September 2007 by Marc Jacob
Blyk, the youth-focused MVNO formed with Orange, has deployed GB’s ID3 solution for customer authentication to protect against ID theft and ensure customer data is accurate for advertiser clients.
As the first ad-funded mobile network in Europe, Blyk has paid extensive attention to its customer authentication process to ensure best user experience and quality of its member data to advertisers.
Working with GB, Blyk is able to maximise the number of new customers they can sign up by offering an instant ID verification process, powered by GB’s ID3 technology. The seamless and totally unobtrusive verification process ensures that Blyk customers are fully and uniquely identified, providing advertisers with access to an ever growing pool of potential customers.
