The Evolution of Smart Document Capture: Transforming Challenges into Innovation

Table of Contents

In the early days of digital identity verification, many companies, including AU10TIX, operated through a B2B API. The process seemed straightforward: companies would send user IDs, selfies, or proof of address images, and a verdict would be provided. However, the industry quickly discovered that capturing a clear image of an ID or uploading proof of address was more challenging than anticipated.

Many businesses struggled with collecting high-quality images despite their best efforts. This led to a proliferation of issues such as non-valid IDs, blurred images, and irrelevant submissions. These problems were not unique to AU10TIX but were widespread across the industry, resulting in lower conversion rates and decreased operational efficiency for all involved.

Recognizing Shared Struggles

Through customer feedback sessions, it became evident that the challenges of document capture were not isolated to a few businesses, but a shared struggle across the industry. The necessity to adhere to regulations with minimal effort often led to inefficient document capturing, manual reviews, and follow-ups with end users. These issues resulted in delays, increased operational costs, and user frustration, affecting the industry at large.

AU10TIX: Leading the Innovation

Amidst the industry-wide challenges, AU10TIX stood out by taking a pioneering step. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive solution, AU10TIX harnessed its expertise to develop cutting-edge technology that would transform the document capture process. This commitment to innovation was fueled by a profound understanding of the shared pain points and a drive to enhance operational efficiency and user onboarding experiences.

The Lightbulb Moment: Developing a B2B2C Interface

AU10TIX’s transition from a B2B API to a comprehensive B2B2C interface was groundbreaking. This new interface offered a white-label multi-channel platform for both web and mobile, automation capabilities to simplify the capturing experience, an improved UI/UX, and better tools to monitor user conversion. The mission was to create a solution that provided quick integration, a seamless user interface, and robust automation and detection capabilities accessible through the front end. The benefits were clear—improved efficiency, reduced operational costs, and enhanced user experience.

And so the Web App was Born

AU10TIX designed the Web App (formerly known as SECURE.ME) to make integration seamless and provide top-notch security for customer verification. This multilingual, behavior-tracking interface helps teams spot trends and trouble areas throughout onboarding. Real-time previews and feedback ensure high-quality image captures, reducing errors and operational disruptions. With Smart Document Capturing (SDC) capabilities, customers saw higher conversion rates and lower costs from processing poor-quality images.

UI/UX Layer

A user-friendly interface was developed, providing clear instructions and feedback on document capture quality. This helped reduce errors and improve the overall user experience.

Tech Layer

Backend automation was brought to the forefront, ensuring that documents were correctly identified and processed with minimal user input. This automation helped enforce compliance policies and streamline the document capture process.

The Balancing Act Between Automation, User Experience, and Conversion

Introducing the Web App had its challenges. One of the biggest hurdles was balancing automation, user experience, and conversion rates. While automation streamlined many processes, ensuring it didn’t compromise the user experience was crucial. An intuitive interface that guided users effortlessly was key to reducing the friction often associated with document capture and verification. This approach improved user satisfaction and significantly boosted conversion rates.

Market Acceptance and Maturity

The Web App has made significant strides over the past three years. Analytics and customer feedback highlight its success—90% of users now utilize this feature, fully recognizing its benefits. Even older customers who initially integrated with the API have upgraded to leverage these new capabilities. This widespread adoption is a testament to the Web App’s value and impact in the market.

A Story of Transformation: From Assumption to Reality

The journey with the Web App was collaborative. Customers played a crucial role in shaping the product with their feedback, guiding continuous improvement. Today, AU10TIX stands as a trusted advisor, offering best practices and contributing to customers’ success, thanks to their invaluable input.

From being a pure B2B API provider to creating a comprehensive B2B2C solution, AU10TIX’s journey has addressed operational pains and established an ecosystem that fosters automation and efficiency. The story of the Web App is one of innovation, adaptation, and success—turning industry-wide pain points into stepping stones, leading to a mature, market-leading product that has redefined approaches and provided significant customer benefits.
