Identity Documents (ID)

Verified by ABBYY

The Vantage identity document (ID) Skill is a pre-trained AI model to extract information from passports, US driver licenses, residence cards, US Social Security card, and other ID cards from various countries. The ID Skill currently recognizes 10,000 different ID cards from 248 different regions. The model will extract information such as the person's name, date of birth, gender, address, and other fields. The skill also reads MRZ data and the barcode on the back of IDs.

Images of an ID can be captured using a scanning or mobile device, and immediately uploaded into Vantage for processing. Built rules and validations are part of the skill including cross-checking the data on the front of an ID with data read from a barcode on the back of an ID.

The ID Skill can also be customized to disable/remove fields that are not required for extraction, and can also be part of a Vantage process where human in the loop review can occur to verify the ID.

Combined with other Vantage skills suich as Personal Earnings Statement, Bank Account Statement, Utility Bill, IRS Form 1040, IRS Form W-2 can be used within proof of identity / proof of residence / proof of income and KYC processes while delivering a delightful customer onboarding experience right from the mobile device.
