Universities have set about increasing the number of courses offered, however, this has gone further, as due to the increase in counterfeit degrees, more and more companies are demanding to be able to verify university degrees.

This is why companies dedicated to the verification of these credentials have emerged, companies focused on the issuance of online degrees or credentials that are easy to share in order to facilitate the procedures and give them a certain guarantee for companies or business schools.

One of these companies is Credlya company that aims to facilitate the demonstration of skills and knowledge gained.
