It was exciting to join Dan Shube on the “Golf and Travel Show” to talk about the latest innovations making travel safer and airport security more effortless.
Most golfers enjoy traveling to take on new challenges at golf courses in the U.S. and around the world. Unfortunately, air travel has been chaotic and challenging the past couple of years, which has impacted these avid golfers’ ability to enjoy their favorite activity.
Safe and seamless air travel
Dan and I discussed advancements in Digital ID management, biometric technology and touchless transactions to make traveling safe and seamless.
Instead of fumbling with bags, tickets and passports, NEC’s biometrics and Digital ID management elevates the customer experience from curb-to-gate. Frequent flyers can eliminate paper boarding passes, as well as reduce wait times at airport security using our opt-in advanced face recognition technology.
NEC is continuously upgrading the biometric algorithm to meet health and safety guidelines, including face recognition while wearing masks. On the show, we shared a laugh about the innovations enhancing the customer journey and leaving the tech from “Star Trek” and “The Jetsons” in the dust. So, while air travel may never be “fun”, we are working hard to make it as stress free as possible.
Specifically, we talked about NEC I:Delight, a complete Digital ID management platform that enables touchless traveler verification and secure transactions. Using I:Delight, airports and airlines increase:
- Privacy controlled by passengers who opt-in and choose how their Digital IDs are used.
- Safety for travelers and employees, verifying identity with face masks in place.
- Efficiency enabled by processing passengers faster with fewer touches and interactions.
- Interoperability with existing technologies at airports, as well as iOS and Android apps.
- Scalability to expand capabilities, including retail and restaurant purchases at the airport to car rentals and hotel check-in.
