Accenture has been selected by the Dutch Ministry of Internal Affairs to design and deliver automated border control systems at Schiphol Airport. Accenture initially provides 36 electronic border crossing systems for use at the airport. To validate the identity and passports of passengers by facial recognition, the new systems use the latest in biometric technologies. Border passage-based biometrics enhances security, increases efficiency, improves travel experience and reduces the waiting time of travelers at one of the world’s busiest airports.
In partnership with Vision-Box, Accenture already has successfully implemented similar automated border crossing programs at airports in the UK, Portugal and Finland. By deploying self-service systems, it is possible to limit the large amounts of travelers in a fast, secure and customer-oriented manner. For this project in the Netherlands, Accenture is supported by Vision-Box and Capgemini to develop and implement the solution. This partnership is also responsible for trainings, support and maintenance of the electronic systems.
