Biometric Signature ID, NFp to provide ID proofing, fingerprint verification

August 14, 2017 - 

Biometric Signature ID (BSI) has partnered with National Fingerprint (NFp) where it will provide virtual ID proofing and verification services.

By deploying BSI’s patented software, BioProof-ID, NFp is able to eliminate the need for costly in-person encounters and provide its customers with the ability to authenticate themselves virtually in front of a Trusted Observer from any location in the world.

BioProof-ID is a web-based platform that combines remote human verification of user identity, with BioSig-ID’s unique gesture biometric password solution.

“Our partnership with National Fingerprint, Inc. marks a historic milestone for BSI,” said Jeff Maynard, president and CEO of Biometric Signature ID. “NFp’s unique fingerprinting service is unlike anything on the market today and creates a new unique market vertical for our company. Previously, customers would have to schedule a physical appointment with a Trusted Observer who would meet to authenticate the individual every time fingerprints were requested. Thanks to BioProof-ID, these appointments can now be scheduled and completed remotely via a computer or laptop, 24/7 from anywhere in the world.”

Before implementing BioProof-ID, customers of National Fingerprint’s authentication solution would need to place their initial order online which would then prompt a Registered Trusted Observer to meet with the customer for a face-to-face meeting.

Using NFp’s patented Self-Capture Packs, its Trusted Observer would then verify the customer’ ID, acquire multiple fingerprint samples and deliver the samples to National Fingerprint’s lab.

BioProof-ID streamlines the identity verification process, allowing customers to begin the registration process at their leisure.

Once a customer places an order online, the Self-Capture Pack is mailed out. Upon receipt, customers can begin the registration process using any device at their convenience from any location.

During the registration process, customers will connect virtually with a certified BioProof-ID Trusted Observer via webcam who will then complete the identity proofing process and witness the creation of the customer’s unique BioSig-ID password.

ID verification for additional fingerprint submittals can be done in seconds using BioSig-ID’s patented gesture biometric technology.

“We are excited to partner with Biometric Signature ID as we expand our portfolio and product offering worldwide,” said Dave Allburn, founder and CEO of National Fingerprint, Inc. “BSI’s technology is light years ahead of the competition and puts us at the forefront of our industry. Thanks to their cloud-based solution, we are able to offer our services on a global scale and reach anyone at any time.”
