Digital identity verification in travel

Cutting edge facial and document recognition technology, underpinned with machine learning, can help travel suppliers offer customers a secure and seamless transaction process 

About the webinar:

The travel industry's digital transformation is increasingly about mobile, as more and more travelers search, shop, and book their travel using their smartphone. Mobile is convenient for customers who expect seamless and secure transactions, but, knitting together the requirement for this seamlessness with security needed by the company or provider is not an easy task.

Helping to bridge that gap are recent advancements in digital identity verification technology, which automate the process of checking IDs. By relying on digital tools to perform identity checks, travel businesses from across the spectrum can benefit. This can help keep the conversion rates high, costs low and the fraudsters at bay. 

You'll learn:

How digital identity verification can build trust between your brand and your customers

Why trust matters in today's digital travel ecosystem

Balancing customers' demand  for instant and secure transaction and payment processes

How successful use cases from different verticals can inform your own implementation roadmap
