ID-Pal partners with Keystone Talent Bank for right to work checks

ID-Pal, the global identity verification provider, has partnered with Keystone Talent Bank to streamline employee onboarding via real-time digital right to work checks.  

The Dublin, Ireland-based company has been certified by the UK government to carry out the checks under the Digital Identity & Attributes Truth Framework. 

UK-based Keystone Talent Bank provides an online suite of tools for the sourcing, hiring, managing, compliance and payment of employees, contractors and contingent workers.  

As a government-certified digital identity provider, ID-Pal enables Keystone Talent Bank to comply with UK Home Office guidelines while securing right to work checks.  

ID-Pal will enable the efficient onboarding of all student, temporary and payrolled workers via an app, as well as updating of documentation in line with current legislation.  

On the integration, Malcom Paice, managing director of Keystone Talent Bank, commented: “We chose to work with ID-Pal at exactly the right time. They have already built the solution we need.  

“Adoption of ID-Pal has been frictionless and it has been easy to communicate what was changing and how the improved process would work.” 

On the partnership, ID-Pal enterprise sales manager Mark O’Hara said: “With an out-of-the-box solution like ID-Pal, anyone can be onboarded remotely or in person, in seconds.  

“The solution offers a reminder function (via email or SMS), removing the allocation of resources to follow-up. Users of Keystone Talent Bank benefit from a branded experience to securely capture additional documents all within a single workflow.” 

Expansion into the US 

ID-Pal also recently announced its launch into the US market. 

The regtech’s official entrance into the US comes a year after its UK launch and series A funding round 

UK businesses now account for more than 30% of ID-Pal’s revenue, while 15% comes from the US. 

On the launch, Colum Lyons, chief executive officer and founder of ID-Pal, commented: “With the support of Enterprise Ireland, our US and European investors, and our strategic partners, we are officially launching into the US. 

“The standard of security, fast deployment, and digital transformation we provide organisations sets us apart.  

“We work with industry leaders from across 30 sectors, which is evidence that our technology-first approach to identity verification makes it simple, secure, and convenient for any organisation.”
