Griaule is a well known software company behind more than 500,000 biometric transactions worldwide. This biometric software company provides well calibrated facial and fingerprint recognition biometric software solutions to clients all over the world. Over the last few years, it has collaborated closely with companies like Lumidigm to provide banking and e-passport solutions to clients in South America and the rest of the world.
Airports are being modernized all over the world to phase out manual verification procedure and replace it with automatic e-verification technology. In this light, E-Passport based verification, using technology similar to the Griaule ICAO Face SDK, will become more commonplace in the coming few decades, as a smooth transition is made to a passenger friendly environment at all airports. E-Passport systems will make passenger management systems smoother at the airports and remove the need to queue up to get security clearance. The United States is yet to embrace e-passport fully; however, many countries including France have already started using this system successfully.
Griaule has also provided its expertise to personalize the whole banking experience and make it more attractive and customer friendly. Griaule Fingerprint SDK, a Fingerprint recognition software development kit can be used in a banking environment to provide ATM logins. The use of fingerprint recognition biometric software in ATM’s dispenses with the use of pin numbers that can be stolen very easily. Fingerprint login in ATM machines makes it safer for the user to login and withdraw money. Recently, a conglomeration consisting of Granule, Lumidigm and Deobold Brazil took up a massive project in Brazil to enable 3500 ATM’s with biometric login technology. This project is one of the largest in Brazil when it comes to modernizing the banking; however, experts feel that this is just the tip of the iceberg.
More and more Brazilian banks will shift towards biometric ATMs in the near future. The reliability and user friendliness allows it to be used in remote unmanned locations. The new biometric validation used in these ATMs is reliable; customers can simply withdraw money by inserting the card in the slot and validating their fingerprint. The information is fed into the system and money is dispensed only if the sample provided and recorded data matches. This is method is foolproof because biometric fingerprint data cannot be duplicated or tampered. The fingerprint SDK reads only live data and the system cannot be fooled with silicon fingerprint impersonations. The fingerprint reader reads the distance between the ridges and valleys and to get a match. Here, it should be remembered that everybody has a unique fingerprint and the probability of two people having the same set of fingerprints is zero.
As a leading biometric software company, Griaule offers reliable fingerprint and facial recognition software to its vendors. Having won the 2008 Fingerprint verification competition, it has truly emerged as a world class company providing unique solutions to businesses as well as individuals.
