COVID - a Catalyst to Adapt & Change

COVID has changed how we want to work. It’s an overused term, but as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, clients really do have a new normal. It changes their expectations for onboarding.

Facial Recognition & Document Reading

2Shakes offers a digital app (both on mobile and the web). It uses facial recognition and document reading to confirm a client’s identity. This approach has been very popular in banking and financial sectors. 

Lawyers Go Digital - Biometric

Your client uses their own mobile smart phone. They verify who they are, from wherever they are. Your using the same technology as NZ Customs Smart Gate. Biometrics that compare multiple measurements of your clients face against their photo Identity Document. The app ‘reads’ the identity document too. To checks it does not show signs of tampering. The system reads the ID details, ready to match against external trusted sources.  

Integrated with Government Data

Getting onboarding right means you are also getting compliance with government requirements right too. 2Shakes was developed with NZ government and utilises government data sources to ensure your onboarding process is accurate, compliant, and quick.  

2Shakes have developed super smart algorithms to use live data feeds from MBIEs Companies Office Register. You can determine who has (effective) control of customers and who the (beneficial) owners are in seconds. 

2Shakes verifies primary identity documents against the source. Either the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) Passport validation services, or against NZ Transport Authorities (NZTA) driver license database.
