Yoti identity verification

Synectics Solutions have integrated our state-of-the-art identity verification solution to enable their customers to digitally verify their identity from anywhere in the world. The product integrates seamlessly into existing business flows so that customers can easily verify themselves on a website, app or in terminals.

End customers simply take a photo of their official ID document and perform a liveness test to prove they’re a real person, and Yoti does the rest. Using a combination of expert AI and our team of super recognisers, Yoti checks their ID is authentic and matches it to their biometric template created during the liveness test.


What does this mean for regulated financial services?

Yoti’s partnership with Synectics Solutions offers regulated financial services institutions the ability to: 

  • Verify the identity of customers from over 175 nationalities to a high level of assurance through government-approved photographic ID documents.
  • Allow customers to prove who they are remotely and securely from anywhere in the world.
  • Digitally transform the approach to customer onboarding and customer due diligence.
  • Reduce onboarding friction in order to deliver products and services faster than before.
  • Enhance regulatory compliance through best-in-class technology.


Russell Mackintosh, Head of Partnerships at Synectics Solutions said: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with Yoti as it further demonstrates our recognition that improving methods of authenticating and identifying genuine customers lies at the heart of addressing issues of fraud and financial crime for our clients.

“As a company we’re committed to continually investing in the services we offer and Yoti’s [service] provides access to the leading edge ID&V technology to help our clients improve their ability to authenticate genuine customers faster and more effectively.”
