On the 4th August 2016, Contego were delighted to announce their placement in Tech City News, as our CTO Matt Law discussed Biometrics: The journey to simpler ID verification.

Matt advocated the recent advances in biometric technology and he explained its promise to hold the key to faster ID checks and ultimately a more seamless and speedy process when opening a bank account.

So the news that HSBC business customers will now be able to open new accounts with a selfie, demonstrates that high street banks are moving to towards biometrics to simplify its business banking application process.

Life could become much easier: from unlocking your car to joining a new company, or even just opening a bank account.
