Yoti Has Two Major Partnerships, Other New Developments in the Pipeline

“The partnerships point to a substantially higher profile for Yoti, whose authentication technology revolves around selfie-based facial recognition and document reading through a standard smartphone camera.”

Yoti Has Two Major Partnerships, Other New Developments in the PipelineA year after its official launch, Yoti is offering a preview of what’s next, promising a major new partnership and enhancements to its mobile app.

In a blog post, the company’s CEO, Robin Tombs, asserts that Yoti Age Scan, its age estimation system, “will soon grace the self checkouts at one of the world’s largest retailers.” He also says that the company’s recently announced biometric passenger processing program at Heathrow Airport will proceed from an internal trial to a terminal trial for international departures, in collaboration with “a global airline”.

The partnerships point to a substantially higher profile for Yoti, whose authentication technology revolves around selfie-based facial recognition and document reading through a standard smartphone camera.

But in addition to these big new partnerships, Tombs’ blog post says that other important developments are also in the pipeline, including a streamlined registration process on the app that will be launched in the first half of next year, an expansion of Yoti’s office in Bangalore, and the planned launch of an offline version of the Yoti Key identity tool – the result of Yoti’s research in developing markets from earlier this year.
