Reduce the burden of customer onboarding.

As an easy-to-integrate alternative to manual document verification for Proof of Address, GlobalGateway UtilityID substantially reduces the time it takes to onboard customers — from hours or days to just minutes.

Given that regular IDs can easily become outdated, UtilityID helps eliminate friction throughout the onboarding experience by being able to use utility bills for the most accurate and up-to-date record of address. By authenticating users via direct connection to their utility provider, UtilityID removes the need for ID document verification and manual document review. Backed by the ability to download a PDF copy of the utility bill used for verification, UtilityID makes it possible to be prepared in the event of a customer audit while being able to establish trust through transparent information.

Connecting directly to over 2,200 utility providers worldwide, this new method of verification significantly reduces friction, fraud, drop-off and cost in the onboarding process — all while ensuring a higher level of address accuracy and compliance.
