Sunrise deploys digital customer identification

Thursday 23 November 2017 | 12:37 CET | News
Following positive feedback from a pilot of its ID Checker, Swiss operator Sunrise announced deployment of the first completely digital customer identification system in Switzerland. When a customer orders a new product online, he receives a QR code via e-mail. The customer then scans the QR code with his smartphone, scans the front and back of his ID, records a video selfie, and signs on the smartphone using a stylus or finger. The valid contract documents are then immediately available in the customer's My Sunrise account.
