IdentityReach

IdentityReach is an automated digital enrolment and claimed identity verification service capable of processing high volumes of applications without requiring a visit to an application centre for biometric or document checks.

It should be considered in any situation where there is a requirement to verify the identity of large numbers of individuals, typically as a step in a registration or application process.  It is purpose neutral, easy to deploy and scale, and avoids the need to invest in a footprint of physical facilities because it works wherever there is network coverage.

All interactions with applicants are conducted via smartphone, using standard features to deliver: a biometric check, identity document input, and multilingual guidance through the application process.   This is coupled with an automated back-end process suite that verifies the claimed identity, authenticates and checks the validity of documentation, determines eligibility, checks for watchlist alerts and processes that application through to issue, rejection or referral.

From the public’s perspective this is very attractive because it avoids the need to visit an office facility; it works 24/7 from anywhere there is network coverage and typically takes minutes to complete an application, with no prior coaching or experience. It also was developed adhering to both Privacy-by Design principles and GDPR mandates.

From the service buyer’s perspective, it offers an accessible, secure and cost-effective alternative to the traditional option of biometric checks and document processing at a network of staffed facilities.

The service is designed to integrate and scale easily within planned or existing application processing and identity management ecosystems. IdentityReach is highly configurable and comes with a suite of management, workflow and monitoring tools that can be tailored to the needs of the Customer.

Markets

IdentityReach has applications in the Passport & Secure ID and Immigration & Border Management markets.

As a Secure ID solution, WorldReach’s electronic identity verification (eIDV) offers unparalleled security for both governments and their citizens. Using strong cryptography, the original secure electronic travel documents can be kept safe and unexposed while verifying with certainty that the individual is who they say they are, and that they have had valid travel documents issued to them.
Immigration & Border Management As an Immigration & Border Management solution, IdentityReach offers reduced processing and clearance times at customs and borders, allowing automated scans of the identity token and the individual’s biometric characteristics at border crossings and airport gates to verify their secure identity. This has the additional effect of allowing customs and border personnel to free up their time with issues that warrant more in-depth scrutiny.
