In late September, we were excited to announce our partnership with the Network of Giving. Network of Giving specializes in delivering technology solutions to support important causes and communities around the world. NOG is a value added software and IP tool that empowers billions of caring consumers purchasing goods and services digitally which can benefit local organizations and causes seamlessly.
Recently, Chris Lamoureux, COO of Veriday Inc., elaborated more on this partnership and what it means in terms of future projects, innovation, and what this means to all the charities involved.
What is the extent of the relationship between Veriday and the Network of Giving? What will you be doing together as partners?
Chris: Changing the world is not easy, sometimes it takes a lot of time; days, weeks, months, years, sometimes decades. Although, with clear focus, a goal and vision in mind, changes can happen and make a positive influence on the world. We’ve been working with Trusted Innovators for several years now to help them change the world through one transaction at a time. The Network of Giving harnesses the power of everyday digital transactions, supports important causes, and helps communities around the world become more prosperous and resilient, particularly local communities.
What solution will we be creating together? What problem does it solve for the customers?
Chris: Through pioneering innovations, technology, existing financial structures, and business processes, the Network of Giving has found ways to link consumers, local merchants, charitable and community organizations, banks, payment networks, and other financial organizations into a dynamic ecosystem to create an entirely new way of supporting digital charitable giving. We at Veriday believe that this is an enormous untapped potential to change the world, and we are committed and focused on supporting Trusted Innovators in their activities.
What are the benefits that the customers will see from the partnership?
We’ve been supporting Trusted Innovators in the ground-breaking technology innovation area using leading-edge approaches and modernized thinking. It allows us to create a technology solution that can plug and play into the most complex financial services systems in the world. Taking the complexity of the service systems and delivering it simply into a marketplace in which any consumer can use the solution; to take a simple banking transaction, or a simple purchase, and direct that at a merchant while part of the proceeds go to support a charity of their choice.
From your perspective, what is special or innovative about the partnership?
What’s innovative and interesting about this partnership and what we’re trying to do is that we are taking something simple and something that is done every day, and using it as a catalyst for change to fuel and accomplish something bigger. Innovative, yet complex. Simple and elegant.
