Identity Check: How Are You Processing IDs? 

Document verification software has transformed the way businesses handle the processing of identity documents — whether driver’s licenses, passports, national identity cards, or other forms of government-issued IDs. 

As more organizations update their business operations to leverage emerging technology, they are discovering the benefits of intelligent optical character recognition (OCR) software, as well as other methods to verify the authenticity of specified documents, including machine learning, computer vision, and additional solutions that leverage artificial intelligence. 

Automated document verification can streamline user onboarding

It can also help organizations catch fraudulent documents a lot more quickly (and accurately) than traditional methods. If your business is responsible for processing hundreds or thousands of identity documents on a daily basis, it’s important to have an automated system in place.

Identity verification starts with identity document scanning – in other words, an organization’s ability to automatically capture, read and extract the pertinent data contained within an ID. When it comes to identity documents in particular, complexity abounds with significant variations from country to country and across versions as formats are updated.

Finding the Right Solution for Identity Document Scanning

Since the initial scanning of an ID is such a crucial part of the overall verification process, it’s important to find a nimble solution that can check off several key boxes, including the ability to: 

Finding a solution capable of reliably tackling all of the above may sound like a lot, but it’s also an apt description of BlinkID. As the industry standard in identity document scanning and extraction, BlinkID stands alone in this particular ring of document verification software. On the front end, BlinkID prides itself in delivering an optimal UX for end-users across devices and use cases. Compared to competing ID scanning software, BlinkID is 5x faster and requires two fewer steps, enhancing user experience and driving higher conversion rates (i.e., fewer abandonments).

Whether you onboard or authenticate users on a mobile app, website, computer operating system, or through custom hardware, BlinkID can seamlessly integrate on any platform. Our SDKs are available for mobile and in-browser solutions, while we also support implementation through cloud-based and self-hosted APIs. 

In a market where breadth of coverage is imperative, BlinkID is able to process more than 2,500 ID types from 140 countries — and growing — with support for multiple language scripts and design formats.

Software Features for All Your ID Scanning Needs

BlinkID includes a robust set of capabilities that can be tailored to fit your organization’s needs, ensuring the ideal ID scanning solution for your users.

For starters, BlinkID’s auto classification and smart image capture guides your users to a successful scan every time. When combined with AI-powered ID scanning that recognizes almost any document type while delivering clear, high resolution images, BlinkID delivers accuracy over 95%. 

If you’re worried about sensitive user PII (personally identifiable information), BlinkID works entirely on device, meaning document images aren’t sent to servers for processing. Plus, our field anonymization feature allows you to easily configure BlinkID to mask certain parts of an ID (e.g., redacted text or cropped images). 

If your business involves age-restricted products or services, such as alcohol or online gambling, our age verification feature displays a warning message when a user attempts to scan an ID with a date of birth (DOB) that doesn’t meet the requirement set by the service provider. 

Built With Security in Mind

Identity document fraud is a top concern for any business processing IDs. As document scanning technology evolves, so do the methods fraudsters utilize. 

As a result, any organization that fails to validate the authenticity of submitted documents subjects itself to the risk of deceptive activities. Conversely, it’s also important for organizations to provide impervious security measures for genuine users, to ensure that documents with sensitive information remain safe and do not fall into the wrong hands. 

Microblink is an industry leader in AI-powered scanning software and our Product & Engineering teams are exposed to the latest forms of document variations, document fraud, and more. We’ve scanned more than 12 billion identity documents and counting, which enables our BlinkID product to constantly learn and improve based on the vast volumes of data our core machine learning models are exposed to. 

Due to its document coverage, speed, accuracy and more, BlinkID is an ideal foundational component for any organization’s identity verification workflow – while delivering a frictionless user experience on the front end.
