Vouched, an AI-driven identity verification platform, launched its latest solution, VouchedAuto, designed to streamline the customer verification process for traditional and online automotive retailers and rideshare businesses. The new AI-powered solution automates the identity verification (IDV) process to improve efficiency, customer service and cost savings, as well as mitigate fraud and maintain regulatory compliance.
“Digital transformation in the auto industry is being driven by increasingly sophisticated and AI-driven identity verification solutions that fully automate the onboarding process, mitigate fraud and allow businesses to maintain regulatory compliance,” said John Baird, co-founder and CEO, Vouched. “With VouchedAuto, we’re helping our customers accelerate their digital transformation journey, and achieve a faster path to tangible business results that not only include cost savings, but also improve the customer experience to boost satisfaction, loyalty and ultimately increase sales.”Driveway, a subsidiary of Lithia Motors, one of the largest global automotive retailers, began working with Vouched to redefine its customer onboarding experience for online car transactions. The team uses the VouchedAuto solution to automate the identity verification process as it transitions to a digital-first, automated workflow. Since implementing the solution, Driveway has realized a 40% reduction in average onboarding time and a 65% decline in fraudulent transactions.
“Shortly after launching our new eCommerce platform, we found ourselves ill-equipped to handle fraud attempts targeting our business. We turned to Vouched and it was a game-changing decision”, said Jason Cohen, director of sales operations at Lithia Motors & Driveway. “Our lost profit due to fraud was immediately reduced by 80%, and our relationship grew into a partnership as they customized solutions for us. I highly recommend Vouched.”
