Orchestration service provider Mvine Ltd and global digital identity verification provider Onfido have agreed to partner to make a range of digital identity verification services available in a new way, prioritising accessibility and simplicity for all. The move reinforces the go-to-market strategy of both Onfido and Mvine to scale up their respective commercial activities in the B2B market in the UK and beyond. The partnership coincides with the launch to the UK B2B market of ‘MvineID’, a new service delivering fast and affordable identity verification checks to UK businesses.
This new partnership means Mvine will integrate its digital identity hub with the Onfido Real Identity Platform and Onfido’s Verification Suite. Onfido is a certified Identity Service Provider (IDSP) under the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework. The result will be a solution engineered to deliver digital identity verification (IDV) checks with accessibility in mind.
When Mvine’s business customers require Right to Work, Right to Rent and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks they can opt to select Onfido as their identity services provider (IDSP). Digital identity verification checks performed using fully remote technologies by Onfido will then be passed through Mvine’s identity hub which delivers a non-repudiable and tamper-proof certificate of verification. Professionals such as Human Resources Managers, Volunteer Managers, Estate Agents, Landlords and Sports Clubs will be able to buy the type of IDV checks they require in the quantities they require without the need to first integrate their own systems to the IDSP. This service design disrupts approaches currently used, for example, when new permanent, contract or volunteer staff are brought into workplaces, or when people are onboarded as new residential tenants by landlords or their managing agents.
Frank Joshi, Director at Mvine Limited, said, “This is the right time for a partnership between Mvine and Onfido. Its focus on making digital identity simple for everyone is something we can immediately agree with. In fact our brands have admired one another from a distance for too long. We have been looking for the opportunity and now, with MvineID, that opportunity is right here.”
Nello Franco, Chief Customer Officer at Onfido, said, “We’re thrilled to partner with Mvine to help automate and streamline verification checks of UK businesses. Onfido’s AI-powered digital identity solution includes our award-winning document and biometric verification solutions, trusted data sources, and fraud detection signals to help businesses know their customers online. Automation enables businesses to acquire new customers and detect fraud while meeting global KYC and AML compliance.”
