SAN FRANCISCO, California – July 15, 2015: G2 Web Services, a provider of merchant risk intelligence solutions for acquirers, commercial banks and their value chain partners, representing close to 60% of global merchant outlets, has become a Premier Associate Member of Western Payments Alliance (WesPay).
G2 Web Services chose this membership with WesPay because of their valued member relationships and premier knowledge surrounding the payments environment. This aligns with G2’s partnership strategy which provides ongoing benefits to their clients.

As a benefit to WesPay members, G2 Web Services is extending the opportunity for members to access an industry white paper. The paper is entitled, A Complete Approach to KYC with Business Customer Intelligence.With heightened regulatory uncertainty and rising regulatory pressure, financial institutions need transparency into their business customer, Third Party Payment Processor and Third-Party Sender portfolios to better manage their risk. While existing tools such as identity verification and transaction monitoring can help, they miss hidden risks that are vital to effective due diligence and compliance programs. This whitepaper will explain these hidden risks, and how business customer intelligence can help financial institutions comply with BSA and AML regulations while maintaining and growing their sources of revenue. WesPay members can access this white paper by visiting the G2 website.
