AFIS fingerprint algorithms used in Malawi License applications.

Innovatrics : 16 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Identity management in the Malawi driving license application and issuing process is handled using Innovatrics biometric fingerprint algorithms.
Face Technologies and QiSQi have announced a prosperous partnership. The partnership was sealed successfully with the first integration of the fast AFIS fingerprint algorithm of Innovatrics for the Republic of Malawi for use in the Transport Information System (Driver's License Application and Card Production).

Face Technologies, having a proven record of large-scale, high security card projects in various African and Asian countries, was looking for a new partner in Biometrics for emerging projects. The specific client requirements were demanding: speed and accuracy on large scale databases, flexibility of integration, and compliance with mainstream database systems.

Face Technologies, with the assistance of QiSQi, has successfully tested the Innovatrics ExpressID AFIS matching software. Face Technologies has given the green light to implement ExpressID as a standard AFIS matcher to its existing identity management solution.

Innovatrics, a technology leading company based in France and in Slovakia, has developed the new ExpressID AFIS matcher based on its hybrid minutiae and pattern fingerprint algorithm. This technology creates the following business and integration advantages to Face Technologies and its customers:.

* Fast fingerprint matcher that searches the entire database exhaustively, ensuring better accuracy than standard classification and indexing algorithms.
* Usage of standard computer hardware, lowering hardware and maintenance costs.
* Ease of integration into the existing solution, decreasing development time and time to market.

'We strive to provide leading-edge technologies in our solutions so that our customers continuously benefit from the latest innovations,' said Mr. Serfies, Face Technologies' CEO. He continued, 'We are impressed by Innovatrics AFIS technology, and with QiSQi on board as our consultancy affiliate, we are now well positioned to leap ahead in the AFIS market.'

This triumvirate of Face Technologies, QiSQi, and Innovatrics announces a new wave of Identification Technology in Africa, Asia and Europe, where security documents and biometrics meet their needs for a high secure environment according the International Standards.
