IDFEX / API Integration

Identity Verification & Validation Solution

One of the biggest challenges we face in modern times, is determining whether a person’s identity and contact information are truthful and accurate in making risk assessment decisions. Identity application forms, whether online or in documentation, are often filled out with phony or fraudulent information for a variety of financial gains.

Most consumers are honest and provide accurate and truthful information, however, there are some that are not. Risk Assessment is now becoming an important part of business procedure and due diligence and automating your procedures to quickly identify these risks is easy with IDFEX.

IDFEX plugs into our massive Australian Consumer Data Universe that contains an array of information that will ensure that the person of interest is not only verified, but also has the ability to be used as an automated “CRM updater” meaning calls can be made to the API to return new information, not presently known to your organisation or files. Queries can be scored from 0 to 10 and simply indicate whether we have an exact match, partial match or no match, or equally we can return the new or more accurate information for your records if required.

Our IDFEX API solution can be accessed in real time and seamlessly integrates via API into your software. It will perform the necessary Identity validation and verification checks to determine if the person is, who in fact they say they are and detect fraudulent information in an instant. But it does more than just Identity verification. See some of the notable features below.

Some examples of Call Queries from IDFEX;

  • Person Verify. This query will return whether the individual is matched to the address provided in the application or not. It will also provide a score on a partial match, in that a person of the same surname may be at the address, but not the person stated. This query is mainly used where clients wish to know whether any partial matches exist or not in an application;
  • Person Match. This is your traditional or usual Identity and Verification check. A consumers PII is entered together with their contact details and our system will simply return whether there was a match, or no match on any information provided. Matches are made against Full names, addresses, date of birth, contact phone numbers, email address etc.
  • Person Search. Used by hundreds of organisations that need to locate consumers across Australia. This is the search that powers our “Caspar Skiptracing Portal” except no staff are needed. The call is made to the API through many combinations and returns the consumers whereabouts and all contact information we have in the data universe on them;
  • Person Autotrace. One of the most popular API calls made by our clients in IDFEX. This query also powers our “Caspar Skiptracing Portal” and is simply an amazing and revolutionary search that return bulk loads of consumer search results in seconds.

This feature is saving organisations hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in staff man power;

It shows if the address is real, fake or partially correct in the application and a great tool for those companies providing goods on lease or hire purchase. Many organisations use this query call to eliminate “Return to Sender” mail (RTS) and great for CRM’s;
  • Address autocomplete. Ever wanted your CRM or online platform to autofill or complete predicted Australian addresses as they are being keyed in? With this query call, you now can.
