Veratad Technologies CEO Named 2021 NJBIZ Award Honoree
John E. Ahrens, CEO of Veratad Technologies, a global provider of age and identity verification solutions, has been named a 2021 NJBIZ Digi-Tech Innovators Award honoree.
The Digi-Tech Innovators Awards are an annual event held by NJBIZ to recognize members of the New Jersey business community who have demonstrated excellence in technology leadership. This year’s group of honorees includes executives who represent a variety of industries, including real estate, healthcare and technology, and who have introduced significant advances in the technological and digital space at their organizations.
Ahrens and other award recipients were honored in a virtual awards presentation which took place on April 22, 2021. They are also featured in an event publication inserted in the print issue of NJBIZ’s weekly newspaper.
“I am humbled to be included in the 2021 NJBIZ Digi-Tech Innovators group of honorees and to be recognized along with so many other outstanding business leaders,” says John E. Ahrens, CEO, Veratad Technologies, LLC. “My favorite part of working in New Jersey for the past 40 years has been the amazing variety of places to experience and the business opportunities afforded in the tri-state area. Veratad is proud to call New Jersey our home base of operations.”
Ahrens’s interest in the world of technology and online transactions led him to co-found Veratad Technologies in 2006, when he and his partners saw an opportunity to create new digital solutions for validating personal age and identity information, which was largely unheard of at the time.
Veratad is a world-class provider of identity and age verification solutions designed to verify an individual’s identity and/or age while protecting sensitive personal data and promoting a high level of consumer privacy. These solutions are offered through Veratad’s IDResponse® suite of cloud-based technologies and can be deployed as stand-alone or in combination through a single API format, allowing businesses maximum flexibility to use the verification tools in a way that best meets their needs.
Veratad’s innovation comes from the wealth of expertise that Ahrens and his team possess after 15 years of experience as a pioneer in the industry. Veratad enhances standard verification methods to work with more data sources, improve data matching and create more robust tools that can be combined to provide customizable, seamless solutions and foster trust between businesses and customers.
Under Ahrens’s leadership, Veratad’s growth is focused on seeking new partnerships in financial services, as well as exploring the online healthcare and education verticals, where Ahrens believes there is great potential for the use of verification solutions to follow compliance processes and prevent fraud in patient and student records.
