Businesses can integrate with Decentro to extract information from a customer’s standard KYC document images as well as validate the same using the Validate APIs. The major benefit of this offering is that customers do not have to enter any information and business can just pre-fill the information from the document.

Decentro powers 2 flows here.
* Scan: This flow allows businesses to extract information from standard ID documents
* Scan & Verify: This flow allows businesses to extract information from standard ID documents as well as verify the same from the associated public repository
