Winner of Swiss Economic Award continues growth in Swiss Telco Market with Quickline partnership

Swiss start-up PXL Vision, winner of the Swiss Economic Forum Award 2019, continues to grow its position within the Swiss Telco market with the addition of its most recent client Quickline. Quickline, one of Switzerland’s largest mobile operators and fourth largest full-service telecom provider, has launched a mobile solution for customer onboarding using PXL Vision’s Daego® platform for identity verification. Looking to eliminate the cumbersome and expensive process of manually verifying a customer’s identity, the new solution enables a completely digital workflow for customer onboarding, without requiring the customer to be physically present.

Quickline partnered with PXL Vision to build a mobile app to deliver more efficient and secure digital identity workflows and an improved onboarding experience. “The app allows our customers to easily scan their ID and record a video selfie using a mobile device”, says Marc Loosli, Director Innovation of Quickline Holding. PXL Vision’s biometric facial recognition engine then ensures the document actually belongs to the user by comparing the face from the video selfie to the photo on the document. “This removes the need for any physical identification, allowing users to close a Quickline subscription anytime and from anywhere”, Marc Loosli explains.

Since its deployment with other leading Swiss companies in 2017, PXL Vision has worked hard on further developing its Daego® (digital alter ego) platform for secure and efficient identity verification. These efforts are clearly paying off after winning the high-tech category at the 2019 SEF Awards. “We are extremely proud of the recognition by the SEF, and are excited that Quickline has chosen our technology to help improve sales conversions, reduce fraud, and drive down the cost of customer onboarding” says Karim Nemr, Founder and CBO of PXL Vision. PXL Vision’s Daego® platform is a highly scalable software solution that allows businesses across industries to turn inefficient manual processes into effective, user-friendly, reliable digital identity workflows.

SwissID selects PXL Vision’s Daego technology for its identification process

The SwissSign Group, issuer of SwissID, has selected PXL Vision’s Daego® (Digital Alter Ego) solution for their digital identity verification service which is to be launched during the second quarter of 2019.

To perform the digital identity verification for SwissID, the SwissSign Group will deploy the Daego® technology of PXL Vision. Daego® is a high-tech digital identity verification solution which will enable SwissID users to have their identity verified in a quick, simple and secure manner. With this verified identity, users will have access to various online services which require an identity check. The digital identification solution will be made available to SwissID users during the second quarter of 2019.

Identity verification in real time

The technology from PXL Vision is based on an entirely electronic end-to-end process. In future, SwissID users will scan their valid identity document and make a short video selfie using their mobile phone. In real time, Daego® will then check the authenticity of the document and match it to the user via the video recording. Once the check is successfully completed, confirmation of the verified identity is provided to the user. The Daego® solution supports identity documents from more than 180 countries, meaning that the vast majority of Swiss residents will be able to create a verified identity.

“We are delighted that with our technology we are enabling Swiss companies to operate more agilely and efficiently in an increasingly digital business environment”, says Michael Born, CEO of PXL Vision. “We are also continuously developing our products in order to ensure that we can offer the highest level of security and help eliminate cumbersome physical processes”, adds Karim Nemr, CBO and founder of PXL Vision.

Markus Naef, CEO of the SwissSign Group: “Our customers and partners expect the highest security standards and this is also true with regard to the identity verification with SwissID. It was therefore logical that we would implement the process for a trustworthy digital identity with a technology partner such as PXL Vision. Its product Daego®  meets our very high requirements that we place on a verified identity”.
