Developed in conjunction with 3M, we have taken the technology used by the UK borders agency to verify documents at airports and borders throughout the world and have developed a solution for employers to validate the identity and therefore the right to work of potential employees globally.
With fines from the UK borders agency starting at £10,000 per illegal employee and the hugedamage from negative publicity, companies are looking to protect themselves and demonstrate to the UKBA that they are taking the issue of ‘right to work’ very seriously.
UK companies attract a large number of EU and overseas workers, most of who are working on genuine UK work visas, however there are increasingly a large number of fake passports and visas incirculation. With fake documents readily available through the internet and the increase in the quality it is only possible to Identify them with high tech scanning equipment and software.
The Intelligent Document Checker scans the document and carries out checks on the UV images,infra-red, photos, MRZ (machine readable zones), paper type, ink used, font used and many other checks to then compare this against alibrary of thousands of documents to identify and validate its authenticity.
The user is then taken through a menu of instructions to capture additional information which prevents valid documents being provided by a different person and prevents fraudulent use of the solution by supervisors / recruiters who may be involved in the of hiring illegal labour.
The data is then uploaded to a hosted database which can be linked to any HR, ERP or payroll system and the results of the checks shown online. Intelligent Document Checker can also be integrated with Intelligent Screening as part of the process of screening potential applicants.
