|FundsV Named Finalist in Innovation Awards
GoAbroad has named the FundsV Working Group as one of five worldwide finalists in their Innovative Use of Technology competition: USjournal.com/lab/InnovationAward.pdf
FundsV provides a secure and reliable way of empowering prospective students and their sponsors to point their banking data, which in many cases already exists in the cloud, to their authorized host in order to prove financial capacity. From a technical perspective, FundsV is really an incremental advancement designed as an alternative to the current process for verifying funds -- which is mostly paper-based and cumbersome, with considerable potential for fraud. FundsV minimizes the opportunity to manipulate financial documents, while the host retains full responsibility in deciding how to use the robust set of data provided by FundsV.
