Elenium, Idemia bring biometrics to AWS Competency programs for travel and disaster response
Elenium Automation is among the partners recognized for the new AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency announced at the company’s AWS re:Invent, providing a testament to Elenium’s experience with biometric and self-service airport technologies, according to the announcement.
The AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency is intended to help the tech giant’s customers find highly specialized AWS Partners.
“Elenium Automation is proud to be one of the first AWS Partners to achieve AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency status,” says Aaron Hornlimann, Elenium Automation CEO. “In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Elenium leveraged Amazon Web Services technologies and integrated them into self-service devices to be used within the airport and public environments. We have turned our focus to using our advanced self-service technology to help make the world safer by making various customer-facing devices touchless and evolving them into health screening points using contactless vital sign detection.”
Self-service and automation technologies developed by Elenium can reduce passenger congestion by up to 60 percent, the company says.
Idemia joins extended PSDR program
AWS is also expanding its Public Safety & Disaster Response (PSDR) Competency to include Idemia and other new partners, to give its customers greater choice among solutions for emergency and disaster preparation, response and recovery.
Idemia will provide solutions for core public safety operations including identity enrollment services and secure biometrics-backed digital and physical identity credentials.
The all-in-one background check solution from Idemia can be used for enrollment services with contactless fingerprinting, simplified inter-agency processes, and the Idemia Universal Enrollment Platform as a unified and scalable backend. The company’s Mobile ID solution provides authentication against state DMV records, secure access to state agency services, and operational efficiencies for issuing authorities, according to the announcement.
