What we do

The owner of the data consents to the integration of data points from multiple sources via secure open API’s and secondly the sharing of information which enables our platform to automate mundane and boring processes, while facilitating flow in the ever-growing continuous exchange of data. Only the owner of the personal data has the tools and technology to share their data with the chosen partners data points, whilst at the same time the owner of the personal data has a single view of the data specific partners has of them.
