Yana Krimpe, the founder and CEO of Estonian – Azerbaijani IT company B.EST Solutions introduces Azerbaijani mobile ID´s technical solutions created by Estonian IT companies. According to Krimpe the Azerbaijani mobile ID´s success story is the best example how two countries have created the most innovative product based on their best practices. „We followed Estonia´s example but took into account local needs. While in Estonia, every mobile operator has created their own mobile ID, Azerbaijan has one centrally operated system and operators act as mediators. As a result, Estonia decided to reform its mobile ID system and make it easily manageable,“ Krimpe said.

Krimpe´s company B.EST Solutions has operated in Azerbaijan for five years. She considers Azerbaijani business environment promising for innovation and technology. „E-services create favorable environment for transparency, help to avoid corruption, and make the society better.“
