Mike Morris, business development director at Meniko, said:

green box“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.”
