Acquire Digital Accounts While Mitigating Risk

Approve more qualified applicants online by adding SheerID verification to your workflow and instantly confirming a prospect’s occupation, employment, and status as a student or member of the military community.

Lower Digital CAC and Risk

To meet aggressive consumer demand and company goals, financial marketers are racing to acquire digital customers. But risk management teams are pumping the brakes because digital accounts pose a greater risk for fraud, which can lead to defaults.

SheerID Verification Platform addresses both challenges. You provide personalized offers to lower-risk consumer communities—like students, healthcare workers and the military—and then use SheerID to digitally verify applicants to ensure they’re eligible and qualified for the offer.

This approach is called identity marketing and it delivers immediate and ongoing gains. Your bank acquires more digital customers, and customers feel rewarded for belonging to the targeted community, which makes them loyal to your bank.
