Provide users with a fast, efficient capture and upload experience. Smart Capture is an easy-to-integrate SDK that makes deploying exceptional identity verification simple.
Why use Smart Capture SDK?
Effortless for you and your customers
Smart Capture offers an easy verification experience for your customers. For you, detailed documentation and out-of-the-box functionality make getting started simple. Smart Capture communicates directly with our back-end services to execute identity verification workflows and transmit on-device signals for fraud assessment.
Proactive real-time blur and glare feedback ensures that image capture errors are eliminated instantly, resulting in faster turnaround times and improved conversion rates.
Multi-frame image capture
Get more users verified the first time. Image enhancement technology captures a short video and automatically selects the best available image of a user and their document, reducing image rejection due to blur, glare, and camera positioning by up to 70%.
Enable users to move seamlessly from a desktop or laptop without a camera to a mobile device for a more intuitive capture experience. No app installation is required; users simply scan a QR code. We guide them back to their web journey when capture is complete.
Fraud detection signals
Device integrity, network intelligence, and geolocation signals detect and mitigate non-visual document and biometric fraud. NFC scanning provides an additional layer of protection when analyzing supported identity documents.
Ready to use
Reduce application development costs and accelerate time to market leveraging detailed developer resources and ready-to-use functionality. Smart Capture is continuously tested and optimized to ensure compatibility with a wide range of iOS and Android devices. Built-in metrics track and measure performance to improve your verification workflows.
Accessible for all customers
Our Smart Capture SDKs are built to WCAG 2.1 AA standards to allow for screen-readers, font resizing, and real time interaction and haptic feedback — ensuring sign-up for your business is accessible to everybody.
If you have additional compliance needs or use multiple vendors, our custom callbacks offer the flexibility of an API-only integration — allowing you to decide how you route customer data to meet your requirements.
