March 30, 2021 | Source: WorldReach

(OTTAWA) – WorldReach is delighted to announce our ranking of 8th in the Ottawa Business Journal’s (OBJ) Fastest Growing Companies list for 2021. OBJ’s list recognizes Ottawa-based enterprises for substantial, sustainable and profitable revenue growth over the past three years and WorldReach is pleased with our substantial growth rate. As one of the top-10 companies on this list, WorldReach is profiled in the Spring issue of Ottawa Business Journal.

The OBJ Fastest Growing List marks the 3rd growth list ranking that WorldReach has been awarded in the last seven months. In September, we were recognized for our 3-year growth rate of 404% in the Globe and Mail Canada’s Top Growing Companies List and October brought the distinction of our position in the Canadian Business Growth List for our equally impressive 5-year growth rate of 339%.

“I could not be more proud of our team of diverse, committed, and experienced individuals that work together to create this ongoing success for our company. The Ottawa Business Journal Fastest Growing Company 2021 ranking is significant for many reasons – not only does this list acknowledge our continued path of rapid growth, but this third growth list ranking in this past year can be celebrated in Ottawa, our headquarters, where the majority of our colleagues work and live. With close to 30 years as a business in Ottawa, we are thankful for this recognition.”

Gord Wilson, CEO of WorldReach

Highlights of our recent successes:

  • WorldReach continues its unparalleled success with the UK Home Office’s EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) for its smartphone based remote digital ID Verification (IDV) and enrolment capability. Completed applications have surpassed 5 million with an industry leading completion rate.
  • Eurostar Pilot Project LAMINAR is targeted for mid 2021 where travellers at London’s St Pancras International Station will be able to use a touchless biometric lane without presenting any formal identification or ticket on arrival at the station, reducing friction and safety concerns.
  • Canada’s Chain of Trust Pilot employs a similar approach for air arrivals. Biographic and biometric data is captured early in the travel continuum and a derived digital travel credential (DTC, using the new ICAO standard) is stored in the secure wallet on the smartphone. This verified credential is shared and combined with dynamic risk assessment to determine the appropriate channel for each passenger arriving at the border. The ultimate aim is to achieve zero wait time at a new touchless border for eligible, low-risk passengers, starting with returning Canadians in the current pre-production scale pilot.
  • Juniper Digital Identity Report 2020-2025 – WorldReach is a Segment Focused Leading Challenger and one of fourteen companies profiled on their digital identity leader board. The EUSS was one of only three successful case studies highlighted in the report.
  • WTTC Global Guides for Safe & Seamless Traveller Journey Report – WorldReach is one of nine companies profiled as technology providers that support the implementation of SSTJ concepts. It highlights the Eurostar and Chain of Trust Pilots along with the EU Settlement Scheme.

WorldReach 2020: The Year of Rapid Digital Change

January 5, 2021 | Source: WorldReach

(OTTAWA) – The year 2020 will go down in history for many things, but one of the most progressive aspects has been the urgent need for contactless identity verification for Government eService delivery. A recent McKinsey & Company Report has estimated that COVID-19 has accelerated the digitization of customer/citizen interactions by three to four years, and digital product development by more than seven years. As an established leader in remote identity and digital ID document verification, five+ years before COVID-19, WorldReach has seen incredible company and client growth in 2020 as a result.

WorldReach made not one but two Fastest Growing Companies Lists 

  1. The Globe and Mail Canada’s Top Growing Companies List recognizing our 3-year growth rate of over 404%. We rank 119th overall with the second highest growth rate of all 19 Ottawa-based companies on the list. 
  2. Canadian Business Growth List for our equally impressive 5-year growth rate of 339%.

2020 saw WorldReach continue its unparalleled success with the UK Home Office’s EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) for its smartphone based digital ID Verification (IDV) and enrolment capability. Completed applications surpassed 4.3 million with an industry leading conversion rate. Kevin Foster, Minister for Future Borders and Immigration, UK Home Office said, “The scheme is the biggest of its kind in British history”. The EUSS also won the UK Home Office ‘Best Public Sector Project’ at the National Technology Awards 2020.

WorldReach used 2020 to build stronger strategic partnerships with best of breed technologies and focus on safe, innovative processes informed by decades of experience deploying real-world Government to Citizen digital services. We immersed ourselves in the international technical standards for secure travel documents, based around ICAO Document 9303 and the new Digital Travel Credential (DTC) standard, announced in late 2020. Our staff are active participants in standards setting bodies and best practices organizations for safe and seamless borders (WTTC, IATA, IBMATA, Future Borders Coalition), digital identity (DIACC), device security (FIDO Alliance) and biometrics (Biometrics Institute).

Incorporating DTCs, WorldReach’s IDV solution is included in two global contactless travel entry Pilots set to begin in early 2021
  1. Eurostar Pilot Project LAMINAR is targeted for spring 2021 where travellers at London’s St Pancras International Station will be able to use a touchless biometric lane without presenting any formal identification or ticket, reducing friction and safety concerns.
  2. Canada’s Chain of Trust Pilot employs similar approach, but for air. Biographic and biometric data is captured early in the travel continuum and a derived digital travel credential (DTC) is stored in the secure wallet on the smartphone. This verified credential is shared and combined with dynamic risk assessment to determine the appropriate channel for each passenger at the border. The ultimate aim is to achieve zero wait time at a new touchless border for eligible, low-risk passengers.

“2020 highlighted the difficult challenge for governments to verify identity remotely and deliver e-services quickly”, stated Gordon Wilson, WorldReach President and CEO, “Fortunately, WorldReach had already been in production in many high identity assurance programs, and testing for seamless travel pilots globally. This meant no downtime in existing services, and an ability to scale quickly for real-world innovative initiatives to support economic recovery in multiple industries such as travel.  Despite COVID-19, we hit the ground running, and I’m so very proud of the entire WorldReach team.” 

“In 2021, we see even more applications for remote identity and document verification across markets especially applied to the urgent need for digital identity in all aspects of our lives”.

WorldReach profiled in Juniper Research Digital Identity Report 2020-2025

WorldReach enables highly trusted digital services by verifying you are who you say you are.

December 1, 2020 | Source: WorldReach

(OTTAWA) – WorldReach Software, a leader in the remote identity and digital ID document verification today announced its inclusion in the Juniper Research DIGITAL IDENTITY: TECHNOLOGY EVOLUTION, REGULATORY LANDSCAPE & FORECASTS 2020-2025 Report. WorldReach is among fourteen international identity vendors profiled by Juniper on the leader board.

Juniper Research is a highly regarded stable of UK researchers specializing in the identification and appraisal of new high growth market sectors within the digital ecosystem. In the report, WorldReach is categorized as a Segment Focused Leading Challenger in the Digital Identity market.

According to Juniper, “WorldReach is in a strong position in the verifiable credential space. Its focus in this area is swiftly finding use cases to go after, and win, as consumer/citizen verification takes a central seat at the identity table. This is being evidenced by WorldReach’s involvement in the UK government’s EU national immigration status checks [UK Home Office EU Settlement Scheme] and as part of the new ‘Digital Travel Credentials’ (DTC) standards.

WorldReach’s position is strong, as border checks are becoming part of the digital transformation of governments and airports. WorldReach, as a company, is well placed to either take part as a point solution, or be woven into the wider ecosystems that handle travellers and other government IDs.”

Shelley Bryen, Director of Marketing, is quoted in the Market Trends Affecting Digital Identity section, stating, ‘‘Digital identity will need to focus first on trusted foundational anchors (‘government-issued’) identity documents, like ePassports (supplemented by the…internationally accepted ‘digital travel credential’), in order to succeed beyond borders and be adopted broadly. If it is not accepted as valid beyond one use case, is it really a digital ID?’’

Juniper Research noted that identity networks are comprised of a number of different elements, including governments, biometric vendors, digital identity app providers, banks, mobile network operators and many others. Digital identity and identity networks are all about forming collaborative ecosystems and alliances who can deliver on the complex requirements involved. Only when this approach is taken, will digital identity meet its potential to transform the way identity is used, managed and created in society.

For WorldReach, this speaks to the importance of building strategic partnerships with best of breed technologies and focusing on new, innovative processes informed by decades of experience deploying real-world Government to Citizen digital services. We are intimately familiar with the international technical standards for secure travel documents, based around ICAO Document 9303 and new Digital Travel Credential (DTC) standard. WorldReach staff are active participants in standards setting bodies and best practices for safe and seamless borders (WTTC, IATA, IBMATA, Future Borders Coalition), digital identity (DIACC), device security (FIDO Alliance) and biometrics (Biometrics Institute).           

“We are thrilled by our inclusion in this important, independently researched and highly respected Industry Report,” added CEO Gordon Wilson. “From our view, Juniper Research have provided a clear look at the future of Digital Identity, the challenges ahead and highlighted some pivotal, very successful digital identity verification case studies, including our role in the UK Home Office’s EU Settlement Scheme.”

WorldReach clients benefit from the Know Your Traveller™ (KYT) platform that combines innovative processes with the power of smartphones to read a passport chip, or similarly equipped e-citizen ID card  (via NFC) with the latest in facial recognition technology. This includes an instant facial match between selfie and verified ePassport, and a genuine presence test to prevent spoofing, providing the basis for a high identity assurance level.
