“Partnering with Trulioo allows us to continue meeting our regulatory requirements while providing tailored, best-in-class customer onboarding experiences with the least friction and the highest chance of verification”

After a thorough market assessment, EQ Bank selected Trulioo Identity Document Verification to capture and verify an ID document and selfie when customers open accounts online – a critical exercise for a seamless digital banking experience. With advanced AI checks, face comparison and liveness detection, EQ Bank benefits from cutting-edge fraud defenses in an evolving threat landscape.

EQ Bank leveraged Trulioo Workflow Studio – a no-code, drag-and-drop workflow builder – for fast, flexible Identity Document Verification integration. Workflow Studio allows the bank to easily add verification steps and configure onboarding processes based on results at each stage.

Workflow Studio also allowed EQ Bank to quickly configure a customized list of document types it would accept for verification to comply with Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) regulations. Trulioo SDKs then adapted to those predetermined rules and gave EQ Bank customers options based on where their documents were issued.
