Features that make a difference

  • Easy administration: save administration time
  • Reduce data input errors with employee, subcontractor and visitor information import
  • Check the authenticity of the eID card
  • Helps detect fraudulent documents
  • Import the photo from the eID for later visual verification
  • Selectable field mapping

eID – secure governmental Identification

e-IDentification is being adopted worldwide at a fast pace. Governments, organizations and citizens have realized the benefits and convenience of holding electronic cards – they are safer, smarter and more durable than their traditional counterparts. Many governments issued eIDs as a part of their eGovernment initiatives. The main objective is to improve the delivery of public services for citizens and businesses by more convenient and more open. For example, in Belgium every citizen and resident from the age of 15 is legally obligated to carry their eID with them at all times.

Seamless integration

The C·CURE 9000 eID integration is designed to seamlessly and quickly integrate with existing or new installations. The eID integration provides individual attributes including: first name, last name, national ID, address, date of birth etc. from the inserted eID card chip. The integration tool allows users to choose what Personnel fields from C·CURE 9000 to map with, in conjunction with the details stored on the eID. The integration tool reads data direct off the microprocessor into the C·CURE 9000.

eID card compatibility

The eID cards are classed as electronic, since they have an electronic microprocessor containing identity data and secure certificates.
