(Connect:ID 2015, Washington, DC) WorldReach Software, leader in commercial-off-the-shelf consular software and secure travel document issuance solutions, announces the selection by multiple British Overseas Territories, for its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) PassportReach solution. Anguilla, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands and the British Virgin Islands have each entered into separate, multi-year contracts with WorldReach Software. Industry analysts believe this marks the first implementation of a secure, Cloud-based issuance system for any country or territory. An additional key factor in winning the project was the ability of WorldReach to comply with stringent data security and privacy requirements of Her Majesty’s Passport Office. HMPO will be personalizing the new ePassports at an existing facility in the United Kingdom.
PassportReach supports all phases of secure document issuance such as data capture, entitlement and identity processing, scanning, inventory and tracking. The system also supports both centralized personalization for full validity passports and decentralized personalization for temporary passports or emergency travel documents. The SaaS-Cloud model reduces initial costs, ramp-up time, and infrastructure investments, while offering improved accessibility, flexibility, security, redundancy and scalability.
“We are very proud to add six new countries to our growing list of secure travel document issuance clients,” Gordon Wilson, President and CEO of WorldReach added, ‘From large complex interconnected consular systems to smaller, lower volume, but globally accessible secure issuance applications, WorldReach solutions can scale to meet the needs of any country’s specific and unique requirements for eGovernment Service Delivery.”
