MorphoTrust introduces mobile service enrollment for travelers seeking TSA pre-check

November 25, 2014 - 

MorphoTrust USA (Safran) announced it has introduced a mobile enrollment service to support the Transportation Security Administration goal of increasing the number of travelers using the TSA pre-check program.

The company already provides enrollment services for travelers at more than 300 locations, including at major airports and at off-airport IdentoGO Centers by MorphoTrust.

MorphoTrust has teamed up with a range of organizations to offer the new mobile enrollment program, including universities, trade associations, sports teams and travel companies.

Time Warner, CBS Corporation, DirecTV, St. Jude Medical, Tufts University, The TJX Companies, NBA, and MLB Network are among the early customers that have used the mobile enrollment service to sign up employees and members for TSA pre-check.

“Since being selected by the TSA as the service provider for its Universal Enrollment Service, MorphoTrust has sought innovative ways to increase conveniences for Americans seeking identity-related services,” said Charles Carroll, MorphoTrust’s senior vice president for identity services. “We operate centers in 50 states and four U.S. territories and process more than three million people in them each year.

“Once TSA pre-check was established, we looked at the needs of employers and other organizations with frequent travelers and designed a mobile enrollment program for them. We are thrilled with the initial excitement about the service and looking to roll it out to many more organizations in the months ahead.”

As a part of the new program, MorphoTrust’s enrollment services group will partner with organizations to set up enrollment days, promote the many benefits with a full marketing campaign and signage for lobbies and other high-traffic areas, and provide a secure, custom branded web portal to pre-enroll individuals and schedule onsite appointments.

On enrollment days, trained agents set up secure workstations in conference rooms or other common spaces to record applicant’s biographic data and fingerprints, which are then securely sent to the TSA for processing.

Applicants or employers can pay a TSA-enforced $85 application fee for a five-year enrollment. Once approved, travelers receive a Known Traveler Number, which is printed on their boarding passes and allows them to use TSA pre-check lines.
