This release includes several major updates across our service. This is scheduled for release on Friday 12 May.
Identity document handling improvements
We have overhauled our document handling process, introducing new machine learning capabilities to automatically assess document type and quality. This enables us to route it to the most efficient service and maximise processing success rates. This change does not impact the functionality of our API or GUI.
Persons of Significant control data
We have added persons of significant control data to our service for UK companies. We will check contacts against PSC data from Companies House for Company and contacts checks.
2017 Electoral Roll data
This data is now available through our service and will be used to validate addresses for UK residents.
International company quick search
We have updated our company quick search feature in our GUI to enable you to perform quick searches for companies in 25 countries. This ensures that you use the correct name and registration number for the company to improve your match rates before carrying out a company check. This feature is only available in our GUI. If you do not have access to international company data and would like to use this service please contact our support team for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
