Identity proofing that validates and verifies customers identities

Onboarding customers requires you to know who they are, confirm their details, and open their accounts without putting unnecessary barriers in the way.
Check documents have the appropriate format and data. Cross-reference data within text, machine-readable zones and on chips to uncover anomalies and detect holograms appropriate to that document are present to uncover evidence of tampering.
Make scanning their documents and faces quick and easy for customers and customize the application journey to your brand.
Seamlessly enroll facial biometric taken at application into the FICO Falcon Authentication Suite ready for future account logins and other transactions. Add additional factors such as voice biometrics and bind them to the customer’s identity.
Machine learning algorithms compare the applicant via their mobile phone image to the photograph in the identity document they present.
Use Machine learning algorithms or ask applicant to carry out instructions to determine they are there in-person rather than being spoofed by a fraudster using a photo or film clip.
Optical character recognition extracts data from the text, machine readable zone and chips on documents to prefill applications forms, making it easier for customers to complete them, streamlining KYC, and reducing error.
