IDDY Award 2009 goes to fun communications
fun communications GmbH is the winner of the IDDY (Identity Deployment of the Year) Award 2009, presented yesterday during the Digital ID World trade fair in Las Vegas.
WebCard Loyalty is a solution for issuing and managing virtual loyalty and bonus cards. The portal is based on the open standard "Information Card". This replaces the classic login process based on a user name and password with an innovative technology which enables Internet users to administer and securely share their digital identities. fun communications has enhanced this technology with the "loyalty and bonus card" aspect, and in doing so combines the benefits of user-centric identity management with a customer loyalty and bonus program in a unique way.
"Winners of the 2009 IDDY Award reflect the evolving identity landscape, where applications are leveraging a wide range of protocols and collaboration is the key to moving the global identity industry forward," said Brett McDowell, executive director, Kantara Initiative.
