Vision-Box Center of Excellence in Miami to foster innovation in travel and identity management
Vision-Box has opened a Center of Excellence in Miami as both its main operations hub for the region and to foster innovation in seamless travel and identity management in the American continent.
The Miami Center of Excellence connects the Aruba Centre of Innovation, founded in partnership with Aruba Airport Authority, as well as the newly announced Center of Competences established out of Carrasco Airport in Uruguay in partnership with Corporación América.
“In essence, we’re creating an Operation Center to locally serve our customers in both North and South America, and to guarantee the highest level of satisfaction and coverage of our solutions on the ground,” explained CEO Miguel Leitmann. “It also aims at establishing technological blueprints and value-creation frameworks at the benefit of successful digital transformation programs in the Americas.”
In addition to serving the existing customers in the region, the Center of Excellence will unveil regional research and development capabilities in various 4.0 digital transformation fields, including biometric technology, data privacy, identity orchestration platforms, collaborative data ecosystems, artificial intelligence, machine learning, passenger experience, among others.
“We understood that airports, ports, airlines, governments and many other critical actors in society seek to modernize processes related to managing people’s identities, flows and level of service,” added Leitmann. “The Americas Center of Excellence will provide the support and trust they need when planning their digital strategies, leveraging on Vision-Box global experience, and pioneering identity management ecosystems.”
In the announcement, Vision-Box noted it is actively looking to expand its team, particularly in R&D, engineering, program and project management, customer support and technical services. Headquarters in Lisbon, Vision-Box has facilities in Miami, Sydney, London, São Paulo, Dubai, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Delhi.
