As of today, Papilon manages millions of biometric credentials, meeting the most demanding challenges without sacrificing accuracy and flexibility.

What We Do

Papilon manages biometric identification process by maintaining compliant to national and international standards (ANSI/NIST/FBI/INTERPOL); provides governments, law enforcement agencies and commercial enterprises palm and finger print identification, facial recognition and iris recognition systems under the consideration of local needs intertwined with best of the breed technology. Papilon’s algorithms which yield accelerated and accurate biometric data transference amongst institutions, are developed in Turkey, locally manufactured and became available to public utilities at 2012. Along with the Biometric ID Management, Papilon blazed a trail in regards to Border & Immigration Management; creating an innovative preventive security concept in border security by facilitating “Biometric Integrated Automated Gates” at passport control check points.

Multinational Identity Management is one of the fields that Papilon concentrates on because of having deep experience regarding this delicate issue. Due to the unfortunate incidents that cause migration create a chaotic atmosphere.

Managing this complex situation requires more than just implementing systematic tasks; but further ability to provide customized solutions to immigration agencies demands.
