Businesses are adapting to the new market realities of digital transformation. Throughout the pandemic, reliance on online services has significantly increased. We have witnessed how consumers react and adapt to the ever-changing digital pace, with the goal of always being connected in every move.

(1) addressing identity trust issues; and

(2) establishing fraud prevention strategies.

As digital engagements grow, cybercriminals have also become more strategic with their schemes, which affects customer trust.

They want to get whatever they want almost precisely when they need it. This is the reason why it is essential for businesses to get to know what kind of consumers they are dealing with.

This is true especially now with modern buyers who are constantly connected, app-native, and adept in various technological usage. They are the ones who are actually privy and careful with their transactions. Therefore, institutions have new roles to adjust the delivery of services to these consumers, such that personalized customer experience is attained through digital identity.

Digital Identity: Ditching Consumer Abandonment

This role is fundamental in maintaining consumer trust and the security of transactions. However, the rapid growth in digitisation, new technologies, and new user behaviours have dramatically changed the scope and processes of identity management obligations.

Enterprises across the world invest in the digitisation of their businesses, including payment and verification processes and document authentication. These digital-based identity solutions incorporate consumer online behaviour, location, and devices with advanced identity technologies.

In effect, these solutions do not only suppress fraudulent behaviours; it also helps businesses with easy customer recognition and rewards. Furthermore, because of these technological advances, transactions become time-efficient, levels of accuracy are enhanced, and compliance is greatly improved.

The autonomy character of digital identity further reduces the risk of human error in verification and identification processes. These reliable and independent digital identity systems have dual-purpose tools that benefit both the business enterprise and its customers. These systems offer compelling value addition to businesses while improving the consumer experience, making lasting business relationships.
