Vision-Box and Biometric Solutions have been awarded a four-year contract from the Danish government for biometric-based solutions and components for both enrollment and automated border control.
Under the terms of the deal, which commenced in February 2014, the companies will provide a biometric solution and related services to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, along with other Danish ministries.
The solution will enable Danish government to improve processes related to citizen’s electronic identity, as well as help fulfill several ministries’ missions for Danish citizen and foreigners’ enrollment for passport, visa and residence permits.
“We look forward to working with the Danish government, and our partner Biometric Solutions, to provide the best citizen experience ever,” said Jean-François Lennon, director of global business development, sales and marketing at Vision-Box. “For that, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art technology, designed to offer more efficient and convenient services related to electronic identity.”
The Danish government will benefit from Vision-Box’s portfolio of identity management solutions, which includes the vb e-pass portable, a portable biographic and biometric enrollment and verification solution.
The all-in-one unit gathers resident’s face and fingerprint biometric data and his or her digital signature.
The vb e-pass’ versatility and portable size allow for increased mobility in citizen identification and enrollment, as well as enhanced security checks across the nation.
Biometric Solutions will provide its existing enrollment portfolio, which is already being deployed at Danish embassies and municipalities to enroll citizens while adhering to government rules and regulations.
“We are very happy that our collaboration with Vision-Box will help government institutions raise their service level for citizens around the world, while at the same time strengthening the security measures protecting citizens’ personal data,” said Alex Ramskov Johannsen, CEO of Biometric Solutions.
