Easter 2021 Update

How was your month?  Over the last year we’ve seen big swings up and down for the sectors our customers operate in.  Last month we saw more activity across the board, which hopefully bodes well for the wider economic recovery from covid.

As well as supporting all that awesome activity, we’ve had a busy March with conferences in Wellington and Auckland, and our team is getting bigger too.


Great to see everyone who was able to attend the ATAINZ conference in Wellington. Thanks to everyone who came by the stand to have a chat – we love hearing your stories of how 2Shakes helps you, and getting great ideas on areas we can develop to help even more!

Here’s a wee collage of some awesome people who took part in a ‘Mugshot for a Mug’ promo.  Remember to have your mugs ready for our coffee webinars

Congratulations to prize draw winner Sally Toon from Accounting & Tax Studio who took home the box of delicious Bohemein Chocolates. Hope you enjoy them, Sally!


Postponed due to lockdown earlier in the month, LawFest went ahead in Auckland on Tuesday.  This legal tech and innovation conference was a great place to meet lots of business people looking for a solution to their problems.  We loved chatting and explaining how 2Shakes can help.

Financial Advisers

2Shakes already helps Financial Advisers comply with AML.  But we want to go further, and help them meet all their updated client onboarding and authority requirements.  If you are a Financial Adviser, or know one who would be interested in co-designing with us and our early adopter community, please get in touch here.

Welcoming Cassidy

We’re excited to introduce Cassidy Mowat, who will be joining the 2Shakes team next week. Cassidy will be joining our development team as we continue our goal of making 2Shakes NZ’s favourite onboarding and AML CDD platform. Great to have you onboard, Cassidy!

Biometric Addon Reminder

We launched our Biometric IDV addon back in December, and have been really pleased with everyone’s usage and feedback over the last three months.  Thanks!

Please remember that the free trial period ended 31 March. From today, the Biometric addon option will be charged as $7.50 on top of the existing electronic IDV cost.  So, a Biometric + Electronic ID verification, including address and PEP check, is now $12.50 plus GST in total.  We think that is great value.

If you have used the Biometric option, we would love to know how you found it! Please send your feedback to  Thanks!


  • Biometric ID Verification
    If you can’t meet your client or a beneficial owner face to face, it’s a perfect opportunity to our Biometric ID Verification. See our biometric webinar
  • New services? Fee changing?
    If your fees, services, T’s & C’s are changing, you can renew the client agreement in 2Shakes for free! Find out more on renewals here.
