Company and domain names can now be registered as one, making it easier for companies looking to manage credit risk to access pbVerify’s full suite of services.
A recent partnership between three South African agencies, allowing company and domain names to be registered together, has streamlined the process of registering local companies and, in turn, of accessing pbVerify’s suite of verification products.
Earlier this month it was announced that the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission (CIPC), the ZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA) and the ZA Central Registry NPC (ZACR) had collaborated to make it possible for new companies to register with the commission and claim a parallel co.za domain name at the same time.
The move will not only give new companies greater control over their intellectual property, it also significantly simplifies the process of acquiring unique online credentials – a requirement for access to many professional services, including pbVerify’s credit vetting products.
Daily online news portal, SME South Africa, cites ZACR CEO Lucky Masilela as saying the three-party agreement enables new enterprises to protect their fledgling online identities. “This innovative offering seamlessly combines the offline and online worlds in a way that provides total convenience and protection for start-ups.”
Credit management services
pbVerify is South Africa’s leading data bureau, offering small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and corporates all the information needed in order to make informed, intelligent business decisions to the end of mitigating credit risk.
The easiest way to verify businesses, people and property in South Africa, pbVerify’s suite of credit management services includes business credit checks, CIPC business and director searches, Home Affairs ID verification, SARS advanced VAT verification and bank account verification – among others.
Minimum requirements for companies seeking full access to pbVerify’s services are: a business email address; a business landline number and valid business registration details pertaining to an active business.
Now, thanks to the CIPC, ZADNA and ZACR partnership, companies can quickly and painlessly ensure they are able to tick all the above boxes.
Masilela describes the partnership as a “a fantastic example of domain name space pioneering coupled with out-the-box thinking in the area of public-private partnerships” and says the organisation is looking to launch further services for new enterprises, start-ups and other commercial users in future.Masilela describes the partnership as a “a fantastic example of domain name space pioneering coupled with out-the-box thinking in the area of public-private partnerships” and says the organisation is looking to launch further services for new enterprises, start-ups and other commercial users in future.
