London, UK – (February 2020) Shufti Pro will provide ID verification and liveness detection services to Boatigo Pty Ltd. It will help Boatigo deliver a secure environment to its online community of captains and passengers. 

Boatigo is reshaping the boating experience by bringing boat owners and boat passengers on a unique platform. It allows the captains to register their boat on its platform and crew the ability to secure seats online. Since fraudsters are everywhere, becoming an intermediary required taking concrete steps for the security of passengers using Boatigo to get out on the water. 

The problem was they wanted to practice high-security standards on their platform while maintaining efficiency. Shufti Pro helped them perform swift, real-time verifications on boat captains and crew before allowing them to list vessels or secure seats. Shufti Pro provides swift verifications at economic prices with high efficiency. It helped Boatigo save time, effort, and money. 

Identity verification services of Shufti Pro delivered with 98.67% accuracy will provide a global risk cover to Boatigo. It’ll be able to screen captains and crew registering on their website. It will ensure the safety of passengers using Boatigo to find seats on boats. Boatigo is taking a bold step by connecting the stakeholders in the boating industry. So, security is vital to gain success and onboard a trusted clientele. 

Developing an in-house solution is quite expensive and manual verification doesn’t go well with their business model. So they took a wise decision and joined hands with Shufti Pro to share their due diligence burden. Shufti Pro will verify the government-issued ID card for them along with liveness detection, helping Boatigo gain useful insights about their customers. 

Talking about this collaboration, Joel Keane, CEO of Boatigo, said;

“Boatigo is very different from most other peer-to-peer services because the captain and crew interact on the same trip out on the water in a boat. Our initial community discussions highlighted a concern around community member authenticity.  Shufti Pro allows us to securely verify our community member identities by means of a government-issued ID and a liveness check. This gives both Boatigo and our community members peace of mind that people on the platform are who they say they are. Furthermore, Shufti Pro completely automates this process for us, which saves valuable time and development costs.”

Shufti Pro is also excited to start this partnership with Boatigo. Victor Fredung, CEO Shufti Pro said,

“We have our pride in providing global services to businesses with diverse business models, and Boatigo is an unusual business. Our solutions fit well in different roles, either for obligatory customer screening or fraud prevention. We look forward to maintaining a long-term relationship with Boatigo.”
