Innovatrics is trying to make its Digital Onboarding Toolkit (DOT) more user-friendly with the release of a new Digital Identity Service API. The API is designed to speed up the development process, and to make it easier for Innovatrics clients to use the Toolkit to add biometric capabilities to their own applications.
In that regard, the Digital Onboarding Toolkit enables the use of facial recognition. It is primarily geared toward remote customer onboarding, insofar as it can use facial recognition to match a selfie to the image on a photo ID. The solution will check to make sure that both the selfie and the ID are legitimate, and allow the onboarding to proceed if everything is authentic. In doing so, the solution helps organizations comply with their Know Your Customer obligations.
However, the API can also be used for more general biometric processing. That means that clients can use the API to create tailored applications that can make use of facial recognition technology in some capacity.
In any case, the API will help clients get those applications up and running as quickly as possible. The solution provides integrators with all of the identity management logic they need to create an app, and it embeds all of that logic in a single server component. As a result, the API is able to simplify the onboarding workflow, consolidating all of the data that gets collected during onboarding under the “Customer” heading for ease of use.
According to Innovatrics, organizations that use the API will be able to save weeks of development time. Those that adopt the solution can use it to set their own decision-making thresholds when dealing with new customers.
Innovatrics will discuss the API in more detail during a webinar on May 24. The company has upgraded its Toolkit several times in the past year, beginning with the addition of offline NFC reading capabilities last August. Innovatrics would expand on that utility with another update in January, at which time it also improved the solution’s scanning tech to enable the capture of documents at odd angles. The Universal Passport Reader is one of the other noteworthy additions to the platform.
