Yoti and Post Office have been certified for additional identity profiles under the UK Digital Identity & Attributes Trust Framework (DIAFT) for digital ID verification for the Digital Barring Service (DBS) scheme. 

These new routes give candidates more choice and flexibility in the documents they can use to complete ID verification as part of a DBS check. This functionality will be live in the Yoti Identity Verification service at the end of November and is made possible thanks to a longstanding partnership with data insight specialist and Attribute Service Provider (ASP) Synectics Solutions.

Chris Lewis, Head of Solutions at Synectic Solutions said: “The partnership between Synectics Solutions and Yoti is based on a common goal – to support the creation of a Digital Identity market and to promote financial inclusion within it. The world and the way we navigate it is changing and it feels as though we are on the cusp of a new era, it is an incredibly exciting time.”

This is the same shared mission that saw Yoti and Post Office partner in February 2021. Since becoming the UK’s first government-certified Identity Services Provider (IDSP) in May 2022, they’ve shown the sheer power of what can happen when legislation meets innovation. With their market-leading offering of one-time Identity Verification, reusable Digital ID and In-Branch Verification, they’ve successfully partnered with the majority of the UK’s background screening companies.

That data is used as a force for good by partnering with public and private sector organisations to build data sharing syndicates that provide meaningful insights and help contributors solve common problems. The challenges that Synectics Solutions help to solve are around organised financial crime, money laundering, customer identification and financial inclusion, which can only be addressed through collaboration.

Synectics Solutions is trusted by tier one banks, insurance companies and the likes of the Cabinet Office. Very few organisations can combine data and advanced technology in that way.

Synectics has been in business for almost 30 years. Over that time, they’ve won a number of accolades for being technological pioneers – including The Queen’s Award for Innovation – and along the way they’ve helped to identify and save organisations over £7.8 billion that could otherwise have been lost to error, fraud or wider financial crime.
