Digital trust is a belief that we are interacting online with genuine people, and not bots, or someone pretending to be who they are not. It also stems out of a certain confidence we have that the service providers we rely on are reliable, safe from threats, and conscious of our digital privacy. When we use digital products and services, we are confirming that we trust them, the other users, and the whole ecosystem that surrounds them.

Digital identity is, therefore, a foundational element to our digital economy; hence businesses perform KYC and other checks to verify the identity of the users and strengthen trust in their platform. This is very essential, particularly for industries with high risk like financial services, retail, BNPL, and e-commerce.

The Problem at Hand

An essential part of the customer onboarding and verification process involves looking up customer data via secure and reliable database sources to verify the validity and authenticity of the information submitted.

Previously, this was a tedious manual process that required one to physically go through tons of paper documents to track and match a customer’s data. This was a high-friction and laborious process that was unsustainable and hard to scale.

Imagine there was a digital and no-code solution that eliminated the friction and removed all barriers between you and your customers’ data, enabling you easily access and verify multiple identities in real time. What if this was also a no-code solution that enabled you to navigate your customer identity verification processes without writing a single line of code? The good news is that you don’t have to imagine because we’ve built just that!

Introducing EasyLookup

EasyLookup is an effortless method of performing quick lookups to verify the authenticity and accuracy of your customer’s information. It comes with multiple verification options for different country’s identity databases.

The lookup process involves the following steps:

  1. Selecting the country: the country you select will determine the government database EasyLookup uses to perform lookup operations.
  2. Selecting the ID type: the ID type available will depend on the country you select; the supported countries are Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, and Ghana.
  3. Providing the customer’s ID and performing the lookup: at this point, you pass in your customer’s ID and perform the lookup operation.

Upon successful verification, EasyLookup gives you the complete details of the customer that is attached to the selected identity database. You can also download the details in a PDF and save them on your device.

EasyLookup Verification Options

EasyLookup enables you to identify customers across multiple ID databases in real time, and the verification options change based on the country you choose. Here are the available verification options for the countries we support.
