Technologies such as AU10TIX BOS enable us to offer our customers exactly what they want; a more streamlined account-opening experience in a much safer environment.

With AU10TIX BOS in place Monzo Bank boosts both attractiveness to customers and operating efficiency, while meeting KYC requirements and protection against ID fraud much more effectively than other banks. ID forgery and counterfeiting is already recognized as the primary driver of fraud and the reason for increasing regulations. Effective, speedy reaction rules out manual ID document “examination”. In addition to this, 1st generation solutions only automate document image content extraction and analysis but offer no effective answer to image tampering and counterfeiting.

AU10TIX BOS, the forerunner of 2nd generation ID authentication and onboarding already powers the world’s major financial services providers due to offering deep, pixel-level forgery and counterfeiting detection, better performance with borderline quality ID images, pinpointed exception reporting and multi-lingual support.

"Monzo is trying to making banking work for customers. Opening a new bank account has historically been a pretty painful experience - sending proof of identity through the post should be a thing of the past", says Tom Blomfield, CEO of Monzo Bank. “Technologies such as AU10TIX BOS enable us to offer our customers exactly what they want; a more streamlined account-opening experience in a much safer environment. As a bank, we can now open accounts for customers more quickly, whilst complying with KYC and money-laundering regulations."

“We are proud to have Monzo Bank join our growing family of clients”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “It is now evident that 2nd generation technology is challenging old practices and pre-conceptions. AU10TIX BOS is already powering some of the biggest players across a wide range of financial services, for a reason. It is the latest technology that can handle the type of traffic you can expect in online and mobile channels, and provide the complementary biometric security measure of matching selfies to document pictures, in seconds”.

“85% of fraud attempts involve the use of stolen, genuine personal data. If you do not check the image from which the data is obtained then you’re obviously inviting trouble…”, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX: “AU10TIX BOS is becoming market standard since it is doing just that. We are delighted to contribute to Monzo Bank’s competitiveness, security and operating efficiency. AU10TIX BOS does that at the most important point – the point of customer acquisition and onboarding“.
