Hello Soda launches single API platform Sodium

Global identity specialist, Hello Soda, launches a new single API platform to simplify the delivery of its suite of Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-money Laundering (AML) and fraud prevention solutions.

Hello Soda identified that many stakeholders were having difficulty implementing multiple identity verification solutions independently. Its developers have responded to this challenge and the lack of cross-solution data analysis to help perform enhanced checks with the launch of Sodium.

Sodium is a single API platform that enables seamless integration with all of Hello Soda’s automated and global KYC and AML solutions.

Sodium has been designed and built by a multi-lingual team of ID and data science specialists across the globe. This new platform will further enhance the difference Hello Soda brings to global and local businesses and economies where traditional verification methods cannot be achieved.

This game-changing platform now enables organisations to not only add multiple ID&V products seamlessly but it cross-references data to perform additional checks leading to a truly enhanced customer due diligence (EDD). From document ID data cross-referenced with the dark web to an individual’s social footprint compared to CRA data, Sodium certainly delivers a multi-pronged approach to identity verification.

Hello Soda’s identity verification solutions are truly global with their products being used across a wide range of sectors in 177 countries. Sodium will enable Hello Soda to extend its reach and the continued growth globally of this innovative business.

James Blake, CEO of Hello Soda said: “We’re extremely proud of what we’ve developed with this new single API platform. Sodium will enable us to continue our global growth, and speed up the thousands of checks we carry out every day to keep customers and companies going.

“We work with businesses all over the world, and are currently growing our client base in Latin America and Asia, and are making ID verification more accessible in Africa. That’s thanks to our suite of solutions and new API platform that makes it possible to verify anyone, anywhere in the world. It’s fantastic to see us improving digital security in so many countries throughout the world.”

Hello Soda works across a wide range of regulated and non-regulated sectors where user and customer identity checks are needed. Some of their global clients include Blockchain, eToro, Klarna, Paysafe, and Sun Finance.
