GB Group Expands its Electronic Identity Verification Suite to Incorporate Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands


GB Group, the Identity Management specialist, today launches additional country coverage to provide full age, identity and anti-money laundering verification to businesses wishing to trade with citizens in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Enabled by GB Group’s award winning global ID3 technology, part of its global suite of Identity Management tools, GB Group can now provide in-depth identity verification on German, Austrian, Swiss and Dutch citizens.

GB Group remains focussed on expanding its global verification capability and the addition of these four geographies to its Identity Management product suite means GB Group now has the facility to provide in-depth identity verification in 14 countries that represent 44% of global GDP.

Richard Law, CEO of GB Group comments, “With a growing number of online organisations seeking to trade cross-border with consumers, our ability to provide in depth identity verification in an increasing number of geographies provides GB Group with a significant competitive advantage. With this additional coverage and the flexibility of our technology we are well placed to respond to changes in regulation, such as the forthcoming 4th EU Money Laundering Directive and the European Commission’s review of the Online Gaming market in Continental Europe. This will provide our clients with the ability to onboard their customers in a safe and compliant environment via one single solution. The latest country coverage added to our solution moves us closer to our vision to provide in-depth verification of ‘Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime’.”

Editors’ Notes

Who are GB Group

The most successful organisations recognise the value of understanding your individual identity - who you are, what you need and what you like. GB combines this concept of identity with technology to create an environment of trust so that organisations can connect, communicate and transact with consumers safely, responsibly and profitably. We call this identity management.

GB Group has four complementary identity management offerings:

ID Verification, which provides the ability to verify consumers' identities remotely, without the physical presentation of documentation, in order to combat ID fraud, money laundering and restrict access to under age content, purchases and gambling 
ID Customer Registration, which includes software and services for quick and accurate customer registration and validation of records 
ID Marketing Services, which provides database services so our clients can better understand, target and retain their customers and offers accurate and up-to-date identity information for their contact strategies 
ID Tracing Services, which provides the largest and most accurate picture of the UK's population and properties in order to locate and contact the right individual, first time 
This enables our clients to make informed business decisions based on a thorough knowledge of consumer identity and behaviour, leading to more effective communication and interaction with the customer.
