July 30, 2018 – Integrated global payments platform ZED Network today announced a strategic partnership agreement with IdentityMind Global™, Digital Identities You Can Trust, whereby ZED Network will use IdentityMind Global’s Version 2.0 platform to meet know your customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance requirements for ZED Network Money Transfer Operators (MTO) worldwide.
“We’re pleased to work with an innovative company like ZED Network that has created a comprehensive money transfer platform for global, small to medium-sized MTOs so that they can effectively compete against larger MTOs,” said Garrett Gafke, CEO, IdentityMind Global. “We have a successful track record of working with ‘breakthrough’ companies like ZED Network to help them grow rapidly and scale while remaining compliant.”
