Acuant and Bluebird Announce Partnership to Deliver Cloud-Based Identity Verification to Car Rental Operators
August 4, 2020
Acuant, a leading global provider of identity verification solutions, today announced that Bluebird Auto Rental Systems will now gain access to its industry leading identity verification solutions. Bluebird is a global leader in car rental software that will utilize Acuant for streamlined and secure customer experiences.
With Acuant’s trusted solutions, aimed to prevent fraud and manage risk, car rental locations will now be able to deliver a superior customer experience in a secure fashion. Bluebird clients engaged with Acuant’s platform will be able to solve problems in both mobile and in-store/retail location workflows.
Under this partnership, Bluebird customers will be able to leverage Acuant’s cloud-based identity verification technology, Acuant IDscan®, AssureID™, FaceID and Ozone® to provide seamless multi-factor authentication on any channel.
In one seamless workflow, a user simply captures their government-issued identity document (which is instantly authenticated via 50+ forensic document-specific tests), then takes a selfie with a liveness test to prevent fraud. The selfie image is compared to the image on their ID for accurate verification. The entire verification process takes less than 20 seconds for a user. Acuant technology protects personally identifiable information (PII) providing encryption to and from the cloud to ensure data privacy.
Bluebird’s flagship product, RentWorks is the premier car rental software used by franchisees and independent companies with substantial fleet size and transaction volume.
“We are committed to continuously improving our solutions for the benefit of our customers,” says Paolo Pannunzio, President of Bluebird Auto Rental Systems. “Our partnership with Acuant, a best in class identity solutions provider, will only help our joint customers have the best processes and best identity solution available to reduce fraud and increase profitability.”
“We build solutions that safeguard and improve consumer experiences wherever they transact with identity. This powerful combination with Bluebird is a prime example,” said Yossi Zekri, Acuant President and CEO. “We are always pleased to be on the good side of fraud, providing rental car locations the ability to prevent auto theft and deter criminal behavior linked to using forged IDs.”
