With educational institutions processing thousands of education certificates per semester, preserving the integrity of their education certifications amidst the global proliferation of fraudulent credentials became a big challenge. This is where Accredify stepped in.
Accredify, an information technology and services firm that enables organisations to create and issue verifiable tamper-proof documents, also known as Accredified documents, sought to simplify the management of education credentials by automating administrative processes whilst protecting its value with anti-tampering technology, a solution that the firm is terming as TrustTech.
Accredify’s solution is built on decentralised ledger technology (DLT) to create Accredified education credentials which can be verified instantly with an online verifier portal or by scanning a QR code on the certificate itself. With DLT, data portability between disparate entities such as schools or employers, who previously had no mode of data transfer prior to Accredify’s solution, is ensured. This allows the cross-border and cross-institution sharing of education records, facilitating learner mobility.
