Completing KYC / AML / CDD

This solution knows well the importance of the following acronyms:

identity document reader for KYC


Know Your Customer, shortly KYC is the process businesses execute to verify the identity of their clients – though varies between industries, its key task is verifying the identity documents first. The easiest way is using a purpose-built tool for that: an ID scanner.

passport verification for Anti money laundering


Anti Money Laundering, shortly AML intends to prevent criminals from disguising illegally obtained funds as legitimate income – that is often done by forged ID documents. That’s how automatic ID verification acts as a reliable solution for AML.

passport reader for customer due diligence


Customer Due Diligence, shortly CDD is the process of identifying the customers and checking they are who they say they are – focusing on the genuineness of identity documents as well, that is often checked automatically by ID scanners.

So many ideas put together in one compact scanner
