Vatebra and Credence ID expand student verification platform

May 25, 2016 - 

Vatebra, a solution provider in West Africa, and Credence ID are expanding its student ID project into three new countries.

Originally launched in Nigeria, the student verification platform eliminates the risk of imposter test-takers for important examinations and gives students fast and efficient ID confirmations when taking exams.

According to a statement by the company, the expansion of this solution into Ghana, Gambia and Sierra Leone is a validation of the solution already providing benefit to the West African Examinations Council, WAEC. In Nigeria, the solution achieved virtual imposter-free proceedings in the last round of country-wide examinations.

“As a company, we have seen the evolution of thoughts and ideas. Ideas that simplify the way we conduct business to how our students register for examinations and check their results. We have seen how the CredenceOne mobile device has become the first and last touch point for virtually every young person in Nigeria today. We are proud that we are now reaching out across the continent to implement the same solution we successfully implemented in Nigeria,” says Mr. Kunle Akinniran, Managing Director of the company.

“We are delighted that the success in Nigeria is being recognized and is now expanding into more West African countries,” says Bruce Hanson, President and CEO of Credence ID. “Vatebra is an exceptional partner and has proven their significant expertise in the education sector. They are an obvious choice in West Africa for solutions that increase efficiency and reduce fraud.”
