AU10TIX, a pioneer of all-channel ID authentication and record generation, has met the challenge of handling images of ID documents produced using flatbed scanners, mobile phone and tablet cameras, etc.

UK’s leading fraud prevention service’s March 2013 annual fraud report for 2012 may have confronted banks, financial services, gaming services, government services and others with the expected: Tougher economic times foster surging fraud crime. Despite numbers being at a decade record, the fact in itself is almost obvious. What isn't obvious are two very disturbing facts:

  •     80% of fraud crimes are perpetrated online
  •     Till recently technology could offer only limited solutions for helping fight online perpetrated identity fraud

Standard technology solutions are heavily reliant on querying clients’ personal data in government or commercial referencing databases - from census to credit rating agency records and from PEP lists to past records. When services are provided online, these screening methods typically rely on data keyed-in by applicant (or fraudster), or on data typed-in manually by back-office personnel or scan-captured from document images (genuine or fraud) submitted applicant (or fraudster) online via upload or email.

Such traditional solutions are quite effective in handling standard printed documents but far less effective in handling images of ID documents. That’s because ID documents also contain encrypted data and security features designed to help ascertain the genuineness of the document – i.e. help detect forgery attempts.

AU10TIX, a pioneer of all-channel ID authentication and record generation, has met the challenge of handling images of ID documents produced using flatbed scanners, mobile phone and tablet cameras, etc. The company’s BOS (back-office service), already adopted by key players such as GB Group and SafeCharge, has proven considerably more effective than any alternative in handling high volumes of incoming client-produced images of a wide variety of local and international ID documents. Not only can BOS automatically identify document types and check relevant security features but it can also extract, decode and identify both readable and encoded datasets to enable crossing referencing them against internal or 3rd party database resources.

Enterprises using AU10TIX BOS have been very quick to recognize that this system not only enhances fraud protection and deterrence but also offers substantial operating efficiency benefits! These include faster customer processing, faster volume handling capacity, less data errors and gaps, less manual back-office processing needs, less paper-based operation, more effective KYC compliance capabilities, etc.

AU10TIX BOS back-office system complements the AU10TIX FDI front-office system, offering enterprises and governments a very cost-effective solution to cover all frontlines, using standard and existing infrastructures.
