The effectiveness of IDwall’s solutions can be illustrated by their partnership with some of the leading transportation, banking, and fintech firms in Brazil. A case, for instance, is IDwall’s solution to 99, the fastest growing ride-hailing mobile service in Brazil. Before approaching IDwall, although 99 had received a big round of investment, it still could not grow its operations, as it was unable to check and validate drivers in the many complex and old Brazilian public institutions. Enter IDwall; it helped them automate their complete identity validation process in a highly integrative fashion. Thus, helping 99 swiftly grow its operations to the whole of Brazil.



As IDwall moves ahead, it is fuelled with the ambition to expand its ID validation solution to the whole of Brazil, covering all the 27 different types of IDs. It also looks forward to exploring the application of blockchain solutions to KYC process, and develop a device to facilitate physical validation of identities. As 2018 nears, IDwall’s pen-ultimate goal for next year is to become the market leader in Brazil and expand its solution to the South American continent.
