If there’s anything positive about the coronavirus pandemic and the global wave of lockdowns that followed in response to it, it’s the rapid acceleration of digitalization across all industries. Responding to the fintech companies in Turkey, Insha Ventures and Identify Turkey have created a digital ID verification solution called KimlikBasit.
The goal of KimlikBasit is to provide a simpler solution for identity verification and remote customer acquisition to modern fintech apps, whose digital-only nature clashes with face-to-face verification of customer credentials.
“KimlikBasit is a fintech venture operating in the field of call center-supported remote customer acquisition, providing artificial intelligence-supported biometric data comparison and verification, with solutions designed for businesses, especially financial institutions, to prevent money laundering and identity fraud (AML/KYC),” explains Yakup Sezer, general manager of Insha Ventures.
Users who encounter KimlikBasit in the wild are required to go through only a few simple steps to complete the verification process. First, user information for remote customer acquisition is taken. The user is then redirected to the actual verification process, which consists of document scanning using a mobile device and a brief call with a call center employee. After successful verification, all user information is stored in a secure manner and can be accessed via an administration panel.
“We are excited to be a critical part of this digital transformation while witnessing the transformation of the sectors in Turkey through regulations,” said Ali Haydar Ünsal, general manager of Identify Turkey. “In this period when the customer experience has undergone a significant change, we make it easier for companies in critical sectors such as e-commerce, banking, automotive and capital markets to acquire new customers within 10 minutes.”
Fintech apps that would like to implement KimlikBasit can look forward to 24/7 customer support provided by expert teams in multiple languages and a wealth of training material to help with the implementation of this innovative digital ID verification solution.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event Will Take Place On August 11
In addition to 2 new foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
After several leaks, Samsung has officially confirmed the date and time when its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event will take place: August 11, 2021 at 10 AM EST.
Besides the confirmation, Samsung has rewarded its fans for their patience by releasing an official trailer that hints at the products that will soon be revealed in their full glory.
“Change is the only constant in the world of innovation. By driving new ideas forward and transforming existing experiences, it redefines the boundaries of what’s possible,” the official press release says. “As the excitement for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked on August 11 continues to build, Samsung Electronics has released a trailer teasing the surprises that lie in wait for Galaxy fans.”
The products teased by the trailer are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (check out the complete leaked Galaxy device lineup). Both are foldable smartphones, but each targets different customers.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 folds along the vertical axis, and it’s expected to boast a huge 7.7-inch interior display and a smaller exterior display, giving users plenty of screen real estate for basic apps and multimedia alike. It could be Samsung’s first smartphone with an under-display camera, and it will certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 folds along the horizontal axis, allowing it to comfortably hide even inside the tiny pockets so many women’s pants come with. Just like its larger relative, it will come with flagship specifications, so playing the latest games or taking beautiful pictures at night shouldn’t be a problem.
In addition to the two foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
How To Watch The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be accessible only to online viewers, and you’ll be able to tune it either directly from Samsung.com or on YouTube.
