AI API-first strategies for customer onboarding

Embracing the ‘API Economy’ has moved from being a buzz phrase to a key mandate in digital transformation.

Now that having an API strategy has become pertinent, let us look at how Arya APIs can be used to automate the customer on-boarding process with some specific examples.

API-led customer on-boarding strategies:

Strategy 1: Collect and Validate documents

In Financial services and banking, customers are required to submit various documents and KYC as a part of on-boarding process. Manually collecting, matching and verifying these documents against government sources can prove to be a tedious and time consuming process, which is also prone to errors.

The above mentioned APIs can be combined to create an on-boarding process as follows:

Strategy 2: Instant information validation

In some cases, while organizations ask for document copies for record keeping purposes, in compliance with regulations, sensitive customer information (eg. Aadhar number) should be masked from the document to avoid misuse or identity theft.

This can be resolved by integrating the ID masking API in the process. Collection, verification and masking of sensitive data can all be integrated in a single API-driven process.

Strategy 3: Accelerate data validation and mitigate fraud
The insurance industry, preventing fraud is pivotal to successful customer verification. Insurers look for solutions providing accurate Digital identity verification, along with the best customer experience.
