Through the third week of 2021, a number of commendations and awards have been given to biometrics and digital identity companies focusing on innovative solutions.
Elenium announced a commendation by Frost & Sullivan for its AI-powered Airport Passenger Self-service Automation Kiosks, while Experian was mentioned as one of the leaders in the current digital identity landscape in Juniper Research’s Digital Identity report.
In addition, Idemia was named as one of the ‘Best Companies to Work For in Asia’ by HR Asia on Wednesday.
Elenium receives commendation by Frost & Sullivan
Self-service automation technologies provider Elenium has received the 2020 Asia-Pacific Technology Innovation Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan on Tuesday.
The company won the award for its self-service touchless and vital sign detection technologies, and its AI and biometrics-enabled kiosks in particular.
Elenium’s facial recognition algorithms can identify passengers even if they are wearing masks, glasses, hats, or face visors, the company says.
Moreover, the company’s kiosks can be operated via voice recognition, and they drown out airport background noise in order to clearly pick up passengers’ voice biometrics.
“The technology behind Elenium’s systems became and continues to remain a prominent innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic,” commented Steven Lopez, Best Practices Research Analyst.
“Elenium listened to the feedback from airports regarding the virus and immediately focused on providing solutions that would help halt its spread. This focus on customer needs and its technological superiority makes it a valuable partner in current and future markets.”
Experian mentioned in Juniper Research’s Digital Identity report
Information services company Experian was recognized by Juniper Research as a leader in the current digital identity landscape.
Experian was mentioned in Juniper Research’s Digital Identity: Technology Evolution, Regulatory Landscape & Forecasts 2020-2025 report, which discusses the latest biometric and digital identity solutions in the industry.
“Experian has several innovative methods of verifying identity using both its own and its partners’ technologies,” the report reads.
“The company has a deep understanding of the nuanced nature of modern identity verification. Their application of passive verification within a wider ID context will position them in many use cases, including government.”
Idemia recognized by HR Asia as one of the best companies in the continent
Idemia won the Singapore edition of the HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards 2020.
The event awards companies with high employee engagement rates and exceptional workplace cultures in countries throughout Asia but excluding India.
