IDCheck.io is the leading automatic identity verification solution on the European market. It instantly provides the trust needed when starting on a new customer relationship (KYC) and helps fight document fraud and money laundering while offering an optimised user experience to maximise conversion rates. In today’s world of digital transformations, it is important to remotely know your customer.
This approach is formalised in a process known as KYC.
Financial organisations always need to be able to identify their end customers when opening a new account to strictly comply with national and international regulations.
A few years ago, most of these processes took place manually, face-to-face in branches. Consequently, a customer had to go to the branch to provide the required documents (including an identity document) to validate his account. This face-to-face visit enabled the bank staff to identify the customer through the identity document presentation.
This process is what is known as “Know Your Customer”, or KYC for short.
The finance sector digital transformation and the emergence of new players such as Fintech companies, collaboration platforms, transfers, and online gambling have led to new requirements in KYC processes :
Automatic remote verification of identity documents has thus become a key factor for all organisations dealing with the KYC challenge for the first time. Companies need to be able to respond to the challenges listed below.
ARIADNEXT bases the operation of its solutions on three pillars: fraud prevention, compliance with the applicable regulations in your business sector, and customer experience improvements. These three pillars rely on document verification using our IDCheck.io solutions.
ARIADNEXT is one of the only companies in the world, offering a fully automated identity document verification experience. Building on advanced developments in image processing and deep learning, IDCheck.io’s services enable companies to check the security features of identity documents, such as the compliance of the MRZ (machine-readable zone) and the consistency between the legible information in the document and the MRZ.
With ARIADNEXT’s IDCheck.io services, companies can quickly and easily fulfil their online KYC needs without investing in special development.
ARIADNEXT solutions, especially identity document verification and identity checking, are available in standalone modes to meet the specific needs of companies targetting to build their own applications, or as a complete solution known as MobileID.io to offer an onboarding and identity management platform.
This combines ARIADNEXT’s identity checking services with facial recognition services and authentication mechanisms to offer a complete KYC system in response to regulations such as eIDAS and the fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive.
Being sure that the person who wants to sign up for a service is who they claim to be, ARIADNEXT has now equipped IDCheck.io with a liveness detection service. This new technology offers robust protection against fraud without affecting the customer experience.
