Subtitle: asknet Verify solves online retailers need to quickly authenticate
student status before closing the sale 


Karlsruhe (euro adhoc) - November 8, 2012 - asknet, a leading provider of
eCommerce solutions for software publishers, today announced that online
retailers can now check a student's eligibility for academic discounts using its
on-demand service, asknet Verify.  The service, which can be connected to
existing online shops via a standard interface, will help expedite sales for
products including software, computers, insurance, mobile phone contracts, or
tickets for local and long distance travel. The authentication service will be
available at the start of 2013.

Many companies offer products to students at discounted rates. But unlike brick
and mortar storefronts, it is not a simple process for Internet retailers to
examine documentation to authorize student discounts. asknet's Verify solution
addresses this issue by offering an online verification platform for the online
retailer.   

Verify offers two verification methods for retailers. Real-time verification is
available using a student's digital identity. When this is not an option, 
asknet's Verify can complete the query validating an uploaded student ID
manually.   

The quick verification process works with all types of ID formats and will be
available in more than 10 languages to serve the most important markets in
Europe, the USA and Asia. With its unique combination of digital and non-digital
verification methods, asknet's Verify enables a nearly 100%-verification rate.
