Operating in many countries makes it hard to meet KYC regulations

When you do business online you must be able to quickly and reliably perform multi-tiered KYC checks in order to meet regulatory compliance requirements, manage risk, and satisfy internal and external stakeholders. Manual processes of running KYC checks cost a company time and money as they hire a due diligence team and attempt to build and maintain relationships with various key identity authorities.

Reliably perform real-time ID checks across Africa

Combining reliable modern APIs, machine learning-based fraud detection, de-biased face recognition and trusted relationships with governments in Africa’s largest economies, Smile Identity can perform real time digital KYC and identity verification for dozens of ID types across Africa.
