, not hours. While other providers take time hunting for data, Markaaz has built an all-in-one, always-available, global data source featuring business health, firmographic, and compliance data to shorten your time to verification and speed up decisioning, meaning you can get right to onboarding your small business clients.   

It’s time to stop wasting time and money searching multiple outdated databases!
