Why Do You Need Identity Proofing?

Identity proofing is often the first, critical step in the onboarding process for a new customer. This includes customers in such areas, but not limited to opening a new bank account, creating a new insurance claim, or applying for a mortgage loan. The identity proofing process is where the customer provides identity documents including ID cards and photographs of themself in order for a business to verify that the customer is indeed the person they say they are.

There are two steps in affirming the identity of a customer:

  1. Proving that the identity document presented by the customer is actually valid and that the person presenting the document is actually the person represented on the document (through facial matching).
  2. Verifying the accuracy of the person’s data with the other supporting information.

What is the Business Cost of Identity Fraud?

Identity fraud costs businesses money, not just the consumer victims. There is a huge cost in not getting adequate and correct identity information during customer onboarding. According to the ABBYY USA quoting from the Consumer Sentinel Network, some 3.2 million fraud and identity reports were logged during the year 2019 in the USA. Companies can become victims of fraud if they don’t adequately confirm whether the customer’s claimed identity matches their actual identity. This is the challenge solved by ABBYY Proof of Identity.

The software uses ABBYY USA’s innovative Mobile Capture technology which results in very high capture rates the very first time your customer captures an image of their ID document. This sophisticated technology resolves common quality issues experienced in less advanced systems including things like out of focus images, glare, photographing the wrong side of the document, and incorrect framing where a document is cut off.

Key Features

Reads ID documents, verifies and authenticates the document

ABBYY Proof of Identity reads the data from documents after detecting the variation of the particular document. Data is extracted from the machine readable zones along with any information that is human readable. After data extraction is completed the original document image is presented to the next step in an unaltered form to ensure complete authenticity of the original.

Facial matching and “liveness” detection

ABBYY Proof of Identity utilizes sophisticated liveness and facial matching technology in order to ensure that the person who is uploading the document is who they say there are. Special NIST rated facial recognition technology is used along with collective non-bias decision making in order to achieve a non-bias accuracy differential on the order of one percent or less between the race and gender of the person.

Includes trailing document support

ABBYY’s powerful ABBYY Vantage is used to extract data from supporting identity proof documents such as utility bills, income statements, bank statements, etc. These trailing documents are used to further establish the proof of identity for the person making the application. ABBYY Vantage provides pre-training data extraction profiles called “skills” which greatly simply the configuration of new types of documents. UFC, Inc. has created over two dozen ABBYY Vantage Skills in order to increase the ease of implementation.
