Vision-Box, a globally renowned company in biometric recognition, digital identity, and seamless travel management solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with U.S.-based digital identity innovator, Airside Mobile, Inc., best known for the Mobile Passport App.
The partnership offers an enhanced safe, secure and touchless platform for all stakeholders along the travel experience involved in managing verified identity credentials, including trusted health data.
Vision-Box and Airside partnership
Integrating Airside’s Digital Identity & Health Passport App with Vision-Box’s Identity Management Platform, Orchestra, allows travellers to safely and securely move along their entire journey, using their mobile device.
This end-to-end integration personalises the traveller experience and empowers them by keeping them in control of their sensitive information with transparent consent protocols. Data protection is at the heart of the partnership, further supported by Vision-Box’s unique certification in Privacy-By-Design and Airside’s distributed architecture that meets data protection laws, regulations and international standards.
Orchestra Identity Management Platform
Vision-Box’s touchless solutions help travel operators, such as airlines and airports, to deliver an outstanding experience
The Vision-Box’s Orchestra Identity Management Platform, a collaborative digital stage of real-time data administration and end-to-end customer-centric service management tools, provides instant analysis, monitoring, decision-making and reporting ability for a more convenient and seamless travel experience.
Vision-Box’s touchless solutions help travel operators, such as airlines, airports, cruise lines, and hotels, to deliver an outstanding experience. Powered by distinctive hardware, AI-based automation and biometric identification systems, travellers quickly self-process along their journey in a truly contactless manner. Using a process sustained by real-time data orchestration, stakeholders interactively collaborate with data-rich actionable intelligence.
Airside Digital Identity App
With more than nine million satisfied members, Airside’s digital identity network enhances seamless travel. The Airside Digital Identity App provides a convenient single enrollment for travellers to add their credentials (e.g. passports, driving licences, COVID-19 lab results) to their mobile device using biometric source-verification.
Travellers may choose to share their credentials according to their specified time-bound conditions at a multitude of digital and physical authentication points. Enrolled information is only stored on the traveller’s encrypted device, thereby reducing costs and liability for businesses and organisations who may have previously stored sensitive data on siloed databases.
Fast and secure solutions for safe travel operations
At a time when the travel and tourism industry needs fast and secure solutions to safely recover and resume operations, and with travellers demanding measures that enhance confidence in safety and security, the partnership between Vision-Box and Airside harnesses the companies’ years of proven experience and aligns their missions to improve the efficiency and quality of travel by minimising friction, boosting traveller confidence, and maintaining the highest level of safety, privacy and security.
