Our team has developed Medallion®, a web-based application that offers a user-friendly solution for authentication. Medallion® simplifies the authentication process with its single-button approach, redirecting users within your application to complete the verification seamlessly.

The advantages of Medallion™ over traditional API methods include a streamlined user experience, real-time feedback, automated ID type recognition, and time efficiency. Its multi-layered approach enhances security and prevents fraud, enabling businesses to establish trust and mitigate risks in digital interactions.

Medallion® also provides a range of identity verification services, including facial recognition, liveness detection, knowledge quizzes, background checks, criminal checks, sexual offense checks, DMV/MVR checks, and more. To ensure robust verification, Medallion® utilizes different technologies:

  1. Image Analysis: Advanced algorithms analyze ID pictures, detecting visual anomalies, tampering, and manipulations by examining edges, textures, shadows, and properties for inconsistencies.
  2. Optical Character Recognition (OCR): OCR technology extracts textual information from images, comparing it to legitimate ID format and structure, identifying discrepancies and alterations.
  3. Machine Learning Algorithms: Medallion® employs machine learning algorithms on a dataset to identify alterations, manipulations, and forgery techniques, estimating the likelihood of tampering.
  4. Manual Review: Trained experts visually inspect photo ID documents for tampering, forgery, and authenticity, examining security features like holograms, watermarks, and microprinting.
  5. Cryptographic Verification: Medallion® validates the digital signatures embedded in modern ID documents, such as passports and driver's licenses, using verification algorithms, ensuring authenticity and integrity.

Advantages of Medallion® over Traditional API Methods

  1. Streamlined User Experience: Medallion® allows users to capture high-quality photos themselves in real-time, eliminating the need for file transfers and improving image quality. In traditional API methods, the image is automatically clicked by the user in uncertain conditions, which can lead to poor-quality photos causing verification issues.
  2. Real-Time Feedback: Medallion® provides continuous and immediate feedback during the document upload process, allowing users to rectify errors or issues promptly without starting the entire process from scratch. Traditional API methods provide feedback only at the end of the verification process, leading to multiple attempts and longer verification times. Medallion® offers personalized feedback for each user verification to ensure a successful identity verification process;
    1. Place ID close to the device
    2. Ensure sufficient light
    3. Hold the device steady
    4. Make sure all four corners of the ID are visible
    5. Make sure there are no glares or shadows on the ID 
  3. Automated ID Type Recognition: Medallion® automatically recognizes the type of ID being used, adapting the verification process accordingly. This reduces multiple manual inputs, streamlining the overall user experience. In traditional API methods, separate processes are required for uploading different ID types without automatic recognition
  4. Time Efficiency: Medallion® enables users to complete the authentication process in less time compared to traditional methods. By eliminating unnecessary steps and optimizing the user interface, Medallion® streamlines the overall user journey. On average, Medallion® takes less than 1 minute to complete a verification process, while traditional API methods often require more time and multiple attempts depending on the quality of the image provided.

By utilizing Medallion®, our goal is to streamline and simplify the identity verification process, ensuring a seamless and efficient experience for both clients and end users. Our authentication solution offers comprehensive capabilities to verify a wide range of photo IDs and passports from 200+ countries. With optional features such as facial recognition, liveness detection, knowledge quizzes, and background checks, we provide robust identity verification services. This multi-layered approach enhances security and helps prevent fraud, enabling businesses to establish trust and mitigate risks in their digital interactions.
