Luminess (formerly Jouve) integrates the Archipels blockchain and enriches its KYC offer

The solution developed by the La Poste consortium, EDF, Engie and Caisse des Dépôts, makes it possible to guarantee 100% documentary certification by verifying information at the source.

Paris, on 15-04-2021 – A key player in the digital transformation of companies, Luminess (formerly Jouve) carries out millions of document checks on behalf of its clients each year, in order to ensure compliance when entering into a relationship and during remediation procedures . Identity documents, proof of income, proof of residence, these are more than 7 million file updates and compliance updates, and more than 20 million identity checks to secure contact entries per year by Luminess for the sole benefit of banks. In order to guarantee the 100% reliability of this procedure, Luminess chooses to rely on the documentary certification platform based on blockchain technology from Archipels, a consortium created by La Poste, EDF, Engie and Caisse des Dépôts.

Archipels has indeed chosen to operate a paradigm shift by seeking information at the source through the aggregation of data from different trusted third parties. This technological brick will allow the company to guarantee 100% the authenticity of documents thanks to a distributed trust infrastructure.

A trusted third party recognized for its expertise in remote customer identification and knowledge for banks and insurance companies, Luminess has developed a KYC platform allowing it to manage and consult large volumes of data. The integration of Archipels enriches this platform, and guarantees perfect compliance to its customers for certain documents. Imposed by European and national regulations, KYC remediation procedures are a major challenge for financial institutions in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. Strengthening the approach to compliance checks and improving the fight against fraud are necessary for a major player in digital transformation.

The unique blockchain developed by Archipels will thus make it possible to consolidate, solidify and complete the compliance control processes for this data, and to guarantee their 100% authenticity, by verifying, for example, the compliance of an Engie invoice provided by a customer to prove its domiciliation in order to obtain a consumer loan from a bank.

In the long term, other sectors such as health, in which Luminess also operates, will also be able to benefit from Archipels' solution in order to meet compliance and fraud prevention issues.

Hervé Bonazzi, CEO of Archipels, declares: “We are delighted to enable Luminess to meet the challenges of its customers in terms of document compliance thanks to the blockchain. This strategic partnership illustrates the importance of a solution such as ours for securing the data of companies and individuals in Europe."

Thibault Lanxade, Chairman and CEO, Luminess Group, said: “ Being able to guarantee our customers 100% compliance on certain documents is a guarantee of quality and very strong confidence. This partnership allows us to integrate Archipelagos blockchain and enrich our KYC relationship entry and remediation offer for our customers. »
