Unlocking the Power of eKYC Solutions in Car Rental Industry

Have you ever used an online scooter or car rental service? In recent years, the concept of sharing economy has totally transformed the rental industry, which enables people to enjoy driving cars or scooters without time and space limit. According to a study by Frost & Sullivan, by 2025 the number of people using this type of service will reach 36 million, maintaining an annual growth rate of 16.4%.

Due to the high volume of daily usage of rental services, and in consideration of traffic safety concerns, identity verification and management of users have emerged as critical issues for the service providers. This article will tell you the reason why the rental industry need AI eKYC solution, and how it helps the enterprise optimize the ID verification process and stand out from the scooter and car rental industry.

The Hidden Risks in Scooter and Car Rental Industry

The present identity verification process utilized by rental companies usually requires the submission of a photo of the driving license and a user’s selfie, which subsequently undergoes manual scrutiny for a period of 2–3 days. This manual review process is time-consuming and labor-intensive for businesses. Moreover, a lengthy review period often leads to an unfavorable user experience, which can result in customer attrition.

Furthermore, inadequate identity security may have severe consequences. Rental platforms currently rely on a system that compares user ID documents and driving license with the uploaded selfie photo rather than a real-time facial recognition system, which is unable to authenticate that the user and the ID holder are identical. Thus, if a teenager uses a counterfeit or parental driving license to register a rental account with their parent’s selfie photo. This would lead to the possibility of underage driving and can pose a serious threat to traffic safety.
