Trulio with their Mobile ID innovation impressed judges across every judging criteria, from originality to implementation, making them the clear Category Winner for Compliance Innovation. RemTECH judge and Executive Director at JP Morgan Chase for real-time payments US launch, Sofia Freyder cited, “global compliance and regulatory challenges,” as the industry hurtle she is most interested in finding innovative solutions towards. The Compliance Innovation was certainly a category to keep an eye on.
Trulio’s Mobile ID uses the data of mobile money operators to produce an identification for senders, who typically have difficulty proving their identity. Particularly for anti money laundering compliance, this innovation helps ease the regulator, MSB, and sender all at once by leveraging existing infrastructure. Perhaps these are the reasons one anonymous judge decided to award Trulio’s Mobile ID with an additional Mention award for Wide-Ranging Potential stating:
“Trulioo’s entry was the most compelling entry for me. The effectiveness and simplicity, and wide ranging potential of the Mobile ID solution really stood out.”
RemTECH Co-Chair Olivia Chow explains:
“By leveraging existing industry data to provide better value to customers, Trulioo’s Mobile ID was the only entry to win both an award and a mention from RemTECH judges truly validating the need for and ingenuity of their solution.”
The judging panel used the RemTECH Awards 2018 voting decentralized application developed by Yokip Consulting with Horizon State technology, which stores each of the judge’s ballots on the Ethereum blockchain by category via a category-specific smart contract.
