At Truework we are hyper-focused on building products that enable businesses and consumers to regain control over how their sensitive information is shared online. Our product helps our customers to unlock productivity and save millions dollars annually by automating employment and income verifications. On the consumer side, we are giving employees unprecedented visibility into how their income information is shared between third parties such as banks, mortgage lenders and employers. We believe increasing data transparency and returning data controls to the consumer are two crucial steps toward improving the health and safety of the internet as we know it.
