“We are delighted to win the Miami Innovation Jam. Our solution is what I call ‘Customer First Security’. The REL-ID mobile-first security platform was designed for today’s world and today’s consumer. No more passwords, no more worry about stolen credentials, the need to divulge PII or answer bizarre questions about my favorite foods or songs when someone calls in, and most importantly customers can interact with their bank the way they want – email, chat, voicemail. We’re thrilled to be able to be awarded the chance to share our solution at the global competition in Dublin.”
Ben Robinson, Chief Strategy Officer at Temenos, commented:
“The Miami Innovation Jam is the second of eight competitions to be held across the globe to find the most exciting fintech startups. This is the third year that we have run the global Innovation Jam series, and the third time we’ve held the regional event in Miami. We continue to see incredible and innovative solutions being brought to the table every year, and I would like to thank all 10 of the contestants for participating, and I look forward to seeing the winners at TCF.”
