backbase-officeDigital banking software vendor Backbase has teamed up with Mitek, a mobile capture and identity verification specialist. Mitek’s OCR and document validation capabilities are now available through the Backbase Open Banking Marketplace.

With this partnership, users of Backbase’s flagship omnichannel platform can “easily” add Mitek’s tools to their digital banking experience, says Backbase. The two companies have already been working together for some time, and say the latest announcement is taking their tie-up “a step further”.

There is also an early taker of the joint offering – Malaysia-based AmBank – that has been “among the first to deploy digital onboarding solutions from the two companies”.

Earlier this year, Backbase inked a similar deal with Entersekt, to use its authentication capabilities on the Backbase Open Banking Marketplace.
