Avoco are continually innovating to keep ahead of the competition. Our mantra is simple, to make better tools to give industry the power to better compete.
We are working in a number of areas to innovate around our API – adding in benefit across the spectrum of uses of online identity and identity data. These areas include:
Blockchain. We can use both private and public blockchains to:
Prove they are verified to a certain level
Prove (in a privacy enhanced manner) they have certain attributes, e.g. over 18
Keep a record of consent and revocation of consent, to share verified identity data
BitCardID. A way to visualise blockchain entries. Customers can see a set of digital cards in a wallet. Each card represents a verified attribute that is anchored on a blockchain or distributed ledger. Services can consumer these cards under user consent. Cards can be used to minimally disclose user data helping to meet compliance requirements such as GDPR.
Improving Verification. Verification is a hurdle to the creation and uptake of assured identities. Avoco are working across a number of areas, including Machine Learning to improve the way in which wide demographic users have identity checks performed during registration and post registration; we see verification as an ongoing process.
Smart Identity and Data the Avoco Way

Identity providers - with a variety of out-of-the-box authentication measures
Smart verification that improves match rates

Avoco are changing the way that assured digital identity and data can be used in online transactions.
Digital identity is no longer a single, static, object. It is about a fluid, cross domain, expandable, and powerful way for you to connect with your wider customer and business associate base.
Because the ways in which digital identity can and should be used, the result, is that the use cases needing to be serviced by a digital identity, are wide in scope and demographic. Hard-coded platforms are no longer able to deal with what is fast becoming the pivot upon which business depends – identifying someone. E-commerce, banking, government, the Internet of Things (IoT), and wider industry, needs to have tools that are flexible enough to derive their personal business needs.
This is why Avoco has moved outside of the constraints of identity and data platforms, into the more flexible and dynamic world of the Trust Platform API. Our technology behind some of the world’s most innovative identity systems, such as the UK Government’s assured identity service – Verify.
The Avoco solutions can be used by any industry that is looking to service its customer or client base. Our approach means that you can have a configuration to your specific needs, very easily. Avoco enables customers to deliver higher assurance identity services, at lower cost and faster to market.
Our technology allows enterprises to meet the compliance requirements of a number of data security and privacy directives, including: PSD2, AML4, and GDPR. It also offers solutions to Open Banking and KYC.
