OZZ Technologies launches secure wallet

DUBAI, 21 days ago

OZZ Technologies, a global technology solutions company has announced the launch of the world’s first ultra-secure digital contact wallet - OZZ. 
Leveraging proprietary patent-pending technology, OZZ allows individuals to safely save, curate and share a comprehensive and password-protected repository of contact and identification information. 
“OZZ will revolutionise the way we, as a digitally-first society, connect with each other amidst the coronavirus pandemic,” commented Ahmed Wasfie, Founder and CEO of OZZ Technologies. 
“Contactless interactions are an integral part of the new normal, together with mounting consumer expectations with regards to speed, security and privacy,” explained Wasfie. He believes this shift makes “OZZ the definitive mode of connecting in everyday life; a simple, secure and seamless way to instantly and safely share information during an interaction.”
Said Wasfie: “We were greatly inspired by the Dubai Paperless Strategy championed by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum,” adding, “It motivated us to create a contactless solution with global appeal from right here in Dubai.” 
Originally conceived as a B2B product last year, Wasfie sought to expand the convenience and security of the OZZ value proposition to individual users.
“OZZ is your new business card and ID stash rolled into one,” explains Wasfie. In addition to saving essential contact information, OZZ allows users to source and store their profiles from more than 50 different channels spanning social media platforms - such as Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok and Twitter - to communication applications - such as FaceTime, Skype, WeChat and Whatsapp - to music applications, online professional portfolio links and much more. User information is securely stored on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
For enterprise clients, OZZ generates a significant savings of up to 70% on the ubiquitous annual business card spend, benefiting both the bottom line and the environment. As a white-label offering, OZZ offers enterprise clients custom-design options enabling increased brand awareness. 
Moreover, B2B customers can also avail of enterprise-level dashboards that allow designated personnel to track the volume and type of contact exchanges conducted by employees in key revenue-generating functions, such as sales and business development.
Manufactured in line with global best-in-class production standards, OZZ is scratch proof, waterproof and shockproof. Some of its innovative features include:
● State-of-the-art OzzSure Security Factor - Users can save contact and identification information and documents, each with multiple layers of password-protection and the option to hide selected files prior to sharing;
● Authentication and Verification - OZZ users can save important identification documents (drivers licence, passport, Emirates ID) in a single and easily navigable location on their smartphones, and in a fully verified format; and 
● Emergency Contact Sharing - OZZ allows users to input detailed information for an emergency contact - including name, phone number and location - which can be retrieved by a simple tap on the user’s phone in the event of an emergency.
“OZZ uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to ensure that any personal ID uploaded is an original and user-linked document,” said Wasfie.
The OZZ app - with selected features - can be downloaded for free with full functionality only available to purchasers of the OZZ tag. Users can choose between six different language settings including Arabic, Chinese, English, Dutch, Russian and Spanish with additional language options offered in the coming weeks. -- Tradearabia News Service
