CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2016 – Aura Innovative Technology is pleased to announce its partnership with BadgeCert Inc., a leader in digital credentialing and professional recognition, for the delivery, management, and verification of digital badges. The partnership allows users of the Aura eStore to immediately display a secure and verifiable digital badge across professional and social platforms, while giving issuing organizations market and brand exposure in social networks.
“We are excited to offer digital badge services through our new partnership with BadgeCert,” said James Chen, CEO of Aura Innovative Technology. “Digital badges have gained significant traction in the credentialing industry and we have found that BadgeCert’s reliable security and verification capabilities will protect the integrity of our customers’ credentials.”
This integration will prove to be successful for both organizations. While the Aura eStore will have access to the online badges, BadgeCert will receive Aura’s “seamless administrative experience”, which has become a major trait of the company.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Aura eStore, as they have consistently exceeded their clients’ expectations with respect to high quality customer service and technology innovation,” says Ginger Malin, Ph.D., Founder and EVP of Business Development at BadgeCert. “This partnership will provide organizations with a seamless administrative experience, while also delivering significant value to certificants, as they can now digitally share their verified credentials across the web.”
In today’s digital world, professionals want the option to share their credentials online. Digital badges are used in professional and social networking environments to recognize achievements and establish credibility in real time.
BadgeCert digital badges are third-party verifiable icons that are packed with information or “metadata” about the issuing organization, as well as when and how the credential was earned, and when it will expire. They can represent accomplishments such as knowledge competency, attendance, participation, or the completion of a professional credential.
An organization will work directly with the Aura eStore to create a unique digital badge for each of its credentials. As credentials are earned, Aura works through BadgeCert’s technology to award the verified credential so that an earner may begin securely sharing the badge in social networks and with individuals to gain recognition for their accomplishment.
The Aura eStore will begin offering digital badge services immediately.
BadgeCert’s enterprise-class hosted software platform enables organizations to recognize their stakeholders’ accomplishments with dynamic digital badges. BadgeCert’s 100% verifiable badges are embedded with qualifying information that details the nature of an earner’s accomplishment and once received, earners can share them with others (particularly employers, customers or colleagues) by putting them directly on their social media profiles, corporate databases, resumes or email signatures.
