Colombia selects IDEMIA to upgrade its Identification and Civil Registry platform
IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, has been selected by the National Civil Registry of Colombia (Registraduría Nacional del Estado Civil de Colombia – RNEC ) to update the identification and civil registry platform.
This platform is the trusted repository of citizens’ biometric and alphanumeric data and ensures the uniqueness of identities. IDEMIA (formerly known as OT-Morpho) has worked with the RNEC since the beginning of this project and has constantly supported the successive improvements of the solution. In 2017, when in need to strengthen the platform in order to offer new services to the government and to the population while maintaining a high level of security and satisfaction of the users, RNEC decided to pursue its partnership with IDEMIA.
Through this new contract, IDEMIA will enhance the capacities of the platform and provide technological and functional upgrades to RNEC and its users at large. Furthermore, an additional biometric security feature using facial recognition will be added, making user identification easier while at the same time increasing security.
We created this platform 20 years ago and are committed to make continuous improvements. Our system is recognized worldwide as an effective and robust identification and civil registry system. We have trusted IDEMIA from the beginning to help us achieve our ambitions and we renew our trust today in IDEMIA to take this platform to an even better level of service.
RNEC is a leading provider of identification services to Colombian public and private agencies and we are proud of this longstanding partnership. Our objective is to support RNEC in its evolution with permanent focus on citizen satisfaction and service.
IDEMIA has a long track record in establishing identification platforms. In addition to our references in Latin America, the company is also a major contributor to the world’s largest biometric-based ID program “Aadhaar” and has enabled mass-enrolment of more than 1.1 billion people in India to date.
