Encompass Corporation, creator of Know Your Customer (KYC) software for legal, accountancy and financial organisations, today announced a partnership with leading online directory 192.com.

This new partnership means Encompass users will have access to 192.com’s wealth of information, including historic and edited electoral rolls and director reports. The identity verification that is enabled via this partnership will provide an essential tool in helping companies to comply with Anti-Money Laundering legislation, whilst also being an invaluable tool for insolvency practitioners.   

192.com’s Product Director, Dominic Blackburn commented; “192.com has over one billion searchable records, including the Open Electoral Register from 2002 to 2016 and over 26 million residential addresses. I am thrilled that our partnership with Encompass will provide them with data to enable them to offer the best KYC solution available.    

The relationship with 192.com is another addition to Encompass’ growing portfolio of information providers including Companies House, Dunn & Bradstreet, Creditsafe and the Land Registry.

Encompass is a leading provider of KYC automation software, used in financial and professional services to complete compliance up to 13 times faster, at as little as 10% of the cost of current processes.  

Wayne Johnson, CEO from Encompass said: “The addition of 192.com, the UK’s leading directly for individuals and businesses, is an exciting addition that will expand the depth of information we are able to provide to all our users, enabling them to quickly assess the broadest range of individuals, companies and directors.”

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
