Civil Identity

IDs are Personal

The whole idea in civil Identity is making sure that the right person gets exactly what comes to him. First of all, as an organization, you don't want to make mistakes. National IDs or other kinds of civil IDs form the basis for identifying yourself in a number of situations. If that basis is incorrect, it will cause serious problems down the line. Making sure that the right ID is issued to the right person is getting increasingly more difficult with the migration of people from countries all over the world. Thus Matching has become more complex as it needs to use information from several sources that can show slightly different data. Two information sources may use the same name but different addresses. Does that mean they are two different persons or has the person moved? Names may have been spelled differently in varying databases, but it could be one and the same person. As cultures all have their own naming conventions, translating them can result in names that are spelled in many ways.

Searching a name and getting a result that is exactly what you were looking for seems right, yet it might still be the wrong person. Matching results with other modalities such as fingerprints, tattoos, photos etc. will increase the probability that you have the right person in front of you that needs an ID.

Apart from making mistakes, there is the problem of people trying to fraud the system. They purposely want to get false IDs for all kinds of reasons, usually not the best kind. With the threat of terrorism issuing the right ID to the right person can be crucial. But even with healthcare some people will try to fraud the system to get more than what they are entitled to.

WCC has all the technology and expertise to play an important role in getting people the right ID and making sure the entitlements are correctly given to the right people. The ELISE Software Platform uses Multi-Cultural Name Matching,

Biometric and Biographic data matching  (Multi-modal Fusion) and has a fast data De-duplication service all working together to make the promise of exceptional Smart Search & Match a reality in ID disbursement and Entitlement.

An example of how ELISE is deployed for entitlement is the recent case for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). It concerns the worldwide roll-out of the Biometric Identity Management System (BIMS). BIMS is developed for the registration, de-duplication, and verification of the forcibly displaced to ensure they receive assistance where and when it is needed. During its successful pilot program at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi, more than 17,000 refugees enrolled their biometric data and had their identities verified. WCC takes part in the global roll-out project that provides assistance where and when it is needed. This year (2015), the commencement on a global scale begins in Thailand.
