MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Jumio's scanning technology will be integrated into tech company JMango's mobile application and development platform as part of a new partnership.
Jumio's verification technology enables online merchants to instantly authenticate customer IDs or verify their credit card with a simple camera scan using a standard mobile camera or computer webcam. Requiring customers to display their actual credit card or ID virtually eliminates the risk of fraud and makes verification secure, simple and seamless for the customer.
As a technology partner, JMango will enhance and extend the reach of Jumio's verification technology to all major mobile operating systems by integrating Jumio's verification technology into the JMango mobile development platform. The first SDKs developed by JMango will also be released and available in a few short weeks.
JMango has also agreed to become a primary reseller of Jumio's verification technology and expects to announce several new deals shortly.
"It's a really elegant solution and one that fills a unique gap in the marketplace," says Ilan Oosting, Chief Executive Officer of JMango. "It simplifies a lot of the processes involved in making payments using your card and substantially reduces the friction points commonly associated with paying online or through your mobile device. This is a disruptive technology that will increase security, reduce processing time and enhance the user experience for our partners and end users."
"JMango's technology will be key in offering Jumio to a wider, global audience," says Daniel Mattes, Jumio Founder and CEO. "The speed, depth and scalability of the platform is what initially attracted us to JMango's platform and we expect this partnership to usher a new era for mobile payments as we draw from each other's technological innovations."
"We're working with Jumio to bring its technology to our users and clients," comments Duc Ngo, JMango's Chief Technical Officer. "This, in addition to the security features already implemented on our platform, will result in a very robust and secure system; security without the inconvenience commonly associated with it. It all lines up with our objective of making the mobile experience as seamless as possible for the end users."
