What prompted a banking client to shift to Digital Address Verification instead of the conventional physical address verification?

Speed up your customer verification process using TruthScreen™ –our AI-powered flagship platform that enables faster account opening and onboarding.

One of our clients from banking sector, as a usual process, initiated verification request for their new employees and address verification was a part of the scope. In the light of COVID 19, we suggested them to adopt our new Digital Address Verification solution that requires absolutely zero physical contact and faster verification results.

While the client was contemplating whether to adopt the solution or not, an immediate and unavoidable onboarding need arose in their company. Soon after the lockdown relaxation, they asked us to conduct physical address verification in the interim for that candidate. Our field agent went to verify the address after the regular temperature checks for 14 consecutive days and completed the verification.

However, the candidate later started worrying that they may have exposed themselves and their family to a health hazard. The bad candidate experience came as a feedback and was enough for the organisation to realize and improve on it. Once bitten, twice shy, our client immediately took the decision of deploying Digital Address Verification going forward.

Our methodology

Upon been given a green signal for digital address verification, we just needed one input from the client – mobile number of candidates. The addresses of candidates were then verified in three simple steps:

  • Auto population of candidate details through a form sent on the phone number of every candidate
  • Verification of details or addition of other details by candidate along with a selfie, photo of an ID and live photo of the residence
  • Automated GPS coordinate tracking upon the submission of the form

Results

  • Quick, cost-effective, and contactless address verification
  • A fuss-free and simple onboarding journey led to a better candidate experience

Conclusion

A Digital Address Verification is a great technology to have in your digital toolkit in the times of COVID 19. It even costs lesser than physical address verification and helps in accelerating verification and onboarding of selected candidates. By adopting this solution, our client was not only able to remove a major roadblock from their onboarding process but was also able to come across as a technology-friendly employer.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
