RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., Oct. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Melissa, a leading provider of global contact data quality and identity verification solutions, today announced its affordable Electronic ID Verification (eIDV) platform empowers banks of all sizes to reduce risk and modernize Know Your Customer (KYC) operations, an important shift in identity resolution and verification. Melissa’s comprehensive tools are easily and quickly integrated, enabling fintech and banking institutions to eliminate billions of dollars in losses, streamline and accelerate compliance, and exceed customer expectations for speedy transactions and simplified onboarding. Melissa’s eIDV platform is fully compliant to all major banking regulations, and performs identity resolution with capabilities such as national ID, age, and full contact data verification, data enrichment, and watchlist screening. 

The platform’s newest features include fast and uniquely effective onboarding, based on dynamic Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and proprietary biometric facial recognition.
