PRESS RELEASE: Regula and ICTS Europe Systems Automate and Accelerate Passenger ID Processing in New Tech Collaboration
Published: Tuesday, December 19, 2023
Regula, a global developer of forensic devices and identity verification solutions, and ICTS Europe Systems, a leading provider of technology-based solutions to the global travel industry, partnered-up to provide multifunctional passport readers that have completely transformed operational efficiencies and the subsequent passenger experience across many European airports.
Hundreds of millions of air passengers every year
ID processing time reduced to just 3 seconds per document
Significant decrease in human workload
Regula 7029 is a compact yet powerful device which is used to read and verify travel documents at check-in and boarding on flights from Europe to the USA. This direction is an important one for ICTS Europe Systems and its customers, so selecting the best identity verification (IDV) vendor to enhance the passenger and air carrier experience was imperative.
Deploying Regula 7029, ICTS Europe Systems has successfully decreased the time allocated for processing documents. Leveraging this new solution, it takes only three seconds to scan and verify one ID. This reduces the overall time that passengers spend checking in and boarding at the gate. Plus, Regula 7029 is allowing ICTS Europe Systems to automate identity document processing, which addressed a core need of reducing human workload.
“The whole project, starting from purchase to integration, was straightforward and smooth thanks to the great technology, collaboration and ongoing support we have with Regula. Pairing Regula hardware with TravelDoc online verification system and our suite of core capabilities has driven down processing times for each document based on accuracy and the exceptional first time scan rate – all in a very short period of time. Using Regula 7029 for passenger ID verification gives us the required speed and quality to keep improving the overall experience for both air carriers and passengers,” says Jason Spencer, Commercial Director at ICTS Europe Systems.
A space-saving independent workstation for full-page data processing, Regula 7029 enables automated reading and comprehensive authenticity verification of a wide range of IDs, including passports, ID cards, visas, and more. Apart from checking data in the visual zone, MRZ (machine-readable zone), barcode, and electronic chip, Regula 7029 also captures images of documents in various light sources, such as white, ultraviolet, infrared, etc., to verify their hidden security features.
“We share a long-established relationship with ICTS Europe Systems, and over the years have cooperated on a number of projects. Collectively, we are always aiming to continue and expand our collaboration for the benefit of airlines and travelers everywhere. Our R&D in identity verification solutions, both hardware and software, is rooted in our 30+ years of expertise in forensic research and document examination. Having scrutinized innumerable types of IDs from every corner of the world, we know what to pay attention to when verifying a document, so we enable our solutions to do it with unrivaled precision,” says Maris Kaminskis, Executive Director at Regula Europe.
