October 6, 2015

(Atlanta, Georgia, USA)  During a signing ceremony at the the joint Netherlands – Flanders Economic Mission to Atlanta (Georgia), WorldReach Software and InnoValor signed a contract in which Worldreach licenses InnoValor’s NFC Passport Reader. The contract was signed in the presence of the Dutch Prime Minister Rutte, Flemish Minister-President Bourgeois and the Mayor of Atlanta.

InnoValor provides mobile identity verification software. InnoValor’s NFC Passport Reader is the flagship product and makes it possible to read and verify the contactless RFID chip of passports and other identity documents using a smartphone with Near Field Communication. It supports online document identity verification in a cost efficient, secure and user friendly manner.

This contract signifies the next step in the relationship between the two companies, with WorldReach as key partner for InnoValor in the border management and passenger transportation sector, starting with the North American market.

The NFC Passport Reader will be integrated in WorldReach’s online immigration application, which uses smartphone technologies, in conjunction with ePassports, to enhance the early screening of travellers to a country, while preserving and protecting traveller privacy. The NFC Passport Reader is a key component that will make it possible for applicants to self-identify themselves during their online immigration application with minimal human intervention or need to travel to a government office abroad.

The use of the innovative NFC Passport Reader technology with WorldReach’s online immigration platform will initially be a technology demonstration, as part of a project funded by the Canadian Safety and Security Program, which is a federal program led by Defence Research and Development Canada’s Centre for Security Science, in partnership with Public Safety Canada.  This project aims to improve service, service delivery and facilitate the arrival of incoming travellers to Canada while protecting the safety and security of Canadians. It was recently highlighted at BORDERPOL Americas “Curtailing Terrorist Travel – Threats and Solutions” in Washington, DC, September 10, 2015.
