SINGAPORE — 21 February 2019. With the recent “hype” of fake credentials and forging of transcripts in order to get the ideal position at work, many human resource departments desired a method to quickly verify hundreds or sometimes thousands of credentials submissions. For those who went through the years of hardship to put on their graduation hats, it means safekeeping that piece of hard-earned certificate and transcript is a top priority when come to any house moving or relocation. Losing those Credentials also means a troublesome process of waiting and costly reprint.
This is what Edufied set out to solve, like a logistics last mile delivery provider ensuring the package is safety & quickly delivered to its end users, For Edufied it’s to provide a quick and secured verification method via blockchain technology for the human resource department, while for individuals, they can have a peace of mind when their credentials are safely kept in their personalised Training and Academic Passport, always ready to be shared securely with a click of a few buttons.
Since the inception of the idea in March 2018, Edufied went from a concept to product-ready with 50,000 committed users within 10 months. Their clients include Financial Planning Association of Singapore (FPAS, A Global Assembly of Financial Planning Bodies), My Working Title ( A Career Design Company), Certified Counter Terrorism Practitioner (CCTP, A Professional Development Institute Specialize in the Area of Counter Terrorism), etc.
CEO and Founder of Edufied, Ryan SOH speaking from EduTech Philippines 2019, “We are delighted that Edufied fits into the current Academic, Training and Business needs for the various industries. Through our blockchain system, our aim is to assist the issuers in saving both time and money when it comes to issuance and verification process.
For individuals, they can easily store and share their credentials without the worries about losing them.
With our initial implementation focusing only in Singapore, we are very delighted to have numerous enquiries during this EduTech Philippines event with a few institutions in talk with us about implementing Edufied in the next few months. The sharing session I had on 18 February 2019, Monday with Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Education Committee ( PCCI EduCom ) for 30 plus institutions turned out to be an eye opener for many as they start to understand the actual use case of Blockchain in Education.
Staying focus purely on Blockchain Technology has bear fruits over the past months, we will see more organizations leveraging on Blockchain technology in different business use cases. Edufied is glad that we are one of the first movers in the industry.”
With a clear expansion plan in each country, Edufied signed a MOU on 31 January 2019 with Mastereign Enrichment Group, a leading Enrichment Provider in Singapore on rolling out Edufied system throughout the K12 sector.
“With Mastereign’s extensive network in the Singapore Education system and the partnership with Edufied, students can start collating their recognition at a young age. This non-academic recognition will stay with them when they are workforce ready and provide a true trace of growth through skills and interest based training.
Our aim is to be able to reach out to the 450,000 kids and youths within the next 36 months.” said Terry LIM, Managing Director of Mastereign Enrichment Group,
As Blockchain technology advances and being gradually adopted, Edufied will be the one-stop credential storage system, solving the headaches of paper-based issued certificates and multiple PDF storage challenges. The positioning of the Last Mile Delivery in Education aims to provide conveniences to both issuers and individuals.
