Facial Recognition provides a seamless experience for passengers from check-in to baggage drop to lounge access and boarding flights.

ic_banking and finance


Facial Recognition enables banks to provide an enhanced service to customers in-branch by automatically identifying approaching customers, allowing bank staff to provide a personalised welcome and furnish them with important information related to that customer.


Casinos, Gaming Venues & Betting Agencies

Facial Recognition supports host responsibility by recognising those people who have registered as problem gamblers or pro-actively excluded themselves from the venue.



Facial Recognition lets customers use their face to authorise payments rather than present a credit or debit card or cash. Fast and secure authorisation makes cashless and cardless payments possible.

ic_hospitality and retail


Facial Recognition is used across a
wide range of retail organisations for:

  • Customer experience – allows fast food companies to deliver an improved customer experience at self-service or ordering kiosks.
  • Loss prevention – alert staff to known shoplifters and trespassed individuals, reducing loss and improving recovery rates.
  • Engagement – deliver a more efficient, friction-free experience for VIPs, loyalty program members and known customers. Access shopping history, monitor check-out queues, total shopping times, analyse traffic patterns and operations.
  • Tailored advertising – to the estimated age and gender of the person viewing the advertising screen.
