Keesing Technologies is expanding its market presence to China. Recently, the company has entered into a partnership with Resonant Ltd. to service this market. The expansion is part of the company’s strategy to become the global leader in ID document verification and identity proofing.
The partnership with Resonant enables Keesing to support local challenges and accelerate the introduction of digital identity solutions and technology in the Chinese law enforcement, border control, immigration and government sectors.
Resonant is the leader in the distribution of forensic, security and law enforcement products in China. They will market Keesing’s flagship products, such as Keesing Documentchecker and Keesing AuthentiScan, for ID document verification and identity proofing in the region. The government market in China is changing rapidly, especially when it comes to ID document verification and (self-) identification. Chinese Immigration announced the introduction of the e-ID. A digital identity providing every citizen the possibility to identify himself to obtain access to various government services. “As we are committed to meet the needs of Chinese customers, the timing of our partnership with Keesing is perfect. It enables us to respond to Chinese market challenges and demands regarding reliable ID verification for, among others, travel, border control and government services”, said Resonant’s Technical Director, Peng Yijun.
By teaming with Resonant, Keesing will be better able to understand and address the local market needs. “Resonant has a great understanding of the Chinese market. Their resources and professional experience within the region offer us an excellent way to set foot in China with our ID verification solutions and to start new projects in the country”, explained Mike Krechting, Managing Director at Keesing Technologies.
Earlier this year Keesing Technologies launched the Chinese version of Documentchecker – Identity Documents; the world’s most comprehensive reference database for ID documents. Documentchecker is built with flexible architecture enabling organisations to quickly implement it in their daily operations. Keesing’s premium solution for automated ID document verification – AuthentiScan – will be introduced to the Chinese market towards the end of the year. AuthentiScan is extremely suitable for various government purposes and processes that need to be more secure and streamlined. “Keesing is looking forward to a successful partnership that enhances Resonant’s end-to-end solutions with trustworthy ID verification capabilities and further strengthens Keesing’s position in the Chinese market”, said Keesing’s Managing Director.
