At Nect we are proud of the quality of our products, especially the ease of use of our apps! Do not be fooled: Below the easily accessible user experience is a complex system that fulfills various security, compliance, and technological requirements. 

Our Android and iOS apps are the main interaction point for our users. We also provide a lot of tools for internal use and for our customers to interact with us. At the core of our value chain is a Machine learning system, that uses state of the art methods to establish face and age recognition as well as many more methods of this highly interesting field. These services are orchestrated by our service-oriented backend system. All this runs on our hardware on a multi-datacenter kubernetes cluster
