SuperCom wins $4M passport and visa services contract

SuperCom has won a $4 million contract to provide various core elements of its flexible passport and visa solutions to an unnamed national government customer in Africa.

Built around SuperCom’s Magna platform, this deployment will allow for quick expansion of additional eGov modules and potential increases to the original contract size. The majority of the value of the contract is expected to be recognized over the next two years.

“This particular customer has been with SuperCom for more than a decade, has renewed with us several times, and now granted us a new contract resembling growth in our relationship,” commented Arie Trabelsi, CEO of SuperCom. “We will look to enrich this mutually productive relationship as well as grow our other existing e-Gov relationships as they present significant opportunities for expansion.”

Just last week South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs (DHA) confirmed that the first phase of an electronic visa system will be piloted by the end of March 2019, making it easier for tourists to enter the country.
