Quicker decisioning and greater coverage with the new version of LexisNexis® IDU®


LexisNexis® Risk Solutions have today released the latest version of their web-based UK identity verification software – IDU®. This iteration of the identity management tool will help reduce identity check decisioning times, improve usability and enable users to confidently verify more individuals.

Features in this release include a new result indicator, enhanced identity card coverage – increasing the scope of individuals who can be verified – and an expansion of birth index records to improve age confirmation. These are amongst several other enhancements designed to save the end-user time and improve usability.

Speaking from their Cardiff offices Paul Weathersby, UK Product Director, LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, commented on the importance of expediting the identity verification process:

Our clients require solutions that enhance the customer onboarding process and support a seamless and pleasant customer journey. For this reason we place a great emphasis on improving identity verification speed and product usability, to ensure clients are able to confirm identities in a customer friendly manner.
