RM compliant communication

The real price of NOT providing a way for RMs to talk with their clients over public messenger platforms


Communication between your RMs and your clients has to be compliant. It isn’t just time that is money. In today’s world, information and data have become extremely valuable commodities as well. Which is why when it comes to your business, you need to protect and control all your company’s data.

However, especially with the ever-changing world, the balance between having a convenient and compliant communication system is not always easy to strike. Clients often want employees to contact them on their WhatsApp or WeChat because it’s their usual way to communicate with their friends, family, business partners etc.

Hence, it’s imperative for RMs to carry out their conversations with clients over those public messenger platforms. And let’s face it, that’s not going to change. But you also need these interactions to occur in a way that is secure, under your control, and most importantly, compliant.

Without you having control over your communication system and data, there is also the risk of former employees continuing to access or even use your network. They can keep contacting your company’s clients. Recently, a large European bank launched an internal probe to see if confidential client data had been leaked. The bank found that around 50 employees had access to their corporate email accounts several weeks after being dismissed. This could be a major embarrassment for your company if something similar happened. You could also open yourself up to a lawsuit or come under the radar of regulators and law-enforcement agencies.

Compliance is the key
