The Credit Enquiry Process

The Business User performs a standard Credit Enquiry on the Client, selects 'Aply' from the list and clicks next.

They then need to check that the Client Name and Mobile phone number is correct and click Next.

The Client receives a link via a text message which will step them through document scanning and biometrics without the need to download an 'application'. The link is sent via Text because the Client receiving the link needs to be able to access their camera in order to complete the biometrics.

finPOWER Connect receives the results once the Client has completed the steps required. A partial screen shot of the results is shown below:

As you can see from the screen shot, the outcomes include not only Biometrics but Tampering Checks, Location and PEP Watchlist. Clicking on the 'View Report' button will open a PDF document created by APLYiD which shows the following:

  • Overview, including whether the Outcome is a Pass or Fail.
  • Submitted data
  • ID Document Data
  • A copy of the ID Document
  • Tampering Checks
  • A Summary of the data source searched
  • Face Scan and how the pictures compare
  • Face match and 'Liveness' breakdowns.

The PDF document is a permanent record which will reside on the Client Logs, whereas the data captured within the APLYiD site will be archived after 6 – 7 days.
