Avoka, the provider of frictionless digital customer acquisition for financial services, today announced an agreement with Mitek, a global leader in mobile capture and identity verification software solutions. This means Mitek’s suite of identity verification products will be fully integrated within Avoka’s Transact offering as part of a complete customer acquisition solution, now available to global customers under one single software license. The partnership, built on years of alignment between Avoka and Mitek, simplifies integration with banks’ own systems, speeding up time to market for implementation.
The Mitek products will be available as options in the Avoka Transact® platform. In addition to Mitek’s Mobile Fill®, Avoka is adding Mobile Verify® and Mobile Docs™ to offer banks a seamless account opening process that empowers customer to complete an online application for consumer banking products, such as credit cards and loans, and fully verify their identity digitally, eliminating the need for a physical bank branch visit. This approach will significantly reduce application abandonment rates, an inhibitor to true real-time digital customer acquisition for banks. This technology also helps banks achieve KYC/AML compliance.
