Arana develops biometric payment application integrated with Idemia MorphoWave
Over the past year there has been a surge in demand for contactless systems and biometric devices around the world, and companies have been working at pace to develop solutions to answer this demand.
Arana Sales Director Ali Nasser says the aim behind the application was to not only help financial institutions and retail organizations respond safely to coronavirus, but create a lasting and sustainable solution. Biometric payment methods also support companies in cost savings, without the need to purchase physical cards, print documents and cover administration.
The MorphoWave Compact device applies contactless and accurate 3D fingerprint scanning technology with a single wave of the hand. The device also captures aging, wet, dry and latent prints.
The integrated contactless biometric payment terminal from Arana can be integrated with several payment methods.
Building on this technology, Arana designed a customizable application to enroll users (within 30 seconds) via association with a payment card or account to a registered user on the mobile application. Once enrolled, users verify payments at the cashier.
The cloud-based system can be integrated in a Closed or Open method; Closed works with organizations with a limit of eighty thousand records, while Open works with those who have an unlimited record potential. Multi-location enrolment and authentication are also possible on this intuitive solution. The verification monitoring system can be used to overlook the verification of the users on the MorphoWave Compact from one simple portal, while payment applications include Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal.
“We’ve worked closely with a reseller who is testing this new system with a Japanese retail organization who require the system for their Shopping mall food courts based in several locations. We believe this system is crucial in helping retailers and financial institutions provide a safe and secure payment solution to their customers, all the while decreasing the chance of Fraud. It’ll definitely be a step in the right direction for many organizations,” says Nasser.
Arana has previously worked on projects with the United Nations (such as the Bio Box solution) and Sharps Pixley, and is partnered with several leading biometric providers, such as SecuGen, Thales and Iris ID.
