The former managing director of Countrywide’s estate agency division has joined the board of a PropTech firm wanting to introduce facial recognition technology into the world of property.
Vince Corley left Countrywide in February this year and in October joined Nick Dunning and Associates as its head of sales and financial services - we reported the move here.
Now he is also a non-executive director at Credas, which manufactures an app which is using facial recognition software to speed up verification for the property industry.
The firm, which only started in May this year, specialises in ID checks, verification and security for different sectors. It believes its products can cut the time and cost it takes to verify more than 4,000 types of identification by using real-time facial recognition.
"Having someone with Vince's experience and knowledge is a great boost for us. His understanding of our product and the difference it can make to the property and lettings market is very validating and we can't wait to start working with him” says Credas chief executive Rhys David.
Vince Corley himself says: "The cutting-edge facial recognition technology Credas uses is amazing and the integration of this product into agents' systems will alleviate the administrative burden and time wasted for both agents and customers alike. It is a game changer in the market and I'm proud to help take the business to the next stage.”
