Thoughts about quality and agility in document processes.

Aiddocs at Copenhagen FinTech Week 14-20th June 2019

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Financial technology (Fintech) is about new tech seeking to improve and automate the delivery and use of financial services.

In June 2019 in the sunny and hot Copenhagen Fintech was about the many drivers and enablers of financial industry transformation: AI, IoT, blockchain, open banking, regulations, sustainability, smart cities, data ethics, cryptocurrencies, big tech moving into finance etc. Facebook announced Libra during the main conference, stressing the last two in the list.

What’s our take in the event? Aiddocs got an entry to CPH Fintech Week with a booth to get in touch with both startups and established financial institutions.

Startups typically aim for global markets with their products. Whatever the product or service, its users typically need to accept the terms and conditions of it.

As the product gets scaled up in multiple countries and language regions, managing the legal text and ongoing changes to it gets hard to manage and prone to outdated or mismatched content.

There’s never enough time for startups to bother with anything but MVP and getting the first customers. Yet, making the right technological choices might be crucial on the long run. Ones that are standards compliant, easy to adopt and affordable when building up, scalable and feature-rich later on.

Aiddocs aroused interest both as a potential solution for individual products and also as building block component to be used by software vendors on Fintech field.

Financial institutions have a history of producing agreements and statements with their customers and managing content of them in their enterprise systems – most probably with multiple different technologies of two or more decades. As a result, the effort they put in content management is excessive, quality of produced documents is lacking and the document processes are not as automated as they could be.

Copenhagen FinTech Week as an event is more about getting inspiration and background understanding about innovations and buzzwords than searching for ways to improve processes and modernize existing IT systems. Yet, as pointed out by Andrea Kates in her presentation, the first step for an organization to enter the next level is to address issues in  current operations.
