Coastr Partners with Credas to Revolutionise Car Rental ID Verification

Credas parners with Coastr to integrate ID checks into their car rental platform

In an exciting move, Credas has partnered with Coastr, the online car rental and shared mobility software company, to help reshape the car rental industry. 

This strategic new initiative aims to streamline the process of renting a car by integrating our biometric facial recognition technology and identity document verification into Coastr, enabling users of its car rental platform to request ID verification ahead of collection. 

Coastr’s Founder, Biswajit Kundu Roy, expressed his enthusiasm about the unique collaboration, stating, “We are excited to introduce our partnership with Credas, which is one of its kind in the mobility industry. This collaboration allows our users to perform real-time ID checks using cutting-edge biometric facial recognition, simplifying complex processes and reducing time and resource-intensive tasks.”

Through this partnership, Coastr will be able to offer their users additional benefits such as:

Enhanced Fleet Security: By implementing biometric verification, Coastr adds an extra layer of security, ensuring that only authorized renters gain access to rental properties or vehicles. This reduces the risk of theft, unauthorized use, and fraud, promoting a safer rental experience.

Streamlining the Booking Process: Renters can now swiftly verify their identity in real-time, eliminating the need for time-consuming and error-prone traditional methods such as ID checks and paperwork.

Boosting Operational Efficiency: Rental operators can save valuable time and resources by replacing manual verification, paperwork, and document checks with Credas’s advanced technology.

Enabling Contactless Journeys: Coastr’s partnership with Credas allows users to perform contactless ID checks, eliminating the need for physical interaction between renters and operators. This creates a more efficient and seamless rental experience for all parties involved.

Tim Barnett, CEO of Credas, commented on the collaboration, stating, “We are excited to begin this exciting partnership with Coastr, a company at the forefront of the digital transformation of the automotive industry. 

Our collaboration will play a pivotal role in reshaping the landscape of car rental and shared mobility, enhancing security, streamlining booking processes, and ultimately reducing the risks associated with fraud and identity theft within the sector.

This partnership also shows the flexibility of the Credas platform and how it can be adapted to a wide variety of use cases and industries thanks to our new configuration engine.”
