miiCard in PwC Private Business Awards Scotland Shortlist
miiCard Online Identity Service shortlisted for Technology Innovation of the Year in the Scotland 2014 PwC Private Business Awards
As pioneers of the "digital passport" we are always delighted with recognition for the work we are doing to bring trust to the Internet, and so being shortlisted for the Private Business Awards for Technology of the Year in Scotland is a milestone of which we are extremely proud.
Sponsored by PwC, in association with HSBC Private Bank and Ford Sinclair Events, this nomination recognises miiCard as a company that has developed an innovative and transformational service with commercial viability and is summarised on their blog as follows:
"The brainchild of Canadian entrepreneur and IT expert James Varga, miiCard is a global identy service solution that proves ‘you are who you say you are’, - online and in minutes.
Operating to the same high standard as a physical passport or photo ID check, it enables people and businesses to meet and transact online in complete confidence across a range of services from payments and consumer finance to e-commerce and recruitment.
With ambitions to be the universal standard for online identity verification globally, this fast growiing start-up continues to innovate, expand its customer base and attract accolades, most recently in the FSTech Awards and Mattermark 2014".
miiCard's Business Development VP Magnus Bray, pictured below, said being shortlisted for the awards was a significant achievement for the company. "Being shortlisted for the award from one of the largest global professional services networks provides tremendous confirmation for miiCard. It's clear PwC see a need for greater trust online and see the value our services can bring in removing fraud and enabling high value transactions in a purely digital environment."
