Serve integrates fingerprint biometrics to secure sensitive deliveries
On the heels of its facial biometrics integration, logistics company Serve has integrated its fingerprint recognition technology with its blockchain-based platform for supply chain management and proof of delivery.
As with facial biometrics, Serve sees fingerprint authentication as a way to secure deliveries of pharmaceuticals and other sensitive consumer goods without sacrificing efficiency. Serve integrated biometric facial authentication with the platform earlier this month.
“Being involved in the logistics space for over 20 years, the current faults in last-mile logistics have become increasingly apparent,” says Serve CEO Shahan Ohanessian. “With the integration of fingerprint recognition technology, Serve increases the security of order fulfillment while also increasing positive business-to-consumer relationships.”
Serve was founded last year, based on open-source technology, to address logistics industry challenges including platform fees of up to 40 percent a lack of clear reputation and accountability systems. The integration of biometrics with the Serve platform creates a solid foundation for decentralized last-mile logistics promoting efficiency, transparency, and trust, according to the company.
The combination of blockchain and biometrics from Yoti was recently used in a demonstration of a property transfer system with greater assurance and speed.
