National Civil Registry, Panama
The existing Civil Registry of Panama needed to be updated and modernized to meet international standards. The Tribunal Electoral is the governing body of the registry where it is used to register births, deaths and marriages, issue certificates and record any changes in personal information of citizens, as well as foreigners residing in the country. After a successful tender, a consortium of Sertracen GSI and Veridos, including IECISA as integrator with Innovatrics acting as biometric technology provider, was chosen to replace the current provider.
Although database migration was a tremendous challenge, Innovatrics successfully migrated the data from the older L1 system and even managed to include the biometric data of minors. The delivery of 1:N joint deployment of IFace – Innovatrics’ high-speed face recognition solution used for background removal before NID issuance for this project, and our industry-leading fingerprint identification software, having a true match rate of 99.98% according to NIST testing has allowed the Electoral Tribunal to meet the demands for the services provided to the population. The system utilizes Innovatrics ABIS and presently contains records of almost 5 million individuals.
The advanced solution Innovatrics delivered in cooperation with our partners allows the Tribunal Electoral to perform its responsibilities with greater efficiency and increased security. The National Civil Registry of Panama now has one of the most advanced systems in the world, enabling greater flexibility for support and maintenance and improving end-user satisfaction.
