A partnership with South Africa’s Barizma Solutions will see TECH5’s technology used to support law enforcement activities in the country. Barizma will integrate TECH5‘s contactless face and fingerprint scanning technologies into its Mobile Sheriff and INTELLI-ID platforms.
Mobile Sheriff, Barizma’s flagship solution, is aimed at helping traffic officers to identity vehicles and motorists. Thanks to the partnership, the platform will integrate T5-AirSnap, which enables officers to perform contactless scans of drivers’ fingerprints using an Android tablet. The fingerprint images can then be transmitted to the Home Affairs National Identity System (HANIS) database for identity verification.
Similarly, T5-AirSnap support will facilitate biometric matching via HANIS through Barizma’s INTELLI-ID solution, which the company describes as a fully mobile identity management platform operating through a ruggedized Android tablet. Both face and fingerprint scanning are supported.
Both solutions will be used to support not only law enforcement agents, but also those of State-Owned Entities, when performing identity check against South Africa’s national identity database.
In a statement announcing the integrations, Barizma CEO Adrian Knowles expressed enthusiasm about the benefits that TECH5’s technology will bring to his company’s portfolio.
“Our highly technological intelligent ID management solutions, INTELLI-ID and The Mobile Sheriff, are now equipped with the latest contactless capture technologies from TECH5, providing even greater value to our customers and users in South Africa by allowing for fast, accurate and effortless biometric acquisition using the built-in camera of a smartphone or a tablet and eliminating the need for additional biometric capture devices,” he said.
The partnership’s announcement comes after Contactable, another South African identity solutions provider, integrated TECH5’s AirSnap Face solution into its platform earlier this year.
