HyperVerge, Experian and SmartSearch offer help for locked-down businesses
During 2019, HyperVerge reports that nearly a third of all adults in India used its digital KYC and video KYC onboarding solutions, according to a company announcement. The BFSI and telecom verticals alone accounted for 280 million digital KYC checks with HyperVerge technology last year.
With pandemic lockdowns in place, the company says its fintech stack is ensuring business continuity for customers in a range of industries, including digital lenders and asset management companies.
Experian has updated its CrossCore integrated digital identity and fraud risk platform to help organizations meet current challenges with self-service orchestration and faster performance.
CrossCore brings together Experian’s advanced data analytics and identity insights from its partner ecosystem. The new version includes support for dynamic API request payloads, progressive risk assessments, parallel logic, and an online business intelligence module for transactional volume reports.
Aite Group research indicates that digital channel engagement with banks has increased by 250 percent during the pandemic, according to the announcement.
“Now more than ever, businesses need to lean on capabilities and technology that will allow them to rapidly respond in these challenging times, increase identity confidence in every transaction, and provide a safe and convenient experience for customers,” says E.K. Koh, Experian’s senior vice president of Global Identity & Fraud Solutions. “This new CrossCore release enables businesses to easily leverage best-in-class, pre-integrated identity and fraud services through simple self-service.”
The digital anti-money-laundering (AML) platform from SmartSearch now includes a biometric facial recognition feature to provide visual remote ID confirmation for KYC, politicly-exposed persons and global sanctions checks during pandemic lockdown conditions.
The combination of biometrics with ID document and address checks enable the full onboarding process to be carried out remotely, the company says.
“Electronic checks using credit reporting data will bring to light any discrepancies in a client’s personal history and clearly flag up where further action is required. Facial recognition is the icing on the cake, giving businesses that crucial extra reassurance that the person they are dealing with is on the level,” states SmartSearch CEO John Dobson in a press release.
“With many elements of social distancing likely to remain in place for some time to come, doing this in person, face to face, is no longer possible. Our facial recognition feature means our clients can do everything remotely – protecting their businesses from fraudsters and their staff from exposure to Covid-19.”
