Ipsidy facial biometrics to secure Skypatrol fleet management system in Latin America
Ipsidy and fleet management software provider Skypatrol have formed a partnership to offer an integrated cost-control and expense management tool with facial recognition to trucking operators and logistics companies in Latin America.
SkyGuru combines Skypatrol’s GPS technology and Ipsidy’s Transact digital issuance platform and face biometrics to provide mobile wallets and virtual payment cards for fleet drivers. Fleet operators can create accounts for drivers, place funds in them, enroll gas stations and other merchants, and monitor activity in real-time, according to the announcement. Participating merchants download Ipsidy’s mobile point-of-sale application, rather than installing new hardware, and can then authenticate the driver with facial verification.
“Ipsidy is pleased to partner with Skypatrol to launch this innovative fleet-management solution throughout the Latin American market,” says Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy. “The combination of Ipsidy’s Transact platform and our biometric identity authentication technology, with Skypatrol’s broadly adopted GPS solutions, will, we believe, create a powerful offering providing the high level of transaction security, control and certainty that is required to operate in the criticallogistics sector.”
Skypatrol will offer SkyGuru as part of its fleet-management solution to its customers in Latin America and the Caribbean, who operate more than a million vehicles, combined.
