What is Identify?

Oration’s Identify feature performs the identification and verification of callers, saving valuable AHT in contact centres. Along with using one or more typical verification questions, the system includes optional voice biometrics for added security and improved caller experience. This allows Identify to validate a caller based on them saying something as simple as their identity number or phone number, thus removing the need to ask them several questions. One-way encryption of identity data also ensures Convai never stores at rest any private information.

How does Identify work?

When a caller phones a contact centre, Identify looks them up against their mobile number or identity number to see if they exist. If the CLI (Calling Line Identifier) is registered as having an active biometrics enrolment, Identify will ask the caller to speak an identity token such as their mobile phone number - this is a highly effective and easy-to-recall biometric token and a match means no further questions are required. If they are not enrolled in biometrics, the system requests a series of Knowledge Tokens such as name, date of birth and address to verify the caller, with the number of matches required being fully configurable.

When a non-enrolled caller passes Knowledge Tokens, Identify automatically asks if they would like to enrol in biometrics and the process is as simple as them saying their mobile number three times. When the call arrives at the contact centre, the Identify screen shows a pending enrolment and the agent clicks to activate it, adding another layer of security to ensure the correct person is enrolled. Additional tokens such as date of birth can also be enrolled as needed.

What makes Oration different

The Oration database includes an import feature that allows a client Identity database to be securely ingested. The Identity data is one-way encrypted within the browser section and encrypted data sent to Oration to be stored in the database. Oration Identify also includes an optional Lambda integration that enables a connection to a client host API, with Oration sending a core ID number (eg: phone number) to the API and the Lambda then interacting with the client back-end API/s to source verification data (eg: date of birth). This is all done within the Lambda and the built-in Oration database provides a fast and efficient way to get started and deployed, with zero integration for smaller clients.
