What is Scantek?

Identity verification confirms that a person is who they say they are.

Scantek harnesses advanced technology to offer fast, safe identity verification online. Using native and web-based applications, Scantek analyses and authenticates a person’s identity in seconds.

Leveraging artificial intelligence, we’ve eliminated human error in the authentication process. Users experience touchless verification as their identity documents are matched with facial biometrics and official verification sources. Businesses receive accurate results to support decisions around customer onboarding. At every step data is securely encrypted, keeping your information secure.

Scantek technology is widely regarded as Australia’s safest, most reliable form of identity verification.

How the app is used

We’ve kept it simple. 

  • Your customer receives a link to a secure portal. 
  • Using the Scantek app and the camera on their mobile phone or device, they capture their required identity documents. 
  • The app guides them through facial screen captures. 

Our system takes care of the rest: the deep dive into secure and accurate authentication.

Easy scan captures

Easy scan captures

Regardless of your customer’s geographic location, they can be fully verified using the camera on their device. The app guides customers through screen captures of the primary and secondary identity documents they need. Smart software ensures the images are captured quickly and clearly, counteracting glare and blur.

Extracting Text

Our app uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to find print or written text in document images and converts it into data for digital processing. It’s all done automatically, preventing user error from manual input.

Biometric Liveness checks

To ensure the genuine person is present—or ‘live’—the app guides the user through a random sequence of head movements for a few seconds. This biometric liveness check prevents an imposter using a photograph or video of someone else as proof of identity. With over 6,000 unique movement sequences, fraudulent tricks like holding a recorded video of another person in front of the camera, would never pass the test.

Biometric facial verification

Our AI compares the face on the identity document to the face in the screen captures. It’s a highly technical measurement using millions of machine-learned micro-comparisons for accuracy. You receive a confidence score on the match, enabling you to make business decisions with certainty. Stolen documents are exposed at this point, putting a stop to identity theft.

Detailed authentication

We go a step further to access industry-specific identity checks. Among others, our app complies with Acceptable Means of Compliance and AUSTRAC’s requirements for:

Unlike some verification services that take days to manually perform these authentications, Scantek can complete the entire process from scan to results within seconds.

Why the app is used


It cuts the cost of preventing fraud​

The cost of verifying customers can escalate quickly, especially if your organisation checks large numbers of people daily. The cost of inadequate verification is worse, as it exposes you to the risk of identity fraud, which eats into your profits. Scantek provides a simple, fully digital solution that eludes the costs of paperwork and personnel, while providing more accurate results. No need to lose money on expensive overheads or time-consuming processes—one app does it all.


It saves time in customer onboarding

There’s nothing worse than a customer moving to a competitor because your complex verification steps frustrated them. Physically producing the right documents, visiting an office, and giving private information to a stranger are obstacles both you and your customer would love to avoid. 

With our fully digital system customers can scan identity documents or complete their verification from the comfort of home, saving you both time and inconvenience. 

We’ve also taken out the ‘wait’ factor. By eliminating the need for manual processing, documents don’t rely on a person’s availability for authentication. Automated AI technology is instantly at work: verification is complete within seconds, rather than hours or days.


It protects your customers

To ensure that your organisation is never associated with fraudulent activity or data leaks, we’ve made it our business to engineer a highly sensitive app that identifies even the hidden risks. Data-driven insights detect suspicious behaviour. These alerts will support your decision-making regarding which customers to onboard.

Besides simplifying the verification process, Scantek safeguards the information your customers entrust to you. No human sees or manipulates their data. All personal information remains secure during the verification process and encrypted at rest in storage. 

A digital audit trail of steps you’ve taken to verify a customer remains easily accessible should you ever need to produce evidence.

How our ecosystem works

Identity verification is more than a sequence of steps. Over the years, we’ve advanced with technology trends to build a dynamic verification ecosystem which is continually advancing. This supports your streamlined experience as you use the app

Here’s what you get from the work we do behind the scenes.

Intelligent authentication

Our app automatically screens and classifies documents, extracting relevant information. Bypassing the need for human training or input, it independently tests identity documentation against our data sources, and certifies authenticity. Results are presented in a format that is easy to read and interpret.

Powerful analytics

With the app’s capacity to process thousands of documents daily, you’ll quickly receive information you need to make informed decisions about onboarding legitimate customers. Hundreds of unseen artificial intelligence checks expose fraudsters by detecting false documents and hidden risks. Track customer trends, adjust marketing strategies or reward customer loyalty using insights from built-in data analytics.
