BEDFORD, Mass., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software and solutions, today introduced Indigo|Onboard™, the first in Aware's new Indigo™ family of cloud-based solutions that deliver turnkey biometric search functionality either as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription or as a server-based software license. Indigo|Onboard™ is designed specifically for enhancing the onboarding process with advanced identity management capabilities, applying the power of biometric search to quickly and confidently determine if a new customer or employee has an existing identity record in the system. In this way, attempts at identity fraud can be detected and duplicate identity records prevented.
Indigo|Onboard offers browser-based capture of fingerprints and faces, and scalable one-to-many search of millions of records. It separates the enrollment and investigation processes into two asynchronous steps so they can be performed and administrated by personnel with different skills and credentials. Fingerprint data is searched against all records previously enrolled in the system, and positive search results are queued in a worklist, with each work item including alerts and the associated ID numbers and facial images. As a separate asynchronous process, work items can be used towards further investigation, and then either closed or escalated.
Indigo|Onboard is built upon Aware's market-leading Biometric Services Platform (BioSP™), and includes WebEnroll™, a browser-based biometric enrollment application used by thousands and recently optimized for HTML5. Indigo|Onboard also offers optional extensions. One is the use of URC|Mobile™ for biometric verification of employees or customers against data in Indigo|Onboard using an Android-based tablet. Another is the detection of errors and fraud indicators in identity data, powered by Aware's Inquire™ identity analytics technology.
"Indigo|Onboard aims to strike a balance between utility and simplicity, enabling compelling identity management functions without requiring installation or integration of new software but allowing for enhancements," commented David Benini, VP of Marketing at Aware. "The power of biometric search has never been so accessible."
Aware will demonstrate Indigo|Onboard and other biometric solutions at three upcoming events: ID4Africa in Windhoek, Namibia on April 26-28; Seamless Middle East in Dubai on May 1-2; and connect:ID in Washington DC on May 1-3.
