Singapore, 3 May 2018 – MatchMove, one of the world’s fastest growing and most disruptive fintech companies, today unveiled the latest feature in its proprietary Banking Wallet OSTM using facial biometric technology to instantly verify user identity. By seamlessly incorporating biometric verification, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and document authentication into the user sign-up process, MatchMove’s payments platform provides a less intrusive and highly responsive user onboarding experience. Clients who use MatchMove’s proprietary Banking Wallet OSTM to give their users co-branded (physical and/or virtual) payment cards can expect this cutting-edge technology to enhance user experience and strengthen security and compliance checks for their digital payments.

The latest facial biometric feature allows instant identity verification when onboarding new users.

They can start using the cards to shop and pay online or at stores, make P2P transfers, send remittances, as well as receive customized promotions, all on a single platform. The new technology provides a seamless end-user journey and a frictionless payments experience. It also helps businesses reduce onboarding costs while remaining fully compliant, increase customer conversions and prevent fraud.
