Instant Address & Location Verification Via Utility & Telco Providers
Traditional processes rely on manual review of paper documents and most paper bills are extremely easy to fraud and difficult to verify due to a lack of security features. OCR can automate data capture, but still requires the customer to locate or print a copy of a recent bill adding friction to onboarding.
With over 6,000 utility and telco providers across the globe, we are able to offer your business a global, verified source of utility data that is current, complete and 100% consented by your customers. Data is returned directly from the customer’s utility provider, eliminating risk of forgery opportunities for data manipulation unlike physical bills.
Our fully automated solution allows you to reduce the costs of manual processes, reduce fraud, improve the customer experience and boost confidence in customer identity and address.
