Artivatic’s Video KYC Solution- Onboarding customers & Partners Remotely
The convenience of digital banking is when customers’ banking and financial needs are fulfilled from home. But the purpose is defeated if the first leg of the transaction, i.e., opening the account, requires you to visit a physical branch.
Until recently, most banks offered e-KYC as a solution. However, that required a visit to the branch to avail of the full suite of services. But now with banks offering full-fledged digital accounts, video-KYC is slowly becoming the norm.
A “Video Know-Your-Customer”, better known as Video KYC, is a procedure as the name suggests, is an effective yet automated customer due diligence process on the basis of the video. This process involves digital KYC via video call for the purpose of frictionless customer onboarding. Video KYC permits customer authentication by utilizing machine learning, OCR (Optical Character Recognition) data extraction, and face verification techniques in real-time.
In compliance with regulations for pre-insurance verification, digital KYC allows for a smoother process. As the video KYC verification process is contactless as well as paperless, a person applying for their insurance will be paying lesser than the initial amount while remaining safe.
With the use of the latest AI technology, this method is more accurate, increasing the security level through each process. As a person’s insurance policy can benefit them for a long time, video KYC verification ensures that all the information given is trustworthy without any fear of it being misused.
A process on Video KYC for Insurance Companies
The video KYC verification process for insurance applications is similar to a bank’s verification. Those applying from an insurance company will need to:
Visit the company’s website and schedule the video call.
Wait until they receive an SMS or email with the link to join the call.
Submit or upload their required documents.
A liveliness check will then be conducted as well as geo-mapping to verify the applier’s location.
A face verification check will then be conducted last.
