Secure car rental and car sharing with 24/7 self-service convenience
Nowadays, car rental companies are expanding their service to include car sharing business. The sharing economy is a booming industry, making more efficient use of possessions through sharing with others. For legal and insurance purposes, the companies offering car rentals or car sharing must ensure that whoever is picking up the car is indeed the driver with the registered driver’s license. Even if the registered person has uploaded a legal document like an ID or driver’s license, a verification of ownership is needed for clarifying who is actually renting the car.
Biometric authentication and identity proofing provides a unique solution for the respective companies and solves user experience issues that so far have not been overcome. By simply submitting a photo of the driver’s license and taking a selfie, user presence and document ownership can be determined in real-time.
Unlike codes or passwords, biometric data cannot be shared with another person, thus making sure that the person registered and insured is actually the one who will be driving the car.
