Credence ID

Credence ID are executives and engineers with long successful histories in advanced biometric innovation. They were the first to develop commercially successful multi-modal biometric devices and deploy them on a large scale. Their team possesses extensive business and technical experience in fingerprint, iris, and facial recognition technologies. They have a history of successful large-scale, international enrollment and ID programs including US Federal, State and Local Governments, AADHAAR (UID) of India, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, and Pakistan. Mission Statement “To accelerate the democratization of the world’s ‘under-documented’ populations by providing solutions that make human enrollment and identification fast, intuitive, and cost effective…” Credence ID facilitates the democratization of the world's 'under-documented' populations by providing solutions that make human enrollment and identification fast, intuitive, and cost effective. Their products, both hardware and software, are specifically focused to enable an individual’s access to his/her rights through his/her identity - think biometric-empowered social welfare delivery, natural disaster relief funds with a touch of a finger, bureaucracy-free micro-finance programs, voter identification, etc. They hope to pivot the use of biometrics away from the DoD/FBI world where "you don't want to be on that database", to the empowerment world where "you want very much to be included". From a philosophical view point, they are creating "tools of democracy" such that everyone is included. They are heads down focused on creating products that are low cost, non-threatening, android based devices that are as simple to use as a mobile phone. They strive to create an ecosystem where each social/civilian agency can say “there is an app for that”.
