Since the pandemic has shattered in-person customer identification to a large extent over various sectors of customer onboarding, Kwik.ID has made speedy headway in its growth trajectory. 

The regtech start-up witnessed a significant surge in its Video KYC session volumes, with an 85% + completion rate, significantly higher than industry averages, promising each session to be completed in under 2 minutes. In a market full of incumbents, albeit a late entrant, Kwik.ID already works with clients across multiple verticals – Fintech, NBFCs, Banks, Insurance, Lenders, Forex,  and the list goes on. 

MonishSalot, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officerof KwikID said, “Design and technical excellence, and superior performance has led us to reach such a wide audience in a short duration. Our product is naturally scalable to 100x of the current volumes. We always strive to do better than before and aim to fulfil the needs of today’s businesses and audience by staying relevant to them.”

The platform is expecting a 300%+ growth in daily sessions from November, as most institutions have shifted their customer onboarding tracks online for a seamless, accurate and remote process, and as the businesses open up. 

Adding to Monish’s viewpoint, Abhishek Joshi, Co-founder and Product Manager of KwiK.ID further added, “The pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of our life and we need to come up with digital solutions to keep going. Kwik.ID Platform will continue to simplify the otherwise tedious process of safe and compliant customer onboarding and customer engagement. In today’s time, every time you get a face to face interaction with a customer, you have to make it count. It is not just about KYC. It’s about a memorable experience as well. ”

Various regulators and industry bodies have started seeing the potential of Video driven customeronboarding and KYC processes. This was only after the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDAI), Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has permitted Video based customer identification process for NPS account opening. As per Frost & Sullivan research, the global regtech market is expected to reach $6.45 billion by 2020.

Video KYC -The ‘New Normal’ across Industries

With social distancing becoming the new normal and businesses going completely online, Digital KYC is now at the forefront to onboard customers instantly, while keeping a check on their records and doing what’s best for business.

Having adopted the best video KYC tools available for their business, both financial as well as non-financial companies find it a boon that lets their business move swiftly. With features like OCR, Facematch, geo-tagging, fraud detection, functioning Video KYC at low bandwidth, Video recording and more, businesses are quickly moving to digital KYC. Here’s a look at how this much-needed tool works, or will work across various sectors.

Banking, Financial Services and Insurance

Banks: For every customer who opens an account with a bank, whether demat, current, savings, or any other, RBI mandates a digital KYC for onboarding the customer. Using Video KYC verification helps banks keep a record of each and every customer via their Aadhaar Card, and link it to the corresponding bank account to track transactions. In order to update customer details regularly, banks also use Video KYC for Re-KYC which makes the entire process much simpler and quicker. 

Asset Management Companies: For all Asset Management Companies regulated by the SEBI, Video based KYC identification offers full KYC to minimise the risk of money laundering. The authentication process is swift, precise, and paperless, leading to a reduction in costs as well as onboarding time. AMCs have now started using Video KYC not only for individuals but while onboarding SMEs and other larger enterprises too.

Insurance: Video KYC’s Liveliness Detection, Facematch and personal discussion features, like the ones offered by Kwik.ID are salient for insurance companies where fraud is more likely. These features enhance the experience for clients and reduce digital risk for companies.

Lending: SMEs and Fintechs choose to use Video KYC verification for lending processes to make quick and informed decisions, while also making the lending process faster and smoother for the borrower. Many NBFCs use digital KYC for individual lending too.

Wallets: Online wallets are quickly becoming the top video KYC users. All this while, customers were asked to adopt the traditional means of submitting their Aadhaar manually at a centre. But with Video KYC in the picture, e-wallet onboarding can be done in less than 3 minutes from the comfort of your home.

Non-Financial institutions

Employee Onboarding: For large organisations, especially those with over a 100 employees, choosing the best Video KYC tool is the smartest way to store employee data, so as to transfer salaries and EPF and safeguard the interests of the company incase of any fraud.

Online Alcohol Delivery: With online alcohol delivery becoming the ‘new normal’, sellers have to be extremely cautious that the alcohol isn’t reaching the wrong hands. Here’s where Digital KYC comes into play. Right from age-restriction checks, geo-fencing, and address verification, KYC – platforms like KwikI.D are designed for Regulated Entities, thereby adapting themselves to simpler customer onboarding.

Telecom industry: Something that we’ve all witnessed is getting authenticated via KYC while being issued a new SIM card. With the shift in selling SIM cards online, network providers are gradually moving towards Video KYC for contactless and quick verification.

Rental/shared vehicle economy: While customers have to opt for Video KYC verification to add money to their wallets, transport apps have to go through it too, to register themselves and keep their accounts operational.

Co-working spaces: As entrepreneurs and businessmen have begun investing heavily in co-working spaces, their safety becomes a matter of concern for the property owner. The easiest way to keep a record of all the employees is via a video based KYC identification.

Educational platforms & exams:  While this seems to be in the making, with the pandemic, it won’t be long before schools and colleges use Digital KYC to enrol students, especially for competitive exams where cheating is rampant.

Gaming: Gaming is one of the largest sectors that witness cybersecurity and fraud because there’s plenty of money involved that can be easily tampered with. Luckily, because of Video KYC’s AI integrated Facematch Liveliness and fraud detection tools, like the ones we offer, make it easier to detect and shut down these fraudsters.

At Kwik.ID, we understand the importance of security and the need to constantly evolve, especially while doing business online. As leading video KYC solution providers, we aspire to facilitate easy digital KYC across every sector, big or small.

Call Queues and Scheduling Made Easy With Kwik.ID

At Kwik.ID, we understand the importance of good customer service, so apart from striving to be the best Video KYC solution providers in the industry, we also strive to make the Digital KYC tools smooth and quick-paced. From handheld processes, AI-powered Facematch and Liveliness, to Video KYC at low bandwidth, we offer it all. Among the array of features are our call queue and scheduling feature, which promises 100% efficiency and customer satisfaction.

To onboard Digital KYC customers seamlessly, it is imperative to monitor these call queues consistently and lower the average call queue time to as low as 1 minute. This results in new sales opportunities, goodwill, and encourages brand awareness.

Here’s why queue call management matters if you want to achieve an above 85% completion rate from your video KYC verification:

Low Call Abandonment Rates: The longer your potential customer is kept waiting, the higher the chances of him dropping off from your business entirely and choosing a competitor. Moreover, by reducing call abandonment rates, your business can handle a higher volume of calls.

2. High First-Call Rates: Attending to a customer on the first call indicates that your business is a good service provider.

3. Minimised Costs: When you schedule a digital KYC session call with a potential customer, you reduce the hold time to free up the toll-free lines and receive more calls.

Sometimes, these rates tend to be low and costs aren’t minimised enough, leading to your Video KYC verification tool not working effectively enough. This can happen because of the following reasons:

1. Outdated Technology: One of our top priorities at Kwik.ID is to make our Video KYC tools compatible with every Android and iOS device, while offering Video KYC at low bandwidth. While outdated technology is definitely something that can lead to call drops even after queueing and scheduling, we promise a smooth process by offering comprehensive customer information before agents answer the call.

2. Under-staffing: Inspite of offering a host of features, even the best video KYC tool is nothing without enough agents who’ll handle the calls. Your calls might keep piling up and there’d be nobody around to respond to them.

3. Long Handling Times: A call attended to might take longer than expected because the agent isn’t cooperating with the caller or interrupting the caller.

With Kwik.ID’s video KYC verification, rest assured these problems won’t come into play with our carefully segmented call queues and scheduling, to maximise your success rate to over 85%. Our process begins by segregating the queues into two – standard queue and priority queue. Every potential customer is first put into the standard queue by default before they are assigned an agent. Based on the age, if the customer is a senior citizen, and/or based on location if a customer belongs to a rural area, he is placed in the priority queue. Also, in case a customer’s call is disconnected by an agent once or an agent is unable to respond to the customer’s request within the threshold wait time, he is placed in the priority queue. This queue exists to ensure that the applicant is served at priority and does not have to wait with another applicant again. Further, it eases the process for customers and helps them at each step, if they aren’t technologically equipped or are functioning on low bandwidth mode. The priority queue is checked before checking the standard queue. After assigning all the priority customers to agents, we then proceed to the standard queue.

For the best digital KYC call queueing and scheduling practices, we suggest the following:

1. Call Management: Keep call wait time shorter than 2 minutes to avoid call drops.

2. Queue Management: Monitor LIVE data from our dashboard

3. Funnel Management: Study what stage of the call customers are dropping off at, so you can identify the problem and rectify it instantly

4. Agent Management: Track your agents’ data carefully so you can solve any issues with their performance

Kwik.ID’s queueing and scheduling of call functionality, coupled with live dashboards for admin monitoring, makes Kwik.ID one of the best Video KYC tool for your business.

All about AI based Facematch & Liveliness Detection

As technology seems to be taking over the world, businesses rely heavily on Artificial Intelligence (AI), for almost every aspect of work. AI has seeped not only into your personal life, but also your professional life – from handling everyday tasks, aiding critical problem solving, onboarding customers seamlessly, and improving the overall customer experience.

With Kwik.ID’s Video KYC verification, onboarding customers is certainly made easy, but what makes it trustworthy are the Facematch and Liveliness tools that detect frauds, and prevent impersonation or identity theft of any sort. With the recent advances in AI and deep learning technology, face recognition accuracy has significantly increased.

Facematch and Liveliness are probably the most essential security features which ensure that the user is authentic and there is no foul play involved. High-speed and extremely accurate face recognition technology is based on convolutional neural networks of the latest architecture and most progressive methods of training. The algorithm is based on the neural network and a machine learning approach, unlike “traditional” algorithms based on mathematical model. While active 3D techniques detect movements like eye-blinking and facial movements, passive 3D uses internal algorithms to detect frauds, together making spoofing difficult for the user.

Facematch and Liveliness tools have been pathbreaking innovations in recent times, that facilitate easy and hassle-free business no matter where you or your customers are.

It is no surprise then that so many industries and sectors choose a Video KYC process over a traditional KYC, to ensure that their onboarding process is 100% secure and smooth.

Apart from just adopting Video KYC, here are some industries/sectors that have begun transforming with these tools:

  • Banking: For the banking sector, customer security and fraud prevention is of utmost importance. Facial recognition allows users to log in securely from the mobile banking apps.
  • Finance and Fintech: Financial institutions opt for facial recognition and liveliness tools for instant loans or users making regular payments.
  • Hospitality: Facial recognition is a preferred choice for verifying and authorising guests, especially at check-in.
  • Marketing: The Facematch algorithm helps you analyse your customers’ gender and age and allows you to evaluate your marketing strategy.
  • Trading platforms and exchanges: Facematch and liveness tools can be integrated into the platforms for distant account registration and verification of the account owner.

Other similar fields that choose Kwik.ID’s video KYC for its automated AI tools include insurance companies, brokerages, e-wallets, and NBFCs too.

At Kwik.ID, your data security and privacy have always been our top priority, therefore adopting these AI-powered tools for our instant Video KYC process was a pre-requisite.

The biggest benefit to you is making sure you aren’t being spoofed by a potential customer. But there are so many more benefits too:

  • Aids organisations in speedy KYC / authentication process
  • Authentication methods are efficient and highly accurate
  • Saves time and resources
  • Convenient and cost-effective
  • Determines real user presence during any type of financial transactions
  • Prevents duplicate ids and multiple account registrations for the same user

All of these features make Kwik.ID’s Video KYC a promising tool, which when integrated with your business platform, seamlessly differentiates between actual customers and fake ones. Also with Kwik.ID you will be able to enjoy Video KYC at low bandwith.

So far, after conducting over 50,000+ sessions, and achieving a success rate of over 85% on Video KYC sessions, our biggest learning has been that AI-powered tools have been a major success factor to build trust among KwikID’s clientele, helping us help you.

How to Achieve a Video KYC Completion Rate of Over 85%?

The world’s going digital with Video KYC verification to onboard customers instantly, and so are you, because you want what’s best for your business. But just as you’re closing the deal with a potential customer you lose connectivity and, in the bargain, lose your customer, too. That’s something you don’t have to worry about if you opt for Kwik.ID as your Video KYC solution providers.

Low bandwidth is just one of the many reasons why your business may not achieve its desired VKYC completion rate. Other factors include:

  • Customers being ill-prepared with insufficient documents before the Video KYC session.
  • Low lighting, which prevents the potential customer from being clearly detected by our Face Recognition Tool.
  • Customers not being tech-savvy enough.

There’s more to the list, but with Kwik.ID’s Video KYC solution one can be sure these hiccups don’t persist, and you achieve a completion rate of over 85% while onboarding customers in just 3 minutes. Every obstacle that lowers your completion rate is eliminated with our tools. 

  • Pre-session Guidance: Our tutorials make it easy for your customers to grasp the process better and stay prepared, well in advance, with the necessary official verification documents.
  • Low Bandwidth Support: One of the primary reasons for a poor Video KYC completion rate is low bandwidth, but with Kwik.ID you will enjoy all the benefits of Video KYC at low bandwith. In case the agent or the customer is located in an erratic network area, this feature will keep the session moving. Our minimum bandwidth requirement is also as low as 176 kbps. 
  • HD Quality: Our Facematch and Liveliness Tools are designed to adjust to low bandwidth, so no matter how poor the internet connection is, the data detected and captured is always HD quality.
  • Lighting Alert: Poor lighting is another major concern that leads to a drop in the completion rate. Before the session begins, our Light Detection tool studies the lighting around you and the customer and notifies you to move to a well-lit area so that the session can be swift and smooth. 
  • Inclusive Platform: At Kwik.ID, we push the envelope and endeavour to create an inclusive platform. To eliminate any language barrier and/or technical issues our Video KYC platform provides visual cues and assertive measures to guide with the process, so as to make it quick and intuitive. Our textual chat option also eliminates any linguistic issues that the agent or customer might face.
  • Tech Support: Customers who aren’t tech-savvy might shy away midway through a session, leading to a drop in the completion rate. To overcome this, our assisted Video KYC allows the customer to screen-share with the agent, requesting guidance for complex processes like Aadhaar XML Generation. 
  • Third-Party Elimination: Kwik.ID Video KYC’s straightforward interface connects the potential customer to an assigned agent with a quick click of a link, unlike many others that necessitate the need for an external app to carry out the session. You don’t need an app at all to do the Video KYC using Kwik.ID.

Apart from ensuring that your business can #KeepMoving with a high completion rate of VKYC sessions, some of our other advantages are:

  • Being 100% RBI Compliant.
  • Easy to integrate.
  • 100% Data Privacy.
  • Fraud Prevention.
  • Supports Chrome, Safari, Android, iOS.

So far our customers have achieved a completion rate of over 85% on Kwik.ID’s Video KYC sessions and apart from all the above elements that aid this success, our AI predictive technology is yet another factor that plays an important role in predicting a Video KYC completion. Using data like the customer’s location, psychographic, mobile carrier network, and more, the software predicts whether a VKYC session is going to be completed successfully or not. 

At Kwik.ID our business is to get your business moving. With an array of features and advantages, Kwik.ID promises to ease out your VKYC sessions, so you can onboard customer in just 3 minutes and conduct business, stress-free.
