Evident ID upgrades AI-solution portfolio to verify over 3,000 licenses in minutes
Identity and credential verification platform Evident ID can now verify within minutes more than 3,000 types of professional licenses such as attorney, security guard, commercial driver, contractor (plumber, electrician, general contractor, HVAC), medical (nurse practitioner, physician, optometrist, veterinarian), through a single API, across all U.S. states to cut down identity fraud and build up consumer trust, the company announced.
Evident’s AI-powered Identity Assurance Platform helps companies ensure their employees and business partners have licenses, certifications and insurance coverage for their line of work. Any changes in license, professional status or insurance will be immediately sent to the company to guarantee regulatory compliance and lower business liability and risk.
“Our customers need assurance that when they hire contractors, employees, or businesses that have direct contact with customers, that they have the appropriate and most up-to-date professional licenses,” said Nathan Rowe, chief product officer of Evident. “At Evident, one of our key focuses is to strengthen our customers’ trust and safety efforts by enabling them to now verify more than 3,000 types of professional and business licenses against authoritative data pulled from over 300 licensing boards.”
In May, Evident ID raised $20 million in Series B financing to develop facial biometrics and expand to meet onboarding demand.
In September, the company launched a data privacy compliance tool called Verified Data Request (VDR) for Europe’s General Data Protection Rule (GDPR) and the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) to allow organizations to perform compliant data subject access request (DSAR) processes and meet “right to access” obligations.
