Transforming the Landscape of Identity Verification in Uganda

Transforming the Landscape of Identity Verification in Uganda

Identity verification is a crucial process for many businesses and organizations that need to verify the identity and credentials of their customers, users, or partners. Identity verification can help prevent fraud, comply with regulations, enhance security, and improve customer experience. However, traditional methods of identity verification, such as manual data entry, paper-based documents, or expensive hardware devices, are often slow, costly, error-prone, and vulnerable to forgery or manipulation.
