Who are we?

We are a team of innovative and experienced IT security professionals, systems architects, web designers and software developers on a mission to make it secure and easy for individuals to access, share and authenticate their verified achievements online.

Over 65 institutions have issued 2 million documents to date and served 1.5 million students.

What have we done?

We built the world’s first solution to verify degree certificates, transcripts and European Diploma Supplement in 2005, operated at the University of Limerick. We developed Australia’s first digitally signed AHEGS, Testamur, and eTranscript for the Australian National University in 2010. We contributed to the development of data and security standards for the European Diploma Supplement and the UK Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR). In 2012, we were among the first signatories to the Groningen Declaration. In 2015, we integrated our new Digitary CORE platform with thousands of Universities in China and the United States.

How do we operate?

We are a practical, hard-working team. We deliver technology that is simple to implement, use and manage, and that offers tangible return on investment to our customers. We use our knowledge and experience to provide quality software and services and to continuously improve to the benefit of our customers and users. We strive to maintain an in-depth knowledge of Higher Education to be able to work as an effective partner to our customer institutions and the Higher Education sector as a whole.
