Activity logs and cost recovery efforts are already transformed for emergency response organizations
TEXAS EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE - Merit Verified Identity Platform today launched the Verit Forms Engine (Merit VFE), the next evolution of the company’s custom formulation tool. Merit VFE is built on the Merit platform and simplifies the process of collecting information from people by using data from verified or credited digital credentials.
Merit VFE integrates seamlessly with the entire Merit verified identity ecosystem, bringing new efficiencies to organizations by pre-filling form fields with verified personal data, including receipts, licenses or other time tracking records. E.g:
- Registration forms and waivers can capture personal information from credentials and background checks which can then be used to confirm access eligibility through the Merit Check-in app.
- License and accreditation renewal forms can be filled in automatically with names, license numbers and expiration dates for simplified renewal processes.
- Event logging and logging processes can be shortened by entering data from membership or employment registers or other credentials.
Merit’s Verified Forms Engine brings verified data from receipts, licenses and other digital time tracking records into existing workflows, saving time for individuals and organizations with accurate data and faster processes.

“Merit is a platform to unlock the value of verified identity and I can’t think of a better measure of this value than the time this app will save individuals and organizations due to accurate data and accelerated processes,” said Merit COO Jacob Orrin . . “Initial feedback from the emergency response community has been overwhelmingly positive, with partners already implementing digital, secure and verified processes to send accurate daily activity logs, which contributes to faster cost recovery.”
FEMA ICS 214 activity logs are requested daily by many intervention agents and are traditionally hand-completed on paper, physically handed over to supervisors for review and approval, returned for error correction and collected for transcription and reimbursement. By setting up the 214 Merit VFE form and process, respondents and supervisors can complete, review, and submit their day-to-day work on any smartphone or computer, saving time, reducing errors, and speeding up refund processes.
“Merit did a remarkable job of providing the services of its staff at the crash site of the Surfside condominium, which helped ensure that only verified and approved people were on site and that all hours worked were properly accounted for. ”Said retired police sergeant Randy Rossman, who was tasked with documenting FEMA cost recovery documentation for the main law enforcement agency responsible for the collapse of the Surfside condominium. “An automated electronic cost recovery system is desperately needed in this space where there are valid concerns about data accuracy and lost time, and Merit has built a valuable tool and accompanying reporting suite.”
