Key Products / Services / Sectors (USPs)

The Signicat Open Identity Platform is designed to scale to your needs and help you achieve your business goals. We provide regulated businesses and organisations with verified digital identity solutions through our secure digital on-boarding, identity verification services, and regulatory compliance offerings.

The Digital Identity Hub, which allows you to connect with your customers, is at the heart of the Signicat offering. It includes connections to over 20 public and private electronic ID (eID) schemes, numerous social logins and registry lookups, as well as verification methods such as document scanning, facial recognition and live video detection. The Hub is easily extensible, meaning third party technology and verification method providers can quickly add new methods through our APIs.

The Digital Identity Service Provider (DISP) offers ‘identity on demand’ services for our customers, regardless of geography or eID. All identity information and agreements can collected in one access point, ensuring key data is never far away.

Our identity verification/assurance products fall under our ‘Assure’ offering, and provide the core technologies behind our ability to successfully onboard customers. We can ensure you meet Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements, which ensures all verification is more secure. We also offer a variety of methods for identity verification including using eIDs, document scanning, live video detection, and facial recognition.

Advanced authentication with Signicat Connect provides secure, customisable authentication, enabling repeat engagement with users. Users can authenticate via their eID, social login or mobile device, as well as a number of other multi-factor authentication methods such as SMS, hardware tokens and email.

The Signicat Sign solution follows international standards to ensure that signatures and seals are as secure as possible. In addition, Signicat is a QTSA and can provide qualified timestamps. By including such timestamps, you will be able to know exactly when the document was signed. Our electronic signature offerings have been designed to streamline business acquisition. We offer CRM integrations, business-to-business specific functionality, and multi-factor authentication prior to signing.

Document preservation with Signicat Preserve is required to ensure signatures and seals can be validated now and in the future, and is one of Signicat’s eIDAS services.
