Identity Checks in the Public Sector

Quick and easy identity checks to prevent fraud in the public sector

Local authorities are subject to greater and ever more sophisticated attempts at fraud. False identity documents are used to fraudulently attempt to access social housing, welfare payments, jobs and other  public sector funded benefits. Fraudulent claims not only damage the reputation of organisations and undermine trust in public services but are also estimated to cost local government over £2 billion annually.

Our systems help public sector bodies to scan and validate passports, ID cards, visas and Biometric Residence Permits in just a few seconds to help detect fraud before it happens.

We work with over 30 Local Government bodies and housing associations

Key benefits of electronic identity validation in the Public Sector:

Save time and drive efficiencies

By using our identity scanning software, public sector organisations can complete ID and visa checks more quickly, creating greater HR efficiencies and reducing the administrative burden and training need for HR, recruitment and benefits staff.

Protect funds

Using ID checks ensure that services are made available and benefits are paid only to those people who are eligible. 
Oxford City Council reports a £36,000 saving thanks to fraudulent housing applications that were stopped by identity document scans highlighting fake documents.

Reduce the risk of human error

A manual process is subject to human error and potential bias. Electronic checks streamline the verification process and introduce consistency, no matter who makes the check.
