X Infotech marks completion of Ghana eID card project


Latvian provider and integrator of software solutions for identity documents and smart cards X Infotech, have successfully rolled out an electronic identity documents and smart cards solutions project in Ghana — the new eID card (Ghanacard).

X Infotech implemented its personalization solutions for issuance of new eID cards with 5 applications (ICAO, MOC, digital signature, authentication and payments). Now, the new personalization capabilities cover instant, deferred and centralized issued cards, and are powered by X Infotech’s personalization solutions, including Production Management, Stock Management and Card Lifecycle Management.

The firm worked with Identity Management Systems (IMS) Limited, a subsidiary of Margins Group, on the project.

The President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo has become the first recipient of the new national ID card to signal the start of a massive country-wide registration process to capture the relevant alphanumeric and biometric data of Ghanaian citizens.

“16 million cards during the next 12 months – we are proud to be part of such an ambitious project as the eID card in Ghana,” mentions Sergey Yeliseyev, Business Development Director at X Infotech. “Our software solutions are part of a fully integrated platform that will aim to improve transparency and economic growth in the country.”

“The new multi-functional eID card will provide utmost security and facilities to citizens, faster than ever before. Even their bank accounts will be linked with the new identity document or, for example, when travelling across ECOWAS countries, people will no longer need to bring their passports,” said Moses Baiden, CEO at Margins Group. “In this endeavor, X Infotech is our strategic partner in implementation of personalization solutions. By joining our forces with our X Infotech, we have developed together a unique identity platform that are transforming lives of Ghanaians.”
