FacePhi, iDenfy and Qoobiss win selfie customers
Spanish FacePhi will provide digital onboarding and facial authentication technology to BAC Credomatic, a South American financial group with 4.2 million customers in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua. It will allow customers to create bank accounts with a smartphone by first taking a validated government-issued photo ID. Next, the user takes a selfie that will be subjected to facial recognition and authenticates it for the financial institution’s banking and transaction apps.
“We look forward to tackling this project and contributing to the innovation efforts of an entity that has already realized that more than half of its banking transactions are carried out via online and mobile banking services”, explains Jorge Sanz, CRO of FacePhi.
Lithuania’s iDenfy partners with Alternative Payments, a Lithuanian fintech company, on a fraud prevention solution that leverages facial recognition.
The identity verification company says it can perform identity verification in less than a minute by scanning databases, identifying countries of origin of documents and automatically reviewing IP addresses. It also onboards and checks in customers with its AI-based facial recognition technology which boasts a 98.4% accuracy rate, according to iDenfy.
“iDenfy’s automatic document authentication, which quickly recognizes documents by type and country, has helped us achieve one of our goals: to have a faster and more secure identity verification process. Their user-friendly interface provides our customers with a pleasant overall experience, and for that, we are grateful to them,” says Mindaugas Rizgelis, CEO of Alternative Payments.
Romanian Qoobiss will now verify the identification data of customers of the financial institution Credius through biometric liveness checks carried out with a selfie.
Alexandru Rizea, CTO of Qoobiss, explains that its technology also scans identity documents, extracts the data, verifies the user’s identity and validates the document. Andrei Buzgan, CEO of Credius, explains that Qoobiss’ identity verification solution has reduced the time it takes to complete an online application for a fully automated online loan to less than 30 seconds.
The selfie verification process would take less than three seconds, according to a Qoobiss press release.
