With the new year’s arrival, Veridas continues to drive significant product enhancements, primarily in the form of increased processing speed, improved fraud detection, and greater accuracy. All with the sole purpose of continuing to deliver the best solutions to our customers.
But it is not only product releases that we bring to the table. We have also redrawn our release calendar for the year by replacing the quarterly releases (Q1, Q2, …) with eight releases per year (2023.1, 2023.2, …) to deliver improvements more often, generating more value for our customers.
Finally, another new feature is the unification of release dates in our production environments (LIVE) in America and Europe. Today, January 13, we are launching the new features in our test environment (SANDBOX), and next January 5, they will go into production in all territories simultaneously.
More secure and accurate Digital Onboarding
Fraud prevention has always been a commitment at Veridas, whose solutions generate tangible results. Therefore, with each product release, we always bring fraud detection improvements, in this case, improving photo replacement detection algorithms for our document verification solution. The new algorithm achieves an accuracy above 97% in all geographies.
We also enhanced our funnel conversion rates between 2 and 6% by implementing document reading upgrades such as adding new OCR nodes for UK documents, reducing Character Error Rates for UK, Germany, and Italy, or enhancing MRZ decoding in all geographies.
At the same time, Veridas launched new SDKs for document and video capture, including more customization options while improving the overall user experience across all platforms.
Finally, we continued extending our document coverage globally, adding numerous identity cards, residence permits, and driving licenses. Check our document coverage here.
Faster face authentication
In the world of authentication, not only is accuracy key but also the speed of execution is critical to ensure a customer experience that drives the adoption of these technologies. In this regard, Veridas has achieved significant improvements in our facial biometrics engines, which speed up authentication processes.
Specifically, we have considerably reduced processing times by 25% in facial biometrics while reducing false positive and negative rates. This means a win-win for both usability and security.
