miiCard Builds on Recent Momentum and Vision for Linking Physical and Digital Identity with myrentalcv Partnership
Edinburgh, UK – December 12, 2013 – Online identity proofing service miiCard today announced that it will help power ID verification for myrentalcv’s tenant screening platform to ensure quick and secure references for agents and landlords. myrentalcv is changing the traditional letting model by bringing together all the essential tenant information that agents need to quickly and securely make a decision about a tenant’s suitability online. This partnership builds on recent miiCard customer announcements, its selection to new U.S FinTech incubator SixThirty, and the company being named the fastest growing startup in Edinburgh by Mattermark.
“To complete any high value transactions online, it is critical to first make a direct connection between one’s physical identity and digital persona,” said miiCard CEO James Varga. “We are excited about myrentalcv’s approach to changing the rental industry, and we are pleased that our identity proofing solution will help secure an environment so that agents and tenants can confidently connect and rent properties online.”
myrentalcv brings together all the information required to rent a property conveniently and securely in one place. miiCard confirms a tenant’s identity to the same level as an offline ID check, but purely online and in just minutes. Tenants need only set it up once, then they can aggregate information over time to use as a comprehensive and up-to-date means of demonstrating suitability for future rentals. myrentalcv partnered with miiCard to reduce the administrative overhead associated with in-person ID document checks and combat fraud from reliance on data checks, while making it easy for agents to review and approve potential tenants purely online.
