OneWelcome: Making access to online services simple and secure.
The pandemic accelerated the digital strategy for companies around the world. From need, it became a necessity to survive and retain competitive advantage to not only have a digital presence but also a digital storefront. Including insurers – though it is not always easy.
Most insurance companies struggle to convert prospects to customers in a frictionless online journey. It’s hard to strike a balance between collecting enough data about the client without scaring them versus complying to ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) requirements.
OneWelcome believes it doesn’t have to be like this. With its platform and services, insurance companies can offer a frictionless journey, in line with GDPR and, where needed, with verified data as a result. The company is a European provider of cloud-based identity and access management for enterprises, offering a cloud identity platform to empower companies in dynamic and regulated industries to securely connect customers and business ecosystems to their online services. The identity suite is designed for European enterprises and helps them create an omnichannel or digital customer experience that is frictionless and in line with privacy protection and the highest security standards.
How does it work?
OneWelcome provides tools for B2B, B2C and gig workers and their related use cases.
From single sign-on (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to cloud scalability, OneWelcome offers a robust set of tools that helps companies to give end-users access to their digital properties. While this is the trend right now, the company aims to move towards a ‘passwordless’ future, which OneWelcome brings to life using biometrics.
Today’s difficult password policies make people use the same password across services, which compromises their security. Apart from ‘passwordless’, the company expects banks, insurance companies, and other financial institutions to get rid of paper and wet ink for Know Your Customer (KYC). Digital signing, the use of eIDs,- governmental or private party provided – to verify identity and external validations of someone’s credentials (like a driver’s license, an MBA, or a health certificate) – will be the standard in the next couple of years.
