Umazi Collaborates with Artesian : DueDil to Automate and Accelerate SME Corporate Due Diligence


London 1st February 2022: Artesian : DueDil, a leading UK Fintech tackling some of financial services biggest challenges, is pleased to announce a new partnership with enterprise digital identity provider, Umazi. Aiming to set a new onboarding standard for due diligence processes in the SME market, the collaboration between these two influential digital leaders will uniquely facilitate a more streamlined and robust compliance landscape.

Regulated institutions such as banks, FSIs, and law firms must continuously scrutinise the identity and validity of SMEs to assess and classify risk. However, despite being time-sensitive, these processes are typically inefficient. This unique partnership eliminates the burden by combining Umazi’s open-source permissioned blockchain platform, with Artesian : DueDil’s Business Information Graph (B.I.G™) to surface unique insights for advanced validation and verification at scale.

Speaking about the partnership Justin Fitzpatrick, COO and Co-Founder at Artesian : DueDil, commented: “Businesses have suffered the consequences of onerous due diligence requirements and backwards processes for too long.

By working in partnership with Umazi, our aim is to facilitate the cross-industry adoption of more streamlined and continuously updated due diligence. It's a solution that is faster, cheaper and more robust for both businesses and financial services providers.”
