Keesing offers free biometric digital ID services, Veridos sees eGovernment gains
Keesing Technologies is offering free use of its biometric digital identity verification technology and databases for essential organizations in need of identity proofing as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has announced.
The company gives examples such as universities moving exams online, and healthcare, logistics, law enforcement and other organizations that must now remotely identify, screen, and provide services to staff, customers and visitors among the kind of applications it is looking to help with. Keesing offers to integrate identity verification solutions from its AuthenticScan product suite and set up procedures for remote screening and verification. AuthentiScan combines ID verification technology and biometrics.
“We are determined to help and relief any of these organisations in the fight against the virus by making their screening and verification processes as smooth and reliable as possible ensuring safe work environments and protection against fraud”, says Mike Krechting, managing director of Keesing Technologies. “Whether it comes to the screening of the many volunteers and temporary workers in healthcare, day-care, law enforcement or logistics, or businesses that suddenly need to deal with huge amounts of customers that they need to onboard, Keesing is committed to help. We want to be there for them to improve the process and relieve the burden”.
Interested organizations are invited to apply through an online form on the company website.
Responses to restrictions imposed by COVID-19 have sparked explorations of methods for integrating government services with digital platforms, advancing the eGovernment sector, Veridos writes meanwhile.
The company touts eGov services for the delivery of medical services through video appointments, online learning, and expired document renewal as applications benefiting people in lockdowns, and suggests digitalization of official documents can support touchless authentication for in-person interactions.
“The global Corona crisis clearly shows the importance of digital infrastructures. This is particularly true for advances within the eGovernment sector. Now is the time for governments to think about digitalizing services. Citizens and governments can greatly benefit from a secure and technologically advanced digital ecosystem. This is one of Veridos’ priorities and we continue, as always, to be a trustworthy partner for governments around the world”, says Andreas Räschmeier, CEO of Veridos.
