This month, GenKey has issued a new release of its enrollment software, designed to meet the growing demands for high-quality mobile registration and authentication. GenKey’s Director of Projects Harold Hermans, “Our new enrollment software supports all the benefits of mobile registration without any compromise to the quality of the data captured.”
Updated user interface to enable non-skilled operators to use the software.
According to GenKey, many of the improvements in the new release address the challenges of mobile registration in rural locations, for example when registering door-to-door. To deal with the lack of infrastructure and poor or no connectivity, the new release features privacy-by-design software that’s designed to store sensitive biometric information securely. They’ve also improved the user experience to enable non-skilled operators to use the software, making the recruitment and training process easier in rural locations. In addition, the software runs on all mobile platforms and is compatible with all commonly available fingerprint scanners. Some highlights of the new release include operator authentication and login, 3g, wi-fi and NFC communication capabilities, reading Identity documents including Smartcards and MRZ data, back-up mechanisms, importing and exporting of identity information in simple data interchangeable formats including XML and JSON.
This new release marks an important milestone for GenKey. According to GenKey CEO Michiel van der Veen, “This latest release helps our partners and customers to enroll and authenticate individuals without worrying about data quality and security. This new mobile solution works across markets from Elections, Healthcare, Social Protection, Banking, Telco, Civil Register and more. It is an important step towards more affordable and practical solutions that will help accelerate the adoption of biometric identity in developing economies. That’s ultimately what drives every new innovation in GenKey.’’
