The partnership between Face Technologies, a world market leader in business solutions for effective identification focusing on biometrics and smart card technologies based in South Africa, and QiSQi, leading player in biometric services and manufacturing of secure documents, continues to thrive.

Face Technologies implemented a biometric voter registration platform for the local, provincial and national elections in Mozambique. The government of Mozambique has chosen biometrics to prevent duplicate votes and to ensure that the elections will take place in the utmost democratic environment.

Challenges for Face Technologies include enrolling 10 million voters on the fields, in the towns,  and in the country, as well as instantly identifying voters registering more than once.

Face Technologies, with the assistance of QiSQi, has successfully deployed the Innovatrics IDKit Mobile SDK on 3500 handhelds used as enrollment stations as well as the Innovatrics ExpressID AFIS Government Edition on 17 parallel servers for instant identification. Thanks to the fast AFIS matcher and the compatibility of biometric engines on handhelds and servers, the architecture provides "real-time" answer and thus ensures a democratic voting process.

"The ease-of-use of Innovatrics products across both mobile and server platforms, and the responsiveness of the technical team accelerated the deployment process in record-breaking time," said Johann Caubergh, CEO of QiSQi.

Viktor Fischer, Director of Business Development at Innovatrics continued, "It is a pleasure to work with industry-leading companies with expertise in system integration and biometrics. Proper implementation of biometrics guarantees reliability of the final system and satisfaction of the government and the population – ensuring democracy in developing countries."

The triumvirate of Face Technologies, QiSQi and Innovatrics once again proves its capacity to be competitive in technology, budget and integration.
