NovaTeqni developing blockchain attendance solution in Africa

05/10/17

NovaTeqni plans to develop a blockchain version of a biometric Farmers Management System it has developed for Malawi, but this time for a so-far un-named country.

Representatives of the country flew to South Africa to see a demonstration of the Farmers Management System in operation and requested a formal proposal submitted as soon as possible.

 The Farmers Management System originally launched in Malawi, includes government quality biometrics, fixed offices, wireless and land line communications, cloud based computing, and mobile biometrics systems.  

Farmers were issued secure contactless smart cards containing biometrics data to allow instant identification. The system contains administrative functionality such as financial reporting and crop related reporting which led to an improvement in efficiency and capability within the important farming sector 

The new blockchain based system will be customizable to work for different standard and non-standard product applications such as Know Your Client, student registration, access control, time and attendance, health plans, driver’s licences, voter validation, voter registration, and money transfers.
