Get to know Verify

Verify is an automated onboarding solution that lets you bring a full range of Know Your Customer/Business (KYC/KYB), anti-money laundering, and anti-fraud checks into your product via a single API.

Verify can help you:

  • satisfy your regulatory requirements and those set out by Griffin (or by another banking partner).
  • manage risk more efficiently by reducing and streamlining your manual review queue.
  • improve your customers’ experience with a quick, simple, unified onboarding process.

Verify uses pre-integrated data sources to run verification and screening checks on potential customers. You can choose one of two approaches for using Verify:

  • Preset workflows (recommended). Our pre-configured, pre-approved onboarding workflows are designed specifically to be used with our future banking products.
  • Custom workflows. Create your own workflows designed to meet the needs of another banking partner.

Whichever method you choose, Verify provides a detailed breakdown of all check results in plain language, so manual reviews are clear and straightforward and your team can quickly make an informed decision.
