Zetes provides ABIS services to Guinea

May 31, 2013 - 

The Independent National Electoral Commission of the Republic of Guinea has chosen Zetes to perform the deduplication of biometric data from its voter registry for the country’s election set to take place this summer.

According to the company, this project includes centralized data consolidation, including back-up systems as well as the verification of print and facial biometric data using an ABIS. Biometric data in the registry includes voter fingerprints and digital photograph.

“Biometry and the associated deduplication services are critical elements in establishing the electoral rolls when organising elections,” Alain Wirtz, CEO of Zetes said. “Zetes has internationally-recognised expertise in this field and we are delighted to use it in our collaboration with the Guinean authorities.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, the Société nationale d’édition de documents administratifs et d’identification du Sénégal (SNEDAI) has awarded European system integrator Zetes a contract to produce the Senegalese biometric visa.
