Accura Scan, Yoti and ID R&D selfie biometrics deployed for customer onboarding
Three new implementations of selfie biometrics for remote customer onboarding and regulatory compliance checks with technology from Accura Scan, Yoti and ID R&D have been revealed.
Properly architected digital KYC and remote onboarding with a common platform and united workflow, along with database checks and selfie biometrics, is already improving customer satisfaction, according to a panel discussion on a webinar recently hosted by GBG and RFi Group, SecurityBrief reports.
Attendees of the ‘Snap, Check, Go: The Digital Onboarding Utopia’ webinar heard that online mortgage applications are now preferred by consumers, even though consumer acceptance of that digital process has traditionally lagged account opening. Panelists also covered digital business regulations, anti money-laundering compliance, application processing times and identity theft.
“It’s now possible to have a pleasant experience, using a mobile phone, with a website on it to onboard people with scans and selfies are involved,” says GBG GreenID CTO Michael Harmer.
“Up until recently, you’ve needed to actually have a native mobile app for doing that, which is, of course, expensive, and people don’t like downloading them. So now that phones are much more powerful, web journeys are really workable and common.”
Accura Scan selected for new bank account onboarding
Accura Scan has been chosen by Qatar-based Ahli Bank to provide digital KYC through 3D selfie biometrics for efficient customer onboarding and verification.

Accura Scan says its identity verification services are affordable and can be rapidly integrated by financial institutions to reduce fraud risk.
