Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Making the ID verification process entirely automated and error-free

Making the ID verification process entirely automated and error-free

greenID’s OCR technology recognises and extracts important data points from your customer’s ID document (name, document number etc.) which are required for identity verification. It utilises the details we have in our document library, recognising the format of the document, where the data fields are located and how it’s formatted.

Our OCR technology extracts and validates the relevant data for populating corresponding form fields. In the final step, it accurately auto-fill forms to minimise entry errors and speed up the onboarding process.

How OCR works?

User displays their ID in front of the camera. Data from the ID (Name, address, DoB etc.) is automatically extracted automatically by OCR technology

User is provided the option to edit or add more information in the form.

greenID completes the verification process based on the ID and extracted information.
