The Amiqus ID Process
The average time taken to complete a full check is four minutes. Prospective clients are able to start and return to complete the process later if they are interrupted or don’t have all the information required when asked. Progress is saved automatically.
A unique link with timed expiry is sent to a prospective client by email.
The client then enters a secure portal to provide their contact details and some general information, such as address and telephone number.
The client may also be asked to take a verifying picture of their documents via their device camera or to upload documents such as utility bills or bank statements.
The requesting professional or company can then access the results within a few minutes in their Amiqus ID account.
