Ipsidy signs contract with Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to supply automated finger identification system
Ipsidy Inc., a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, announces that it has signed a contract for the supply of the de-duplication hardware and software solution comprising an Automated Fingerprint Identification System ("AFIS") with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission ("ZEC") for use in the upcoming 2018 Zimbabwe General Elections.
Ipsidy's fully integrated IDSearch/IMS Biometric Voter Registry solution powered by its AFIS technology and workflow management capability was selected following an international tender to provide de-duplication, adjudication, and voter roll publication services.
Our system will be used by the ZEC to produce the required voter rolls from its national biometric voter database that was established during the past year. The system will provide automated voter roll publication conforming to Zimbabwe and international election standards. The integrity of the voter roll will be underpinned by the accuracy of the Ipsidy de-duplication algorithms and the adjudication processes.
"We are very pleased to have been selected by the ZEC to provide this critical solution, ahead of all competitors under the tender," said Mr. Thomas Szoke, Chief Technology Officer of Ipsidy Inc."This award represents the continued recognition of the efficacy and value of Ipsidy's identification platform, software and services in the African election market."
