With the accuracy of 96% and processing speed less than 1 second, VinOCR is being applied in solving problems related to remote customer identification. It is especially helpful during the Covid-19 pandemic as reducing social exposure, also maintaining and improving business efficiency and user experience.
Customer identification is the process by which businesses, especially financial institutions, collect and verify information about customers’ identities and addresses. With traditional methods, service users must go directly to the headquarters so that employees can visually observe, authenticate identity cards/citizenship, compare facial recognition features with data on records and papers.
Because of the cumbersome procedure in the authentication process, the service user’s experience is significantly reduced, even in some cases customers abandon the brand. For businesses, traditional customer identification also causes financial and human resources burdens, affecting production and business efficiency. In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the limitations of this approach are more evident than ever.
VinOCR quickly and accurately authenticates various types of documents
Recognizing the difficulties of enterprises in customer identification, Vingroup Big Data Institute (VinBigdata) has invested in researching VinOCR, belonging to the VinBase Vision product line. It applies computer vision technology to support written information detection, ientification and extraction from images.

With the superior technological capabilities mentioned above, VinOCR is capable of processing both formatted and non-formatted documents, tables and graphs, also handwriting. Taking less than 1 second, the software can read, identify and verify identity cards, passports, driver license, vehicle registration, household registration book and birth certificate. The accuracy of this task is up to 96%.
