TBI Bank selects Onfido to speed customer onboarding

 TBI Bank, a phygital lender, focusing on Southeast European markets, is partnering with Onfido.

Using Onfido’s AI-powered ID verification service, TBI’s customers can sign up by taking a snap of their government-issued identity document (ID) and taking a selfie. Onfido first checks that the ID is genuine and then matches it to the user’s face. This verifies the person presenting the identity is its legitimate owner and is physically present.

“TBI Bank is more than just a bank, we’re a digital lender with a clear focus on services that make a difference for our customers. With more and more people embracing digitalization, now is the right time to switch all our onboarding channels to self-service,” said Petr Baron, CEO TBIF (TBI Bank). “Our partnership with Onfido enables that exactly – serving our clients through a one-stop banking platform starting with a self-service registration that requires zero interaction with service agents, without sacrificing on ease and speed of onboarding.”

“In today’s digital age, users increasingly expect a user-friendly experience where they can easily prove their real identity while knowing it is secure,” said Reuben Sagar, Regional Director at Onfido. “Romania and Bulgaria are seeing fast acceleration of the digitisation of financial service offerings, and we’re very happy to be partnering with TBI Bank, one of the most innovative banks in the Southeast Europe region. We pride ourselves on delivering access to online services that both detects and prevents fraudulent attempts while enabling the business to scale and meet regulatory requirements.”
