We are pleased to announce that the biggest update ever to Partners is now live!

 

At ThisIsMe we are constantly striving to improve our services by listening to our customers and embracing leading technologies. Over the last year we have seen a huge amount of interest in our Partners Portal, used by those clients who aren't able to link directly to our API services but still need an easy and efficient way to perform KYC checks. Our Partners web portal gives users immediate access to the most powerful KYC tools available, with no integration or experience required. We have listened to the feedback from clients and have embraced the growing demand for Partners by working on a comprehensive new update.

It includes an all new look with added functionality, as well as a range of new and improved services. This will not only make it a more enjoyable and seamless user experience but also easier for you and your business to truly know your customer. 

New Styling

The partners interface and layout has always been highly praised for its simplicity and ease of use. That’s why we have built on the existing framework to maintain the same user friendly experience that customers have come to love, while adding new style elements and functionality that only adds to the experience.

With a new look dashboard, your key statistics are clearly summarised as soon as you log in, giving you more information and more control. The update also means that Partners is now fully responsive and mobile friendly, allowing you to access Partners from any device, wherever you are.

New Services

Over the past few months we’ve been hard at work building more advanced validation and verification services, which will allow your business to reduce risks, threats and fraud attempts arising from everyday business activities, especially when transacting with new customers. We have built all of these new services into Partners, giving any business, no matter the size or industry, the ability to perform in depth KYC and due diligence at the click of a button. These new services include: 

 

  • Deeds Lookup; provides extensive information about any property in South Africa, so you can make sure the house your customer claims to own is actually theirs.

 

  • Company Lookup; utilises the CIPC (Companies and Intellectual Property Commision) database to ensure you are dealing with a legitimate, registered business and the person claiming to be a director, is not a fraudster.

 

  • Mobile2ID; will return a list of known Identity numbers linked to any submitted mobile number, along with the relevant details for those Identities.

 

  • Credit Scoring and Reports; gives you the most up to date credit score or extensive credit report on any individual or business, ensuring the person you are lending money to has a good track record.

 

  • Email Validationwill ensure that any submitted email address is legitimate and deliverable, as well as let you know if that email has been involved in any data breach incidents which may leave it vulnerable.

 

  • Mobile Checkwill ensure that any submitted mobile number is legitimate and deliverable, as well as all past and present carrier information.

 

  • Photocomp; gives you the power to compare two faces to each other by submitting any two photos. Our system produces a match score, allowing enhanced verification and due diligence for a variety of requirements.

 

Please don't hesitate to get in contact if you would like further information on any of our new services, how they can benefit you and how you can get started today.

KYC Express

The Pièce de Résistance of all our new offerings, is an all encompassing solution named KYC Express; which combines new and existing services to quickly and comprehensively know your customer. It achieves this by performing multiple checks at once, selected by you, only using an ID or Mobile number to get a complete picture of your customer. KYC Express is solely available in the Partners Interface and once you experience the speed, simplicity and richness of information, it will be the only KYC solution you ever use. 

New Data Policy

In order to keep up to date with local and international data retention policies and regulations, most notably POPIA (in South Africa) and GDPR (in Europe), we now only store payload data from past requests for 72 hours.

Complying with these regulations is not only necessary to avoid fines but is also best practice for any business. Compliance limits the risk faced as a result of any potential data breach or hacking attempt on your systems and adhering to these policies helps to protect your business, your customers and your reputation.
