will now we be automated.
“The launch of this new platform is phenomenal because it is going to help solve several bottlenecks usually encountered in conducting physical verification of credentials and certifications. The platform totally eliminates the length of time required in conducting physical verifications as it can now be completed within a space of just one to 48 hours at most.
