Mitek adds auto-capture support for identity verification through desktop browser
Mitek has announced an upgrade to add auto-capture to its desktop browser experience to enable rapid identity verification of applicants across all digital channels by customers.
Roughly a third of users opening accounts online carry out the process on a desktop computer, according to Javelin Research. Mitek’s MiSnap document capture technology now provides the same intuitive and guided interface for automatic capture of high-quality identity document images on the first attempt, the company says. The real-time image analytic capabilities of MiSnap ensure the quality of the image for rapid and accurate authentication.
“Today consumers expect to be able to do business across any platform or channel they choose,” said Sanjay Gupta, vice president and head of product at Mitek. “By bringing Mitek’s superior document auto-capture experience to desktops, we’re ensuring users get the same seamless and easy-to-use experience regardless of the device they are using. Our technology also improves image acceptance rates for authentication and onboarding. In fact, we’ve seen that images taken with MiSnap yield a 35 percent higher image acceptance rate compared to manual captures. This not only eliminates user frustration when an image is declined due to poor quality, but also improves the overall identity verification experience.”
MiSnap features guided commands for document placement and helps users avoid glare on the ID document, advanced image analysis which not only optimizes capture but also adjusts images for consistent and accurate processing, and a WebAssembly architecture for native speed performance and easy integration into web-based apps with a minimal footprint.
Mitek’s biometric onboarding technology was recently implemented by carsharing marketplace HyreCar.
