IPification and Meridianbet Introduce Seamless mKYC for MTEL Subscribers

Having partnered with MTEL, IPification and Meridianbet are expanding support of the seamless mKYC solution to also include MTEL subscribers. The Meridianbet mobile and web app can now verify their phone numbers and automatically fill the registration form with their data within seconds thereby significantly improving the security and user experience of user sign ups.

A major telecom operator in Montenegro, MTEL has been on a mission of consistently innovating its operations and improving its services for over 15 years. As a user-centric company, they strive to always improve the digital experience of their users without ever sacrificing security.

Meridianbet was the first betting shop in the region to implement mKYC, now further expanding the support of the superior identity verification solution in partnership with MTEL and IPification. With this move, Meridianbet is delivering on its promise of providing an outstanding player experience while adhering to the world’s safest standards.

“It is a great pleasure to be among the first companies in the branch to offer its users this way of registration and access to the site. We are beyond grateful to our collaborators for the opportunity to provide maximum security, and give our users the easiest, fastest and most efficient access to the offer of our website.”

— Biljana Ilić, Meridianbet Marketing Manager

MTEL’s strategy, as the digital leader in Montenegro, is to always offer users the latest digital solutions, according to their needs, and with the aim of improved, faster, and more efficient use of its services.

“mKYC service guarantees our users a safe and very simple registration. In addition, by implementing the IPification solution, we made sure that users of the MTEL mobile network can use their mobile phones to authenticate in a simple and secure way, as well as approve transactions in a very efficient way. Besides the ease of use and improved user experience, the most important thing is the security of private data because it is a priority in all segments of MTEL’s business.”
