KYC and ID Verification

What is KYC?

Financial organizations have always had the requirement of identifying their end-users. A decade ago, most of these processes were done in agencies face-to-face and manual. The customer had to go to an agency to provide his credentials (including his ID) prior to getting his account validated. The agent was able to easily identify the end-user presenting his ID at the front-desk. This process is called « Know Your Customer » or « KYC ».

The evolutions of this approach

Digitalizaton of financial sector and emergence of new players like Fintechs have raised two new requirements when dealing with KYC:

  • Enable online ID Verification as most of these newcomers have a business online,
  • Automate the process to keep a high rate of online transformation.


Automated and online ID Verification become a key enabler for organizations facing this new KYC challenge.
