Here’s what people say about us

  • After our research, we found uqudo to be by far the best AML provider and we are confident that they will help us push our business forward as we grow.

  • Digital ID, data governance and cross borders e-payments are critical to advance the digital transformation we want for Africa. Therefore, welcoming uqudo to the alliance is clearly aligned with our ambitions. Their expertise and experience will be a great asset to our organisation.

  • Authentication and authorization are mission-critical components. Staex provides a dynamic lightweight network layer for new digital collaborators such as public-private engagements while uqudo offers proven digital identity technology. The combined solution safeguards our lives and actions in the digital world.

  • From a strategic point of view for TECH5, uqudo is a great partner for the integration of both companies’ offerings to create unparalleled digital KYC and National Identity programs in the Middle East, Africa, and other regions. In addition, we appreciate access to uqudo’s expertise as a full-service provider in the space of digital onboarding and authentication.

  • I’ve seen the uqudo platform working first hand and it’s extraordinarily compelling, especially if you are looking for an incredibly seamless onboarding/ID verification process.

  • What made us choose Uqudo as our digital identity partner is their clear and fast integration process and the constant availability and efficiency of their support team. The client ID verification and video selfie is user-friendly and convenient making our onboarding process quasi-instant.

  • It is an honor and great fun, working with a company like uqudo! I‘m fascinated not just by their great talent and tech & market expertise … but especially by their passion. For their products, their customers and the restless willingness to go beyond. All this resulted already in impressive successes – looking forward to working with the team, to truly ‘own’ the region and grow beyond.

We price based on successful onboarding.

Say goodbye to request-based fees, repeat charges, and spiralling customer acquisition costs.


What is KYC?

Know Your Customer (KYC) is an identity verification process that authenticates the real identity of customers during onboarding.

What is Enhanced Due Diligence?

Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) goes beyond Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and looks to establish a higher level of identity assurance with additional verification steps such as verifying the customer’s address.

How do you perform KYC?

Three key steps are involved in our identity process; first, we read the document and extract identity data; next, we check the person on camera is real and matches the document; finally, we verify document authenticity via government databases or using the digital signatures on the document.

What are the requirements for KYC?

KYC document requirements vary according to a region’s jurisdiction but generally include

  • A government-issued ID card
  • Passport
  • Driving License
  • Voter’s ID
  • Birth certificates

Why is KYC required?

KYC helps financial institutions verify the identity of customers and prevents companies from being used in illegal financial activities. KYC also helps firms understand their customer’s financial behaviour, aiding in a better user experience.

What is eKYC?

eKYC or Digital KYC refers to a remote, paperless KYC process, that can be completed digitally. The steps involved in eKYC are:

  • AI document scanning
  • Biometric face recognition
  • Digital document verification

How long does KYC verification take?

uqudo’s identity verification can be completed in less than 10 seconds.
