Innovatrics upgrades its biometric onboarding solution
Innovatrics has released a pair of updates that will improve the document verification capabilities of its digital onboarding toolkit. The first is the Dynamic Document Detector in the company’s mobile SDKs for Android and iOS devices, which has been upgraded to allow document capture from virtually any angle.
In this regard, Innovatrics noted that document capture can be one of the biggest pain points in many remote onboarding services, as users are more likely to become frustrated and abandon the check-in if they cannot take an appropriate photo of their ID. Innovatrics’ improved document detector no longer asks users to place their document in a rectangular frame and instead activates its auto-capture utility as soon as the lettering on the document is clear enough to support OCR . This, in turn, allows the Innovatrics system to verify the authenticity of this document.
The other update uses NFC technology to bypass document photos entirely. To that end, Innovatrics has extended the NFC reading capabilities of its Android and iOS mobile libraries to allow compatible smartphones to scan the RFID chip in a machine-readable travel document. The analysis ensures that the document is legitimate and can extract the high-quality facial model stored inside the chip. By doing so, the technology supports smoother and more accurate facial recognition matching when that photo is compared to a selfie during onboarding.
The new NFC feature supports data groups 1, 2, 6, 7, 11, 12, and 13. This and the new Dynamic Document Detector will be available in Innovatrics’ Android and iOS demo apps, which allow interested customers to familiarize themselves with the comprehensive integration toolkit.
Innovatrics first enabled offline NFC document scans with a Toolkit update in August. The company also added a universal passport reader to the platform in September.
