"A lot of headaches have gone away since we've started to use Mati. Around 75% of our customers automatically go through the verification process, which is a big deal. We receive way fewer complaints as well on social media and on the app store, which helped us improve our rating. Mati definitely helped us be more confident in scaling our process: we can acquire new customers and open new markets without having to worry about compliance or time to respond - which is great, as we're planning to expand to even more countries in the next months!"
"What we love about Mati is that we finally found an identity platform that checks for everything. No need to get 3 or 4 different providers. You can just use Mati, they make all the checks, that's it. We felt so confident that right after we completed the integration with Mati, we filled out our KYC/AML screening to CNBV!"
