The challenge faced by Bangor University

“Prior to adopting Advanced Secure’s certification platform, we did not have our own degree awarding powers. Our degrees were being awarded by the University of Wales, and so our awards data was being forwarded to them to record and produce award documents.

As a result, the University didn’t have control over the certification process which caused challenges around security, internal process efficiency and the ability to improve our student and graduate experience.”

Secure certification technologies used by Bangor University

  • Digital Certificates – a holistic secure certification platform for the print & publish of degree documents.
  • Blockchain Paper  – creates an unrivaled level of document security to protect our degree documents.

What has been Bangor University’s experience working with us?

“An excellent overall experience. We have been working with Advanced Secure Technologies since 2009 and can highly recommend their secure certificates and software solutions.

We are particularly impressed by the level of customer service and support that the team at Advanced Secure Technologies has and continues to deliver. Being kept informed of the newest technologies available to support our secure document production has meant that we can remain ahead of challenges faced by traditional systems and continue to provide the best certification experiences to our students and graduates.”
