Desktop Bio Verification with Data: In addition to digital verification, this service allows businesses to acquire detailed information about their customers, enabling them to have a comprehensive understanding of their clientele.

Contactless Bio Verification: Leveraging the capabilities of smart mobile phones, this service enables contactless fingerprint acquisition and matching, providing a convenient and secure biometric verification solution.

Contactless Bio Verification with Data: This service takes the customer verification process a step further by digitizing the entire Know Your Customer (KYC) process.

  • I thought it’s some new fancy way for bio metrics.
    Why Biometric verification via face or retina is never under discussion. Fingerprints scanning has many issues for old persons, labor and persons having weak fingerprints.

    Giving APIs on current solution is good but should this be further enrichee with new ways, shall be appreciated more.

  • This technology by itself is not a good idea. Please think of all those people who have biometric disability or issues that make verification a game of chance for them. It’s a nightmare. Now you want to increase that nightmare? If you want to verify customers, have awareness of those that have difficulty with this tech and give them an alternative verification system. There’s tech for those too. How am I supposed to live in a world where not just banks and telecom makes me miserable, but now other businesses as well.

  • LMFAO, A solid game changer would have been VOTER’S BIOMETRIC VERIFICATION ??? 🤔

  • There is a major issue with old persons, like me, whose fingerprints are completley oblitereated. I had trouble opening a bank account, even went to NADRA office to re-take my biometrics who told me that I have no visible fingerprints. Then I have the same issue when I tried to renew my driver’s license who rejected it, although NADRA has verfied no finger prints. The DL office sent me to a remote office near the Wagah border for biometric exemption who told me that that it will take a while for the process. At this time I cannot renew my driver’s licence. Couldn’t NADRA just grant exemption to people whose finger prints are verified to be obliterated. This biometric that was supposed to make life simple, has become a nuisance. No other country in the world attaches that much importance to biometrics.
