Face Technologies is one of the largest companies in its specific environment and is internationally and locally well-known and is respected as a strong player in the areas in which it provides solutions and services. We regularly compete against large International and South African companies for business.
As an independent system integrator, we have carefully positioned ourselves to be vendor-independent by not entering into exclusive agreements with any technology supplier.
All our solutions are customised to meet each client’s individual requirements. We provide end-to-end solutions which can include components such as project / programme management, business requirement analysis, software development, building refurbishment, provision of hardware, and training and skills transfer.
Face provides solutions that extend from a single stand-alone system to large integrated national systems.
Government and non-government organisations are given the opportunity of interfacing with specific data and, in return, permit interfacing with their own databases .
We also appreciate the importance of data integrity and security when it comes to gathering information, as well as putting the system in place. This is why we use a partnership approach for each project, from the initial identification of your requirements and defining system specifications, through to implementation and support and maintenance.
This long-term strategy has enabled Face over many years to evaluate the requirements of the customer and then source the most appropriate solution for our valued customers.
The Mobile Verification Station (MRS)
The MRS is used for the capturing or verification of citizens’/voters’ information for registration purposes. The customisable MRS allows for the capturing of data such as photo, fingerprints, signature and text data using customised software.
Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS)
ABIS (Automated Biometric Identification System), is used for the unique identification of multiple biometrics (fingerprints, facial, voice, iris etc.). Our solution is a highly scalable identification and authentication platform that performs one-to-many searches or a one-to-one match against large stores of biometrics and other identity data.
It does so by deploying biometric and text data and matching algorithms across a cluster of multiple computing nodes.
In the early 90's the company cemented its foundations in smart card technology and ID solutions. The natural evolution of our business has placed us firmly in the biometric identity management sector of modern industry. Biometric technology is evolving at an alarming rate around the world. So, faced the rigorous commercial demands for enterprise style identity management services we have focused our vision towards providing leading edge, mobile biometric identity solutions.
Throughout Africa, the ability to reach remote rural areas is essential, so mobility is a critical element to the success of any ABIS based solution. Our system integration teams have been deployed all over Africa and the Sub-Continent supplying multifactorial solutions to both governments and the private sector alike.
Facial Recognition Solutions
Our award winning facial recognition technology can be applied to a multitude of business solutions. We develop and integrate bespoke applications for the financial sector, telecommunications, public security/surveillance, ICAO checks and retail analytics, in both governmental and commercial sectors.
Through strategic system integration and our partner network we are now able to make facial biometric comparisons, identifications and verifications against national identity databases.
Features and benefits include:
• Enable a quality evaluation of pre-enrolled facial images as per normative requirements.
• Support facial tracking and evaluation scenarios in real time image processing.
• Enable high speed facial recognition solutions.
• Assure convenient support for self-service and assisted enrolment scenarios.
• Multi-face tracking and detection
• Blacklist monitoring
• Crowd Statistics
• Real-time matching
• Industry-leading accuracy
We provide practical solutions for organisations who wish to use facial biometrics in their applications. The performance has been optimized for facial detection, template extraction and matching can be completed in less than a second on an average smart deice or fixed installation. As a result, our facial biometric solution delivers exceptional processing speed and unrivalled accuracy.
In the latest version of the ongoing Face Recognition Vendor Tests (FRVT), as published by NIST on 25th August 2017 the facial recognition algorithm that we use demonstrated its outstanding accuracy by ranking amongst the best across all five datasets and amongst 32 other algorithms from around the world.
The datasets include:
• Visa images
• Mugshot images
• Selfie images
• Webcam images
• Wild images
The FRVT measures the performance of automated facial recognition technologies applied to a wide range of civil, law enforcement and homeland security applications including verification of visa images, de-duplication of passport images, and recognition across photojournalism images.
Motor Vehicle Registration & Driving License Solution
Motor Vehicle Registration and Driving License Solutions have a huge socioeconomic impact in our world today. As a revenue generator, it creates a means for Governments to fund the creation and maintenance of traffic infrastructure such as roads and at the same time assist in increasing road safety. Increased road infrastructure means more vehicles, more people driving, more business opportunities and economic growth.
With vast experience in this area, Face Technologies can assist Governments with a customised solution to suit your specific requirement.
Since the company’s inception in 1993, one of our specialties continues to be supplying electoral solutions to governments throughout Africa. Through our collaborative efforts with various governments and private sector entities, we have accumulated a vast amount of experience and expertise in registering high volumes of voters in both remote rural and urban areas coupled with biometric verification at the polling station.
Using our own “Suitcase Technology” our teams are able to capture millions of identities over a very short period of time both on and offline then synchronize and de-duplicate the data in our AFIS.
