GenKey updates its biometric registration solution

GenKey today announced a new release of Necto, its software designed for capturing biographic and biometric data of individuals in small to large-scale registrations.

This latest release builds on the high standards of previous releases through enhanced processing of ICAO compliant documents, enhanced local security and protection against the spoofing of data exchange with back-end servers, as well as the generation of very high-quality registration data even under challenging operating conditions. According to the announcement, Necto ensures high quality biometric capture on more than 95% of all registrations.

“We normally express the biometric registration quality as the average number of quality fingers per subject,” explains Alty van Luijt, executive director of research and development. “For a recent project in Africa, where Necto 2.0 was used as a registration solution, we measured an average of 9.6 fingers per subject, a number higher than we have ever seen.”

GenKey notes that this new release of Necto has incorporated all the company’s application development capabilities and on-the-field registration experience to arrive at a fully mature, field-tested biometric and biographic registration solution.

According to Hajo Birthelmer, chief software architect at GenKey, “The total design and development process of our Necto product was guided by our experience and field observations during the numerous projects we have rolled out over the past years. Necto is one of those products that you cannot design effectively from behind your desk; you really have to be on the ground and get your hands dirty.”

Besides its standard registration, verification and reporting modules, Necto has customized modules for biometric voter verification, election management, biometric member verification for healthcare, and other use cases.
