DLRS Limited joined forces with HID Global Ireland Teoranta together with Absolute Graphics and Purple Pod, to implement the Irish Passport Card project.

“The introduction of the passport card is a significant innovation that will enhance the travel experience for Irish people as they go on holidays or business trips to 30 countries throughout Europe,” said Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan T.D, speaking at the card’s launch in Dublin.

Ahead of the above development, HID Global said it  will showcase the mobile ID experience on smartphones and share its latest innovations in thin secure polycarbonate e-passport datapages at the International Civil Aviation Organization Machine Readable Travel Documents Conference, October 14 through 16, 2015, in Montreal.

In the beginning of October, HID Global said its ActivID Tap Authentication solution has been named the year’s best new software/IT product by Security Products magazine. The company added that it was the 17th award that HID Global has received for its solutions powered by Seos technology.

On September 28, HID announced a technology alliance  with SureID to combine its Seos credential technology with latter ’s identity management programs to provide organizations the ability to conduct identity screening, verification and credentialing for vendors, contractors and volunteers in order to increase safety and security.
