The Onboarding Challenge

Like Patricia, onboarding customers for digital financial products comes with the challenge of fast and reliable verification. Asides from the cost associated with the traditional approach, verification can also take too long on some digital platforms.

Despite spending a lot on this process and sacrificing user experience somehow, the verification success rate was still below par for Patricia. The underperformance was costing the business money and customers. Here's how Tamaraebi describes the challenge:

Onboarding is like the haggling process in a physical market. The person is yet to be a user, and at this point of zero commitment, they can be dissuaded by any slight challenge faced. So it is essential to leave the process seamless and straightforward.

The Okra Solution

The Patricia team decided to use Okra's Identity APIs to create a seamless verification process.
