VeriSol Team

The members of the VeriSol team bring together a powerful combination of technical expertise, industry knowledge, and business experience. Members of the team have extensive backgrounds in the insurance industry, auto liability insurance reporting, and in real-time verification with a company that has hundreds of thousands of businesses using its software for payment processing. That software was acquired by VeriFone, the global leader in secure electronic payments systems. In 2003, the team set up Verification Solutions, Inc. (VeriSol), to design, develop, and market real-time vehicle insurance verification software. The system design for VeriSol Vehicle Insurance Verification (VIV) is similar to payment processing. In both systems, authorized users make requests for verification through secure software that routes the requests, accesses real-time information in multiple databases, and then responds to the users.
