iiDENTIFii is a world leading remote biometric digital authentication and automated on-boarding technology platform, and the winner of the Best Enterprise Solution at the 2021 MTN Business App of the Year Awards.
“This win will surely magnify iiDENTIFii’s leadership in identity verification. The MTN Business App of the Year Awards are very highly regarded. The fact that there were over 700 submissions is indicative of this. The entire adjudication process is thorough, professional and comprehensive,” says Lance Fanaroff, Chief Strategy Officer of this award-winning Cape Town based biometric digital authentication start-up.
“These awards highlight exceptionally credible and innovative technology, and iiDENTIFii is all about credibility and trust – it’s a real privilege to have received this prestigious recognition right now. We feel honoured and humbled by this award,” Fanaroff says.
iiDENTIFii fulfils the needs of customer-focused organisations that are required to authenticate and on-board customers. The app’s remote biometric digital verification technology can authenticate and automatically on- board a person in under 30 seconds.
Fanaroff says that this app was developed to stop identity fraud, to make sure that, in a digital world, people are who they claim to be.
“In essence, we wanted to make sure we could offer a secure and user-friendly technology platform that authenticates physical identities in a connected world. iiDENTIFii strives to be a trusted partner for businesses when it comes to remote biometric identity authentication,” Fanaroff explains.
And while many within business South Africa might yet not have heard of iiDENTIFii, this solution is bound to become a digital game-changer with the digital security space.
“Providing world-class locally developed technology to customer-focused organisations is part of the reason why iiDENTIFii stood out within this category… this is only the beginning for iiDENTIFii within the thriving ICT sector in South Africa,” says Marcell Strauss from The Franchise Co.
Fanaroff says that with the exponential growth in the digital online world which has been further catapulted by the onset of COVID, iiDENTIFii has only just begun. “Remote digital biometric facial authentication, automated onboarding, Self-Sovereign Identity, and exciting new initiatives like the Covid Passport are all areas that provide enormous opportunity for us to continue to be pioneers and leaders in this exciting, and essential space,” Fanaroff maintains.
Award entries in this category were all judged according to strict criteria, assessing whether the app was a solution that specifically focuses on businesses and companies, whether it’s a locally developed app that focuses on customer relationship management, storage, utilities, business solutions and sales or e-Commerce.
Given the increase in digitalisation, particularly over the past 18 months, the development of solutions that enable people and business to be more connected have continued and thrived.
The MTN Business App of the Year Awards provide an annual platform to recognise and elevate local ‘digipreneurs‘ and showcase their exciting new innovations. This year saw an unparalleled 1 274 entries into these awards.
