DirectID has today announced it has been nominated as a finalist in the Credit Strategy Awards 2020. 

DirectID has recently been nominated for a raft of awards in recent times, including the FDATA Awards, the Credit & Collections Awards, and the Credit & Collections Technology Awards. 

The nomination comes as DirectID announced that it had succeeded in doubling turnover since the pandemic struck in March, and has recently begun hiring for a number of new internal positions to capitalise on the growth of the company. 

James Varga, CEO of DirectID said: 

We are delighted, to once again be at the forefront of Open Banking, with this new award nomination. Through 2019 we were nominated for a number of awards, culminating in a win in the FS tech Awards for our work on DirectID Insights.  

While 2020 has proven to be a very challenging year, it is one in which we have seen companies adapt to, and in many cases, begin embracing new digital technologies. Bank data is at the very heart of this, and the benefits it brings to both businesses and consumers is massive. As a result, we are confident that we’ll see many more companies look to benefit from Open Banking and bank data. 

I’m very much looking forward to these awards. The competition in the category is of the highest order and we’re delighted to be among them. My very best wishes and congratulations go out to all the award finalists.

The awards will take place, virtually, on the 5th November 2020.
