Table of contents

Do you need to extend the capabilities of your forms, without investing a lot of time in coding? 

In this post, we bring you five reliable solutions that will help you to further improve the security and UX of your forms. From facial recognition and file uploads, to easily manage international phone numbers and your video call calendar.

1. Passbase: facial recognition and ID documents

Passbase is an identity verification engine that allows you to verify and manage your users' identity information with a suite of developer tools and dashboards. 

You can use it in Arengu forms to easily identify and verify users with government ID documents and facial recognition.

Why do we like it?

  • Authentication accuracy and haste. Authenticate 6,000+ government issued identity documents from over 190 countries in a matter of seconds, both on web and mobile.
  • NIST face comparison technology. Match IDs to faces with top-ranked NIST technology and verify identity via ID documents, selfies, and government databases. 
  • Liveness detection technology. Prevents sophisticated spoofing attempts by identifying and sorting recaptured versions of a person from a live and genuine session, making sure they are physically present during verification.

2. ALiCE Biometrics: user verification and profiling

ALiCE is a frictionless identity verification solution for digital on-boarding and KYC/AML compliance. It just asks for a selfie and an ID card photo to enroll customers securely.

You can use it in Arengu forms to verify users and create a detailed user profile by connecting to public and private databases.

Why do we like it?

  • Global regulation compliance. Meet Anti Money Laundering, Know Your Customer, GDPR, and PSD2 requirements with this borders agnostic solution.
  • Customer profile creation. ALiCE connects to public and private databases in order to create detailed user profiles.
  • Liveness detection & document verification. To verify the identity of a user, it verifies the authenticity of the ID document and captures its content, matches the ID photo to a selfie and performs active and passive liveness detection. It also scans bank statements or utilities bills for proof of residence.

3. Calendly: appointment scheduler

Calendly is a scheduling software, which aims to save time, accelerate sales, and improve service quality by eliminating the use of email and phone tags for scheduling appointments.

You can use it in Arengu forms to set your availability and choose the type of meeting you want to have. Then it coordinates everything with your invitees before and after the meeting. 

Why do we like it?

  • Efficiency and time saving. It really allows you to eliminate the hassle of back-and-forth emails to set the day and time of the meetings.
  • Easy to use and integrate, but flexible enough to get advanced features. In addition with Arengu, it integrates with the most common tools (Gmail, Slack, Intercom…).
  • Customizable reminders. Automatically send custom notifications before and after events. Personalize from subject, message and event details to custom questions for invitees to answer. 

4. FileStack: file uploading implementation

Filestack is a set of tools and powerful APIs that allow you to upload, transform and deliver content easily. Its scalable infrastructure powers billions of uploads, transformations and downloads every month providing great performance to users anywhere in the world.

You can use it in Arengu forms to get files uploaded and ready for delivery. 

Why do we like it?

  • Usability. Easy for our users to manage and quick to implement for developers. The JS plugin is easy to integrate, and makes it very simple to add uploads anywhere.
  • Reliability and security. Authorize various API operations like protecting public URLs, guaranteeing a secure file upload every time. Deliver large multimedia files and documents to users with a powerful Content Ingestion Network.
  • Advanced features. Add intelligence to your workflow with a few lines of code, so your content is tagged and virus free before it hits your app.

5. International Telephone Input

A JavaScript plugin sponsored by Twilio for entering and validating international telephone numbers.

You can use it in Arengu forms to add a flag dropdown to phone number fields, detect the user's country, display a relevant placeholder and provide formatting/validation methods.

Why do we like it?

  • Automations. Automatically select the user's current country using an IP lookup and set the input placeholder to an example number for the selected country. Get the full standardized international number when the user types their national number.
  • Usability. Navigate the country dropdown by typing a country's name, or using up/down keys, handle phone number extensions and easily find countries thanks to the flag icons.
  • Customization and validation. Lots of initialization options for customization, as well as public methods for interaction. Full validation, including specific error types.
