Eventus and Journey Partner to Accelerate Trusted Identity Solutions for Private and Personalized Interactions
Eventus Marketing Team
Award-winning digital identity solution based on an innovative network and platform approach securely confirms customer identity with 99.9999% accuracy in less than two seconds, reducing risk, lowering costs, and improving experiences exponentially
DENVER – June 25, 2020 – Eventus Solutions Group, a leading Customer Experience (CX) strategy, consulting, managed solutions and contact center technology company, today announced it is working with Journey to advance the verification of a customer identity using a “zero knowledge” network-based approach that is the first and only platform that solves for privacy, security, and customer experience simultaneously.
Eventus will be bringing Journey’s Trusted Identity Platform to the market in partnership with Journey, across all three lines of business (strategy and consulting, managed solutions, and technology innovations).
Journey eliminates the traditional tradeoffs companies face in customer authentication, confirming customer identity with 99.9999% accuracy in less than two seconds, enabling enterprises to interact and transact with their customers securely and simply.
The solution is architected to fundamentally solve the digital identity conundrum with a purpose-built highly secure network and a platform for enterprises to simultaneously solve for security, customer data privacy and an elegant customer experience.
“Journey’s platform makes it possible to accurately verify the identity of a customer and exchange private information in a safe manner. Not only is there a secure communications channel between the customer and the business, but personal data is only appropriately disseminated to the agents when absolutely required. Fraud from both the customer side and the agent side is avoided,” said Greg Weber, CTO, Eventus. “Their solution empowers consumers and differentiates the brands who make it possible to dramatically reduce the time it takes to get their questions answered and problems solved. Their software and AI capabilities fit perfectly with our ongoing efforts to leverage automation and innovation to more intelligently orchestrate CX for significantly improved outcomes, lower costs, and stronger compliance.”
“Our mission is to restore trust to every interaction between companies and their customers,” said Michael Frendo, PhD, and CTO of Journey. “We have an opportunity to rebuild trust eroded by the tension that exists between the desire to deliver a highly personalized and convenient experience, and the need to protect privacy and valuable data. Customer information should be a source of insights that illuminate customer service and make the customer’s journey easy and enjoyable, but until now we have not had a technology that can protect against adversaries, especially now that millions of employees and contact center agents are working from home. We are thrilled to partner with Eventus to bring our platform together with their offering to large enterprises seeking to differentiate their brands with intuitive, secure and intelligent interactions.”
Eventus has been working with Journey over the last few months as the company prepared to come out of stealth mode and make their offerings generally available.
Journey’s Trusted Identity Platform enables companies to conduct ultra-secure one-in-a-billion identity authentication in less than two seconds without ever directly accessing private information about a customer. Journey solves this challenge in a holistic way by enabling best-in-class identity solutions deployed from a platform that is orchestrated by an innovative patent-pending “zero-knowledge” network, which verifies information but never actually shows the personal data to an agent. The platform also works in concert with the existing identity, payment and transaction tools that companies have invested in, and it can be implemented in a matter of days to immediately transform customer interactions.
Journey’s fundamentally new approach has been proven to result in:
- 98% reduction in synthetic fraud, upending hacker economics
- Saving 30 – 120 seconds per call
- Saving at least $1 per call
- Increasing outbound right-party connect rates by up to 10x
- Enabling secure work from anywhere agents allowing flexible staffing models proven to increase retention rates
- Easy integration with existing identity, payment & transaction tools
- All-in savings on compliance, fraud, time, and operational efficiency can mean saving up to $25,000 per agent, per year.
Journey recently received two prestigious awards from Enterprise Connect in recognition of the company’s groundbreaking Trusted Identity Platform. The organization named Journey’s Trusted Identity Platform the winner of its Best of Enterprise Connect and Best Innovation in Customer Experience awards, which recognize major innovations that will have a significant impact on customer service and experience.

The news is filled with stories about contact centers forced to respond to Work From Home (WFH) models given the COVID-19 global pandemic, which leaves no region untouched – including North America, Europe, Asia, Central America, South America and other regions known for their on and off-shore contact center successes.
