LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) March 28, 2018
FaceTec and Turbi have partnered to deliver a secure and frictionless carsharing experience to one of the world’s most dynamic markets. Turbi, a fast-growing, highly-regarded carsharing service headquartered in Sao Paulo, has integrated ZoOm 3D Face Login by FaceTec - the most secure mobile login solution available - into their popular mobile app that already boasts more than 100,000 downloads. With ZoOm, Turbi customers use their faces to conveniently unlock the door of an available car. And through a simple selfie-style interface, unlocking the car happens in just one-to-two seconds.
In the rapidly developing global gig economy, where long-term economic relationships are being replaced with short-term “gigs”, car sharing (vs. car ownership) is becoming a very popular option. While personal mobility is as important as ever, actually owning a car looks increasingly like it’s not. In major urban centers, the growth in ride-hailing, ride-sharing and car-sharing services is at the center of a significant shift in car ownership trends, reversing what until 2010 was showing steady increases in ownership levels. With this change in behavior comes both major advances in the consumer experience and new concerns for personal safety. ZoOm has be tasked with preventing unauthorized drivers from gaining access to the vehicles and was selected because it was by far the most secure face authentication solution Turbi tested.
“Turbi’s carsharing service is built on convenience, dependability, value and safety. To keep the experience safe from the start, we chose ZoOm to ensure only the right person has access to the right vehicle. We deployed our Turbi mobile app integrated with ZoOm in only short three weeks from our very first conversation with FaceTec. The unmatched security, speed, simplicity and ease of management allows us to focus on growing our business,” said Diego Lira, CEO of Turbi. “As we continue to add more cars and more customers, having a high level of security in place is a great comfort.”
According to Global Market Insights, Inc., the car sharing market is expected to deliver year-over-year growth from 2016 to 2024 of over 34%, with revenues projected to be over USD 16.5B.
Driven by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and more than simple facial recognition, FaceTec is at the forefront of the revolution in mobile 3D face authentication. Delivered to app developers in a small, elegant SDK, ZoOm can be integrated with just a few lines of code into any iOS or Android app providing highly-secure app access to banking, insurance, healthcare and other highly sensitive or confidential personal account data, all without compromising convenience. ZoOm uniquely verifies the authorized driver by actually matching the driver’s image, checking for three-dimensionality (verifying it’s not a photo or video spoof), and making sure the authorized driver is actually present in person when requesting access to the vehicle.
“We are excited to work with Turbi, one of the most dynamic companies in one of the fastest-growing industry sectors in Brazil,” said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. “The fantastic service they provide - and the robust growth they’re experiencing - underscores the need for customer security without sacrificing convenience. ZoOm determines if a driver is the authorized user and that they are actually present, preventing spoofs. Because ZoOm is the most secure face login solution on the market, yet is still incredibly easy to use, makes it the perfect solution for Turbi and companies like them around the world.”
