According to IDEMIA the expansion of investment comes with recently renewed business in the APAC region, with growth driven by the adaptation of the Gen 3.0 Border & Airport platform for the local Australian market with a portfolio of solutions for a seamless traveller experience across the whole Border and Airport process.
IDEMIA says its teams are placed as close as possible to customer operations to foster innovation and incubate new concepts, while being part of its global innovation community and benefiting from its worldwide and multi-sectorial research and development capacity.
“This leading edge passenger facilitation capability was refined and productised for scalability through IDEMIA’s work with the award winning Singapore Changi airport in Terminals 3 and 4 and is now being further adapted to the other markets in Asia Pacific,” IDEMIA says.
The suite includes an innovative walkthrough eGate, designed for the free flow of passengers while guaranteeing they are seen, recognised and cleared by authorities.
“A significant part of the suite is already deployed in airports across Asia Pacific and with the additional investment in its Australian footprint IDEMIA will reinforce further its capacity to deliver,” IDEMIA notes.
Tim Ferris, IDEMIA’s President for Asia Pacific Region, said: “The Asia Pacific region is at the forefront of Border & Airport innovation and it remains a strategic growth market for IDEMIA”.
“Through the expansion of our capacity in Australia, we will better support our customers in the region and continue the development of a very successful suite of products and solutions for the global markets.”
