To comply with regulations for the credentialing of airport and airline employees and contractors, airports have to undertake complex and time-consuming processes to issue and administer badges or face hefty fines. To help airports of all sizes automate and simplify this process, Genetec Inc. has launched its Security Center Airport Badging Solution (ABS).
The Security Center Airport Badging Solution is designed to simplify the badging process and lower the overheads needed to run a badging department. ABS reduces the need to work with multiple different systems and reduces incompatibility issues.
ABS streamlines and automates background checks within an airport’s unified physical security platform – Genetec™ Security Center. With a design based on standards set forth by each country’s regulatory bodies and specificities from security background vetting services and clearinghouses, Security Center ABS helps airports deliver the required information in the correct format to successfully submit and process each employee application, and meet audit and compliance requirements set by authorities such as regular identity verifications via the Rapback process.
All data collected on each badge applicant is compiled and stored within the system. Customized dashboards are included within Security Center to showcase insights such as real time applicant statuses, and unaccounted for badge percentages so that airport administrators can make more informed decisions, especially when it comes to meeting audit and compliance regulations.
