Marketing Compliance Automation: 4 Core Benefits

naehas-blog-featured-ir-top-4-benefits

Marketing communications professionals in financial services need to comply with a vast array of government and industry-specific regulations. Review of regulated content involves a manual, error-prone, time-consuming review process across a small army of marketing compliance, legal and risk management teams. The cost of compliance is reflected in companies’ bottom lines, both directly, and in time-to-market delays due to complex, lengthy manual review cycles. Organizations cannot afford anything that slows time to market or limits the number of marketing efforts to grow their business. The need for speed is real.

In banks, insurance, wealth management, and fintech organizations, savvy martech leaders are increasingly turning to innovative industry-specific solutions to drive better processes and profits. Confidence is critical, and trust is of utmost importance when selecting vendors who collaborate with marketing, legal, compliance, IT and digital services teams across the enterprise.

Not all technology is created equal, and with so many options from which to choose, selecting partners with deep industry knowledge of regulations and disclosures carries risks and rewards. Learning what options are available in such a fast-paced, competitive market is not always easy.

Multi-tasking, overwhelmed marketers are simultaneously focused on many top priorities. Marketing compliance, and finding ways to drive efficiencies and accuracy, are chief among them.

When the selection process allows martech staff to identify the solution team that best understands their unique needs, the results are measurable and sustainable. Once those automation tools successfully support the enterprise’s compliance goals, other use cases emerge, creating a strong marketing force multiplier. What’s driving these solutions in the market today? AI. Here’s why.

This summary of ways automation – specifically addressing marketing compliance needs – does the heavy lifting, and for whom, should bring relief. Here’s a look at the why behind AI.

What to ask?

Here are some important questions to drive the selection process:
  • Does the platform optimize, automate, and deliver greater control over the entire offer lifecycle – from strategy to fulfillment?
  • Can it help manage people and tasks?
  • Will it be able to send notifications to teams when changes occur or require additional review?
  • Does it have the capacity to collect documents and information in one place for easy reference?

Companies eager for a competitive edge in the financial services industry will increasingly leverage platforms and partners which understand their needs. Taking time to understand the options available is critical to realizing operational and financial gains.

As regulatory compliance, risk management, governance and transparency continue to be key focus areas, marketing teams who position themselves with innovative partners are best positioned to get and stay ahead.
