Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: SheerID protects exclusive offers to high value customer segments like the military, students, and teachers for customer-obsessed brands. By instantly verifying credentials through nearly 9,000 authoritative data sources, SheerID delivers a seamless customer experience that drives customer acquisition, and grows revenue, while mitigating fraud. As a result, the world’s biggest brands including Amazon, Discover, Lowe’s, Spotify, and T-mobile rely on SheerID as their trusted verification provider. Founded in 2011, SheerID is backed by Voyager Capital and Centana Growth Partners.

How they describe their product/innovation: We will demonstrate two use cases for consumer focused financial organizations. The first use case will show how an organization can instantly verify a student’s credentials for an exclusive credit card offer. In addition to verifying the student’s credentials, we will show additional insights like school name and degree type to allow the bank to determine how they’d like to further personalize the offer and terms. The second use case will demonstrate how we can instantly verify military members and their family to maintain SCRA compliance for loan products and other investments.
