The biometric digital authentication and automated onboarding solution of technology company iiDENTIFii has won the Best Enterprise Solution award of the MTN Business App of the Year Awards 2021.

While technically complex, the solution assures that an individual is a real person and present at the time of transaction or verification, and that the person’s online identity, in a digital world, is who the person claims to be, says iiDENTIFii co-founder and chief strategy officer Lance Fanaroff.

“We wanted to make sure we could offer a secure and user-friendly technology platform that authenticates physical identities in a connected world. iiDENTIFii offers an end-to-end digital authentication that delivers in under 30 seconds and meets the highest standards of security and data protection,” he says.

The Covid-19 pandemic has elevated the role of digital solutions, pushing businesses of all types to conduct business online. With exponentially increasing online digital penetration, almost all businesses need solutions that minimise their risk and make online business models convenient and safe to use, he adds.

“It is imperative that technology solutions solve real world problems. We believe that innovation has to solve some of the significant challenges we have as a continent and as a world. We already have some incredible examples locally and we are proud to now stand among them too.”

“The past three years have been exhilarating as we worked to develop a leading digital authentication and onboarding solution. The credibility gained from this award is almost priceless, and will greatly assist us to further implement our growth across the African continent,” says Fanaroff.

The award will assist the company to not only extend its footprint, but to also increase its scale and traction with clients, while working tirelessly to ensure the solution remains relevant and is constantly improved and updated,
