The Nigerian app “ConfirmMe” can verify a number of banking documents, credit scores, academic certificates and other professional documents instantly and online.
Users scan their documents to be cross-checked with a number of institutional databases, such as the Federal Road Safety Corporation. For example, when buying a car, both parties can verify documents like credit scores and car registration online and the deal can be done on the same day.
ConfirmMe is supported by Chams, Nigeria’s leading provider of identity management systems. It has secured a number of institutional partners, including the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System. ConfirmMe is also recognised by the National Universities’ Commission of Nigeria so that employers can verify the academic records of applicants.
