Tenant launches biometric ID verification for self-storage, Scrive uses Onfido for eID verification



Tenant Inc has released Mariposa, a marketing website technology with facial recognition for ID verification that self-storage providers can use to rent to customers online, the company announced.

Mariposa is embedded in Tenant’s proprietary software through its property management software, dubbed Hummingbird. The combination of the two software elements introduces the concept of Touchless Rentals and an innovative digital identification verification system for the self-storage industry, the company says.

“We are proud to offer this first-of-kind technology to self-storage owners seeking the most efficient ways to attract and retain customers,” said Lance Watkins, CEO of Tenant Inc, in a prepared statement. “Verifying a prospective renter’s identity with data not only protects the owner from unknown risk, it initiates good relationships and instills loyalty with customers who want to interact digitally. This is the most common request we’ve received since pioneering online rentals.”

Mariposa is an omnichannel technology that provides users with a contactless process combining artificial intelligence-based analytics, a 128-point digital identification verification system and biometric facial comparison to match a selfie with the image of a government ID and immediately authenticate a renter’s identity.

The Touchless Rentals technology enables digital self-serve features such as electronically renting and signing documents. It optimizes enrollment for insurance coverage, automatic payment, door access and online account information.

“Our self-serve digital platform, when integrated with Hummingbird property management software, allows unprecedented convenience for the self-storage industry,” Watkins added. “Together, the two enable a higher level of efficiency in converting reservations to rentals virtually and providing a better experience overall for both managers and customers.”

Onfido partners with Scrive for biometric identity checks

Onfido has partnered with eSignature and document management company Scrive to enable secure global online identity checks, the company announced. Onfido is now available in the Scrive eSign service and eID Hub identification platform.

With its e-signing and identification platforms, Scrive already provides electronic identity to establish trust in a digital environment. However, eID schemes are not available across most countries. Since Scrive has customers operating worldwide, integrating Onfido’s AI technology will secure identity verification in 195 counties.

For identity verification, Scrive users have to take a selfie and a photo of their government ID. The algorithm will analyze if the ID is genuine and match it to the selfie. Onfido currently supports more than 4,500 types of documents from 195 countries.

“This is a game-changer for our customers,” said Scrive CEO Viktor Wrede, in a prepared statement. “In one quick leap, they now have a secure method for identifying their customers and partners almost anywhere in the world. When signing agreements, onboarding and performing high-risk transactions, the vast majority of countries don’t have a national eID like Swedish BankID. And even where eIDs are available, Onfido can provide an additional layer of security when required.”

“As we move from a physical to a digital world, businesses shouldn’t have to choose between simple user experience and secure identity verification,” said Husayn Kassai, CEO and co-founder at Onfido, in the release. “We bring trust to digital interactions worldwide, and we’re very happy to be supporting Scrive’s rapid expansion into new markets. We pride ourselves on delivering seamless access to online services that both detects and prevents fraudulent attempts while enabling the business to scale.”
