Foreign Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief

Biometric Identity Solution

Identity management aimed to protect the supply chain in aid and relief operations around the world

The Challenge for Aid Organizations

International organizations, NGOs and government agencies face a special set of challenges in the rugged, remote and chaotic field environments where they operate. Keeping track of who is receiving aid and when can be difficult — or even impossible — in regions where people do not have readily verifiable legal identities. Disaster situations present a similar challenge, since credentials are easily lost or destroyed.

How Crossmatch Can Help

We understand the challenges facing foreign assistance and disaster relief programs. Our solutions bring the flexibility, reliability and security of biometric identity management to the front lines, helping organizations operate more effectively in the field.

Our solutions help organizations accomplish key objectives that maximize the impact of aid:

Know who you’re talking to.

Verifying aid recipients against their biometric identity minimizes waste and fraud, which frees up more resources for people in need.

Build a continuum of care.

Creating a persistent, unique biometric identity for aid recipients facilitates efficient and effective delivery of services, even in the most uncertain field environments.

Track results.

Data-driven approaches to assistance generate clear outcomes. Creating an audit trail of recipient encounters with assistance providers helps organizations map their impact, even on disparate and mobile populations.

Go where the action is.

Our mobile solutions are built for the harshest environments on earth, and cutting-edge technology gives you the flexibility to manage identities in any place, at any time.

Work together.

Adhering to international standards helps ensure interoperability with systems from other organizations or governments — which means that valuable insights from other organizations can integrate with your data.
