Why Vizor and not in-house?

  1. Experience has shown that the scope and complexity of building an effective secure system are significantly underestimated, and key resources are pulled away from your primary functions.

  2. Cost, logistics, and required skill sets are miscalculated, and the burden on an already stretched IT department is dramatically increased.

  3. System maintenance becomes a headache, especially when requirements change over time.

  4. The Vizor solution has been mapped exactly against the requirements under CRS and FATCA with over 60 validation rules inbuilt into the system ensuring that your jurisdiction complies fully with its international AEOI obligations.
