Drover deploys Onfido identity verfication technology to onboard new users

 

Mobility-as-a-service platform Drover has deployed Onfido identity verification technology to quickly onboard and get new users on the road. Drover offers flexible car subscriptions for an all-in-one monthly payment. It promises a 100% online sign-up experience, with cars delivered in as little as 48 hours.

According to the announcement, Drover chose Onfido for identity verification because of its superior user experience. Onfido’s ability to offer additional assurance through its facial checks was also an important deciding factor.

Drover users take a photo of their government-issued identity document; Onfido then checks that the government ID is not fraudulent, and cross-references it against a range of international databases. Onfido’s machine learning-based technology completes the process in seconds so Drover can onboard more users with less manual intervention and resource.

“We’re proud to be supporting Drover as they scale,” comments Husayn Kassai, CEO of Onfido. “Balancing security against a smooth user experience is a challenge for many businesses, but our AI technology means we’re able to help Drover deliver both. Reducing risk and building trust is core to both of our businesses, so the partnership is a natural fit.”

Onfido was among eight firms recently accepted to participate in the Global Financial Innovation Network’s cross-border regulatory sandbox.
