  • The Trust ID software is quick and easy to use and gives us assurance that the documents provided are authentic. The helpdesk support team are always on hand and happy to support with queries, and the time stamped report which is generated automatically is clear and easy to read and understand. I see it as an essential part of the recruitment and verification process for our medical staff.
