Vision-Box® S.A., leader in automated border control systems and electronic identity solutions, has supplied and supported the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee in the deployment of ABC e-Gates in Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which recently celebrated the passage of its millionth traveler, since going live.

More than 1,000,000 travelers have crossed the border at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol airport using the Vision-Box de facto industry standard for ABC e-Gates; vb i-match®.

As part of a consortium, which also included Accenture, Vision-Box was chosen as the partner to supply the ABC e-Gates that today total 36 units, located in the Departure 3, Arrival 3 and transit area between Schengen and non-Schengen. Vision-Box was also responsible for the gates transaction manager platform which controls how they operate, define the associated business rules and border checks processes.

The main benefits delivered by vb i-match® include:

  • Better border control through automating the process and using the most advance technological innovations in biometric verification.
  • Empowerment of border control agents by allowing them to focus on added-value tasks that cannot be performed by machines and by supporting in the decision making process
  • Ensuring a better passenger experience and simplifying the workflow

Miguel Leitmann, Senior Vice President of Vision-Box® S.A., highlights the large number of passengers that passed through the ABC e-Gates in such a short period of time, a unique feat in Europe, and reinforces the idea that this is the beginning of a new paradigm shift being witnessed in airports worldwide. “Border control today has evolved to a point where we can clearly improve the passenger experience, not only by facilitating the border crossing process but also by making it as simple as possible, while still maintaining the security level required by border control agencies.
