Palo Alto, CA, London, UK., 30, June 2016 –  Jumio Corp., the leading digital ID verification company today announced innovative Swiss financial services company bob Finance has selected Jumio’s Netverify® to deliver accurate and secure credit checks.  bob Finance AG has leveraged Jumio’s award winning computer vision technology to power real-time and frictionless ID scanning services for customers who want to check their credit score with their new scoreme.ch service.

Switzerland is synonymous with financial services, and in this highly competitive landscape, financial services providers have to stand out from the crowd to succeed.

This means providing a first class user experience across all platforms, especially in the increasingly dominant mobile sector. bob Finance, well known in Switzerland for both its entrepreneurial flair and its commitment to technological innovation, knew that a seamless authentication experience had to be at the heart of its mobile credit checking service, and so, approached Jumio.

bob Finance is adopting Jumio’s Netfverify and utilizing its ability to verify IDs from over 200 countries, its open API, its intuitive interface and robust security, and ability to spot fakes.

Customers using ScoreMe.ch will now simply scan their ID for an instant credit assessment. The whole process is fast and secure, and fully compliant with know-your-customer and money laundering regulations.

Tim Ackermann, COO of bob Finance AG said: “We wanted a service that was simple to use and had robust security protocols. Jumio ticked all the boxes we were looking for. Of critical importance was the ability to verify IDs from so many different territories. With one quarter of the population of Switzerland being born outside of the country, we didn’t want to disenfranchise 25% of our potential market. Thanks to Jumio, anyone can now use our service.”

Robert Prigge, Chief Revenue Officer, Jumio said: “Our relationship with bob Finance demonstrates the enormous potential of Jumio to solve verification and authentication problems in almost any industry. From the sharing economy and travel to finance and online gaming, more and more companies are looking to Jumio to solve the problems associated with poor authentication and verification experiences. And this is a challenge that Jumio is more than ready for.”
