    What’s the deal: Danish fintech HelloFlow, launched in 2020, integrates ID authentication services in local markets, offering a plug and play platform for client onboarding that businesses can utilize for processing — absolutely no coding required.

    Underlying trends: SaaS, No-code

    Why it matters: After a series of international scandals and scams, the focus on anti-money laundering and stricter regulatory requirements is increasing.

    In the wake of such changes, finance businesses are looking for new onboarding solutions.

    Through its no-code platform, HelloFlow claims to offer cost-effective services, high conversion rates, and a reduction in operational onboarding costs of up to 90%.

    Our take: Without doubt, HelloFlow’s no-coding solution is a great option for client onboarding, but the industry is swarming with competitors — PXL Vision AG, ID-Pal, and many more.

    The industry is huge and its continued exponential growth means there is plenty of scope for new companies to achieve success; to compete with the big boys, however, there needs to be a strong product market fit.
