GEYCE Biometrics is formed by a team of experts in biometric development (fingerprints and face) and its application. We are an IT engineering company specialising in biometrics, capable of designing solutions, managing projects and ensuring their optimum operation in time.

With over 20 years’ experience in the sector, we provide advanced biometric solutions to end clients, technological consultancy firms or hardware companies requiring expertise in the biometrics field.

We manufacture a product line called BioIdenti which is focussed on multi-biometric management. This solution is compatible with mobility systems or kiosk-type stations and specialises in fingerprint and face biometrics.

We offer consultancy and training services to ensure quality in the enrolment of fingerprints in order to improve performance and reliability in the identification process.

We develop management solutions for the administration directly or in cooperation with the main IT partners of the country.

One success story is the entire development for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of travel documentation management (visas and passports), whereby we provide consultancy, design, development, test systems, implementation and training in offices all around the world following the agile scrum methodology.

What our clients say about us

“I have been working with GEYCE for many years and I could highlight many things: their products, their technology, their methodology… but, above all, I’d say the people are their greatest asset; with them, any challenge can be faced and any project is possible.”

Juan Carlos Barajas (Head of Web Service at the MAEC)

“Thanks to GEYCE we have totally changed our passport issuance system. We went from a distributed issuance system to a centralised model and finally to an outsourced model. All these changes have been made in a continuous manner without causing any disturbances.”

Carlos Vergara (Head of the Service for Nationals of the MAEC)

“A solid partner we can trust. Once you reach an agreement with them, they will never let you down.”

FAQ

General questions

Do you offer SDKs for your Bioldenti solutions?

Yes. We create our own libraries. We study each case and reach agreements that make it possible to use the service with reasonable costs.

What is a kiosk in biometrics?

It’s a station that integrates various hardware elements such as data reader, camera, fingerprint scanner, document reader… and which is focussed on citizens. Accordingly, citizens interact with the system by means of buttons or a touch screen.

 

Our implementations on kiosk-type stations always offer an API for web control and monitoring accessible for the operator so he can follow the citizen enrolment process and, if applicable, take control of the process and decide on any given step.

What platforms does BioIdenti work on?

Our base libraries have been migrated to IOS, Android, Windows and Linux platforms.

 

Similarly, solutions adapted to each platform have been created, whether mobile, web, server, desktop…

Why is BioIdenti different from other SDKs?

Our SDK ensures a quality solution is obtained and this is a competitive advantage for GEYCE. A consultancy and integration service is also included to ensure quality. GEYCE’s SDKs work.

Can I integrate BioIdenti biometric solutions in a webapp?

Yes, we know how to do it. We are aware that this is one of the main problems arising when biometrics are integrated into an information system which is usually web-based. Management of hardware devices makes it more difficult to implement solutions that are easy to maintain.

 

At GEYCE we specialise in solutions adapted to each case and can provide from black-box type solutions controlled via web to ActiveX components that control a device and can be controlled from web solutions.

We have also been able to provide solutions for banking environments under virtualised models.

How does the enrolment system you offer work?

We provide a solution to the incorporation of biometric data (usually a face photograph and fingerprints) in a file or application. It works like a black box.

It is usually managed as a separate process to the gathering of biographic data and relations are established by means of an identifier.

Our competitive advantage lies in quality assurance. We guarantee the best possible capture quality and this offers the fullest assurances in the subsequent identification process.


Partners and distributors

How do we distribute GEYCE products in South America?

We look for local partners capable of integrating and supplying hardware who are a reference in the IT field and work for the respective public administration.

How do we distribute GEYCE products in European countries?

We channel distribution through local partners who can complement our solutions in each country.

We are HW manufacturers: can we do business?

One of our strengths is interoperability. We can homologate new hardware that may be offered and which could be compatible with our solutions. We can join efforts as partners on certain projects offering specific vertical solutions. Contact biometrics@geyce.es.

We have encountered problems with fingerprints: can you help us?

Yes. We can offer consultancy and process monitoring services. We can foster operator training, integrate quality control modules or supply SDKs to be integrated into your project.

What biometric hardware (scanners and cameras) manufacturers do you work with?

We set no limits to business; we are open to making our solutions compatible with all manufacturers in the sector.

Do you sell biometric scanners or cameras?

No, but we can make recommendations based on our experience and according to the scope of application of the system.
