Jumio Scores Double Award Win at Annual EGR Online Gaming Industry Awards

PALO ALTO, CA and LONDON--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) - Jumio, Inc., the fast growing online and mobile credentials management company, today announced it has been selected as the winner of several prestigious awards at the annual eGaming Review online gambling industry award ceremony in recognition for its innovative payments and ID verification products.

Against stiff competition from the established market players in identity and payments solutions, Jumio was chosen as the winner in the Fraud & Compliance Solution of the Year category and also in the Innovation in Payments Solutions category. "In a short space of time Jumio has already made a big impact on how operators are viewing traditional KYC processes," said Tom Victor of eGaming Review. "Jumio should be proud of winning these awards and beating the more established players."

The eGaming Review awards panel is comprised of top executives from the Power50, the widely accepted industry view of the top movers and shakers from the largest regulated gaming operators. They evaluated the shortlisted companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as technology innovation, intellectual property and market understanding.

"We're honored that the online gaming industry recognized Jumio for our innovative approach by fundamentally changing the way that gaming operators verify their customers," said Daniel Mattes, founder and CEO of Jumio. "Online gaming operators want frictionless and global tools to ensure that their customers are who they say they are and are of legal age. Customers want to be able to register and create accounts without the administrative hassle of sending copies of ID documents in the post, by fax or by email. Jumio delivers that promise of creating a great customer experience whilst offering robust identity verification."

Jumio's Netverify is the easiest way for a business to validate a customer's identity in real time, allowing consumers from over 60 countries to scan their ID, driver license, passport or utility bill to verify their identity for account registrations, large purchases, or to meet a variety of KYC requirements.

Jumio's Netswipe lets consumers scan and validate their credit card using their computer or smartphone camera, eliminating the need for error-prone key entry, leading to increased conversion rates and revenue, and enabling reductions in fraud and associated chargeback costs.
