authID has a prominent new partner in the Middle East. The company has signed an agreement with Workforce360 that will see the latter use its identity verification services.
Based in Dubai, Workforce360 offers a Software-as-a-Service platform that is aimed at connecting hiring organizations with overseas recruitment agents. This is in response to a growing need to bring skilled and unskilled labor into the Gulf Corporation Council countries, with Workforce360 noting that hiring overseas workers “requires 35 intricate steps,” compared to just seven “basic steps” for the hiring of domestic talent.
Now, the company is looking to speed up the recruitment process through the use of authID’s document-based identity verification solution, which can automatically authenticate over 12,000 government IDs and passports from around the world.
“authID’s seamless identity document verification solution was far superior in meeting our demands for speed, precision and accuracy,” explained Workforce360 CEO Alexander de Oliveira. “Providing our valued network of agents and employers with fast, high-volume recruitment is paramount to our mission. authID helps us facilitate the necessary transparency so employers can focus on their core business, while our platform transforms digital global recruitment.”
News of the partnership arrives on the heels of authID’s announcement of a 300 percent increase in sales, quarter-over-quarter, for Q3 of 2023. Under a new leadership team installed earlier this year, the company has been working to broaden its client base, and has managed to secure over $1 million in “Booked Annual Recurring Revenue” in its latest quarter. While the company is best known for its facial recognition-based solutions, which can be used for authentication and identity verification, its document-focused technology is clearly helping to drive business on its own.
“We are excited to help Workforce360 deliver the highest levels of speed, transparency and identity trust in international workforce recruitment,” said authID CEO Rhon Daguro.
