Vision-Box and Biometric Solutions have been awarded a four-year contract from the Danish government for biometric-based solutions and components for both enrollment and automated border control.
Under the agreement the consortium will deliver biometric equipment and related services to, among others, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
The solution will enable the Danish government to improve processes related to citizen’s electronic identity, as well as help several ministries’ missions for Danish citizen and foreigners’ enrollment for passport, visa and residence permits.
One of the key parts of the solution will be a portable biographic and biometric enrollment & verification solution, the Vision-Box vb e-pass® portable, an all-in-one unit that collects a citizen’s face and fingerprint biometric data, as well as their digital signature.
Jean-François Lennon, Director of Global Business Development, Sales & Marketing at Vision-Box:
“We look forward to working with the Danish Government, and our partner Biometric Solutions, to provide the best citizen experience ever. For that, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art technology, designed to offer more efficient and convenient services related to Electronic Identity.”
Biometric Solutions will provide its existing enrollment portfolio, which is already being deployed at Danish embassies and municipalities to enroll citizens while adhering to government rules and regulations.
Alex Ramskov Johannsen, CEO of Biometric Solutions:
“We are very happy that our collaboration with Vision-Box will help government institutions raise their service level for citizens around the world, while at the same time strengthening the security measures protecting citizens’ personal data.”
