MorphoTrust to provide fingerprint enrollment platform at 55 new centers

May 8, 2015 - 

The Department of Public Safety will soon expand the network of its Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) by adding 55 new enrollment facilities – specifically in rural areas — to its current 93 locations where MorphoTrust USA (Safran) will provide secure and convenient fingerprint-based background checks.

Texas awarded IdentoGO Centers by the contract to MorphoTrust, making it the first state to implement MorphoTrust’s new commercial enrollment platform.

Many civilian applicants can now benefit from increased access as well as the improved performance and capabilities offered by MorphoTrust’s commercial enrollment platform.

This includes those individuals seeking licensure, employment and volunteer opportunities in Texas at agencies including the Board of Nursing, the Department of Family and Protective Services and the Texas Education Agency, among others.

MorphoTrust’s commercial enrollment platform also allows applicants to easily apply for different state programs from a single location.

“We are excited to partner with Texas as we expand the enrollment locations required to serve more than 800,000 Texans each year, particularly those in rural areas who will now have greater access,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Our enrollment services and technology platform offer security, accuracy, reliability and convenience. We look forward to rolling out the new enrollment centers throughout Texas in support of its programs.”

MorphoTrust’s commercial enrollment platform played an integral role in the successful delivery of the Universal Enrollment Services (UES) for the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

The firm’s enrollment services have already benefited millions of Americans through various state and federal programs, such as TSA Precheck and others.

Previously reported, MorphoTrust USA (Safran) recently announced that over one million people are now enrolled in the Transportation Security Administration PreCheck program for which it is the sole enrollment services provider.
