Data from Challenging Data Sources

When it comes to data sourcing, anyone can get access to first-world country databases. Countries, such as the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Canada have built the infrastructure necessary to maintain digital databases with personal information about their citizens. The real challenge starts when second and third-tier countries come into play.

Second and third-tier countries are less sophisticated than their first-world counterparts. They often do not have well-maintained databases about their citizens. They sometimes do not have this information available in an online database as well. This presents a unique challenge to anyone who needs to access this data.

IDMERIT has gone above and beyond the competition to gather official data sources in some of the most difficult countries in the world. IDMERIT’s executives have worked tirelessly to create sophisticated systems that harness data from second and third-tier countries. Through this hard work, they have been able to successfully integrate these countries into their identity verification offering. IDMERIT delivers accurate and relevant match rates in these challenging areas.

Takes the capabilities of IDMkyc and takes them a step further. It is an ID scanning app which can verify if an identity document—national ID, passport or driver’s license—is true or not. It can then extract the information from the identity document and connect to IDMkyc to validate that it is real. It also uses biometric liveness detection to determine if the user who is using the system is the same person on the identity document.
