2020 Innovation Name: Video WebVOI – A Remote Verification of Identity Solution
Awards: 4th Most Innovative Technology Company
WebVOI is an online identity verification platform that allows lawyers to complete verification of identitys easily and accurately to the same standard every time. It provides lawyers with a solution that protects the private information of their client whilst ensuring their client is who they say they are. A lawyer’s client uploads their identity document, for example a drivers licence, which is checked for consistency. The client then takes a photograph of themself. Facial recognition technology matches the photograph to identity documentation.
Finally, video verification technology asks the client to video themselves speaking a randomly generated code in real-time. While WebVOI was launched prior to COVID-19, it’s real impact was visible when Australians were forced into lockdown but were still able to perform identity verification online. WebVOI transactions skyrocketed from 491 in November 2019 to over 10,000 by June 2020.
