Low-cost property and regulatory technology provider The Search People has launched a revolutionary Verification of Identity (VOI) solution, that features the latest biometric facial recognition technology, with integrated government document verification services. The launch of VirtualVOI means legal and financial representatives can instantly complete the necessary identity checks on property buyers and sellers during the transaction of Australian real estate.

VirtualVOI removes the need for legal and financial representatives to physically conduct face-to-face verification of identity checks. Combining the latest facial recognition technology and document verification services (DVS), VirtualVOI helps practitioners meet their legal responsibilities whilst supporting new social distancing measures.  Property buyers and sellers can now securely undertake their own guided verification of identity check in just minutes using their own phone or tablet.

CEO of The Search People Rafe Berding said the addition of VirtualVOI represented the most secure and efficient anti-fraud tool for lawyers, conveyancers, financiers and their customers.

The VirtualVOI solution is now available via our digital property information ordering platform and combines the world’s best facial recognition biometric technology with instant DVS checks,” Mr Berding said.

“This anti-fraud technology is designed to meet the needs of lawyers and conveyancers and is easy-to-use for property buyers and sellers, enabling their legal and financial representative to quickly verify their identity. Our property information and regulatory technology solutions are designed to drive efficiency, security, user experience and profitability for our clients – VirtualVOI is a real example of innovation that ticks all the boxes.”

VirtualVOI supports the most recent position statement for Verification of Identity by the peak regulator the Australian Registrars National Electronic Conveyancing Council (ARNECC).
