The Decision to Partner with Ondato
To address the challenges associated with identity verification and onboarding, Profitus sought a reliable solution. Traditional manual processes were time-consuming, prone to errors, and hindered the overall customer experience. For the best results, Profitus knew they needed to invest in an automated process.
In addition to this, Profitus employs a zero fraud tolerance and needed a solution for user screening. Recognizing the need for an accurate and efficient system, Profitus turned to Ondato, a trusted provider of identity verification (IDV) services.
The Benefits of Ondato’s Solutions
Ondato’s solutions prioritize compliance with the latest Know Your Customer (KYC), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) guidelines.
Implementing Ondato’s IDV solution proved to be a game-changer for Profitus. Leveraging advanced AI technology, the solution significantly streamlined the onboarding process, reducing verification time to under 60 seconds while maintaining an impressive accuracy rate of 99.8%. This efficient process eliminated delays and minimized the likelihood of potential users abandoning the onboarding journey.
Using our AML screening solution ensured that all PEPs and sanctioned users were identified in a timely manner and could be dealt with accordingly. This solution also includes an easy way to keep an eye out for any existing or new media that causes reputational risk.
Ondato’s IDV process is simple and effective, comprised of four key steps:
- Data Extraction: Users capture a selfie and an image of their ID document. Ondato’s AI technology employs optical character recognition and sophisticated spoofing detection tools to validate the authenticity of the data, accommodating a vast range of document types.
- Triple Matching: Once the AI confirms the legitimacy of the pictures and documents, it compares the biometric data from both sources to ensure a match.
- Background Analysis: The user’s data undergoes comprehensive cross-referencing against sanctions lists, adverse media sources, and politically exposed persons databases. Ondato’s extensive network of over 15,000 AML sources guarantees robust compliance measures.
- Wrapping Up: After successful verification, users can proceed with creating their accounts, confident in the security and integrity of the process.
