Astel (UK) ltd has announced a partnership with Meniko Records Management Services to distribute GreenBox – a multi-function device designed to convert paper-intensive business processes into paperless transactions.
GreenBox is a proudly South African product developed by Meniko Records Management Services to fulfil a need in the marketplace for a device that can scan physical documents, identity documents, passports and drivers licences.
Importantly, GreenBox meets the ever-growing demand across all market sectors to improve identity management and verification, combat identity theft and prevent fraudulent transactions.
Mike Morris, business development director at Meniko, said:
“GreenBox offers businesses across Africa the opportunity to obtain many different functions from a single unit with a footprint not much bigger than an A4 notebook, and dispenses completely with the need for photocopying.GreenBox is also a perfect solution to combat the growing threat of identity theft and fraudulent transaction by creating a biometric profile of an individual, which can be stored in a central repository, to verify an individual’s identity.”
Identification processes featured in a GreenBox unit include:
• Scanner (for physical document input)
• Fingerprint reader (for biometric capture)
• Signature pad (to capture digital signature)
• Camera (for the all-important photo ID)
• Smart card reader (EMV compliant)
Yuvraj Jobanputra, Astel’s Managing Director, said: “The incorporation of so many identification processes in a single solution is what makes GreenBox the perfect choice for business across Africa looking to fulfil the three operational objectives of Applied Identity Control – reinforcing security, accelerating processes and building the chain of evidence.
“We’re sure our resellers across Africa will find GreenBox to be a popular addition to their range of document management solutions.”
GreenBox is compatible with ECT, FICA, RICA, NCA and CPA.
