iPulse launches Voice Biometric Solution

With effect from 1 November 2022, iPulse will be launching its new product range called VoiceIQ.cloud, allowing clients to procure voice biometrics as-a-service, and hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform like the rest of the
IQSuite.cloud product range.

Unlike most voice products in the market, the VoiceIQ.cloud product can be set up and running within minutes and is charged per transaction with no setup, licensing, or implementation fees, making it an incredibly affordable product that is quick to implement and integrate into existing offerings.

As a fully hosted iPulse service, clients can rest assured that the iPulse uptime warranty applies, and can begin integrating the simple, yet powerful API into their own products immediately to consume the service. Both active and passive options are supported, and it’s up to the end client to determine how they want to implement the solution, since API calls can dynamically adapt to either option.

The voice matching and liveness detection algorithms are provided by IDVoice®, a product from ID R&D that has ranked first in several recent voice biometrics algorithm competitions and powers the solution with award-winning biometric performance.

Gary Chalmers, CEO, iPulse Systems, says: “As part of becoming a member of the Pivotal Group of companies, our recent partnership with OneVault, South Africa’s leading voice biometric supplier, has enabled us to gain years of experience in months. Our joint teams have wrapped all their knowledge and experience with our incredibly powerful IQSuite.cloud orchestration layer and uses the ID R&D product to provide an industry-first solution that should prove completely disruptive in this sector, bringing the power of voice to anyone at an affordable price.”

Alexey Khitrov, CEO and Co-Founder of ID R&D added: “The partnership that began with OneVault has now materialised into an iPulse product, and we are extremely pleased to be contributing to its success with the best-inclass accuracy that IDVoice® is known for. We are enthusiastic about the possibilities for this unique solution and look forward to working together to make a big impact with VoiceIQ.cloud.”
