London, UK – 18th November 2022 – Yoti, the digital identity company, has today announced its partnership with THG Ingenuity, THG’s proprietary technology platform specialising in taking brands direct-to-consumers (“DTC”) globally.
Yoti will provide age verification solutions on the THG Ingenuity platform. This will allow THG clients to strengthen age checks and protect underage customers from buying age-restricted products.
Yoti’s age verification solutions include facial age estimation technology, a digital identity app and ID document verification. THG Ingenuity clients can choose which solution complements their business, and ensure they meet regulatory and local market requirements for selling age-restricted goods and services. Yoti’s solutions integrate into different touchpoints on a company’s eCommerce customer journey, for instance during the checkout process or during account creation.
THG Ingenuity provides eCommerce solutions to many of the world’s leading brands, with a unique end-to-end approach, encompassing eCommerce management services, global hosting, marketing technology, digital fraud detection, fulfilment & warehousing, creative content & brand services, translation services and delivery & courier management.
Through this partnership, THG Ingenuity will be able to broaden the range of solutions available to new and existing clients. THG Ingenuity’s platform powers the online direct-to-consumer growth of both THG’s own brands – such as Myprotein and LOOKFANTASTIC – and third-party clients such as Nestlé, Elemis and Homebase.
Vivek Ganotra, THG Ingenuity CEO, said: “We are proud to be partnering with age verification specialists, Yoti, to provide digital verification solutions to our clients. It further extends THG Ingenuity’s capabilities as a unique, end-to-end eCommerce platform, which has proven to be a huge competitive advantage, helping our brand partners scale, expand and grow their DTC offerings.”
