What is individual identity verification?

Building basic trust in business relationships is crucial. The starting point is verifying the authenticity and identity of an individual – whether they are a new customer, partner, supplier, or potential employee. Put simply, are they who they say they are?

Traditional processes for verifying identity can be slow, unreliable and depend on information from disparate sources, often meaning extensive paperwork. There is an increasing need to access online ID verification, also known as eIDV (Electronic Identity Verification) and KYC (Know Your Customer), to instantly confirm identity whenever anyone accesses a service online.

CR Identify verifies the identity of your new customers, suppliers or hires instantly.

Our specialist software collects data from governments, business registers, mobile networks, utility companies and more to form a powerful, global database that delivers reports and eIDV fast, - so that you can make smart and informed business decisions quickly.
