The digital ID verification company joins the OIX to ensure safe, simple and inclusive access to digital IDs, across all sectors, globally.
London, UK. 29 November 2022 - World-leading digital ID verification company OCR Labs Global, has joined the Open Identity Exchange (OIX) community to help ensure digital ID is inclusive and can be adopted easily across the globe.
OCR Labs Global is driven by a mission to enable effortless user ID verification for anyone, anywhere and at any time, which connects strongly with OIX’s vision to facilitate a world where everyone can all prove their identity and eligibility anywhere, using a simple universally trusted ID.
The approach that OCR Labs Global has brought to the ID verification market is unique. It is the only provider with proprietary deep learning engines that allows it to control the entire identity verification flow without human intervention. As a result, since launching in 2018, it has rapidly secured a global presence and now has certification under the UK Digital Identity & Attributes Trust Framework as a digital identity service provider (IDSP). It was also the first commercial entity to be accredited at the highest level under the Australian Government’s Trusted Digital Identity Framework.
By joining the OIX community, and with a strong focus on inclusivity, OCR Labs Global hopes to better understand the key issues impacting the UK and US markets, and help drive positive changes by pushing the way IDs are verified to the next level.
Russ Cohn, General Manager EMEA for OCR Labs Global, said: “With the mass migration online in recent years, adoption of digital ID has become key to ensuring security, privacy and convenience for everyone involved. High quality, certified ID verification is a vital part of this process.
“It’s no longer just about banking and gaming. From right to work, right to rent, to exam testing, renting vehicles and even online dating, ID verification has become crucial to enabling people to participate in wider society. However, recent years have brought to light the shortfalls in existing ID verification processes with many people struggling to access key services. We believe there are better, technology driven ways to ensure safe, simple and inclusive access and we want to help move all sectors forward.
“OIX has a broad membership of vendors, trade bodies and global organisations, as well as influence with key stakeholders in the digital ID ecosystems. Its role in educating and progressing digital ID has been significant and we are pleased to be joining the movement.”
Nick Mothershaw, Chief Identity Strategist at OIX, said: “OIX is technology agnostic and our members come from a wide range of competing business sectors. The focus is on ensuring digital ID works for everyone involved – from vendors, governments and trust frameworks creators to acceptor of digital IDs and end consumers.
“OCR Labs Global will bring a unique perspective to existing processes and a keen desire to move markets forward. It fits well with our own work to ensure best practice, as well as support and educate all stakeholders. Its membership will help to further strengthen the work we are doing across the globe. We are delighted to be welcoming OCR Labs Global into the OIX community.”
