California selects Gemalto for ID doc verification

09/07/15

The California Department of Motor Vehicles has deployed a document verification solution developed by the Franco-Dutch firm Gemalto at nearly 200 of its centres.

Using the firm’s advanced Coesys Document Verification software solution, DMV officials can verify the authenticity of such documents as passports, identity cards and driver licenses by simply checking the graphical data and security features against reference templates from an array of issuing countries.

In a statement, Gemalto noted that it had worked with the California DMV to bring an automated synchronization solution connected to a central document repository, adding that the solution reduces the burden of manual updates on each authentication workstation located within the DMV field offices.

“We selected Gemalto's solution based on their demonstrated ability to meet our requirements and in the timeframe we wanted it delivered," said Wesley Goo, California DMV Deputy Director. "Gemalto's experts understood our specific business practices and were able to provide a consistent solution to all our offices."

"With Coesys Document Verification, California DMV has full control over their document library, which they can customize by adding templates at will or by enhancing authentication checks on specific documents," said Steve Purdy, Director of Business Development at Gemalto.
