WCC Deploys API/PNR System for Ports in Northern Europe
HERMES – WCC’s API/PNR solution – successfully used at airports worldwide as well as seaports
Utrecht – NL, July 1, 2020. WCC’s unique API/PNR solution is already used by border control agencies worldwide. We have today announced the go-live deployment of HERMES at seaports in a major northern European country.
HERMES is a flexible Advanced Passenger Information (API)/ Passenger Name Records (PNR) software solution for processing passenger data. WCC developed HERMES to specifically meet the security needs of all law enforcement agencies, regardless of size. We therefore designed HERMES so that it is fast to install, and easy to use and maintain. And as a result, costs are lower.
Successfully used at airports worldwide, and also at seaports in Europe, HERMES runs on WCC ELISE ID Platform Smart Search and Match technology. As such, it is a future-proof solution that not only supports API/PNR, but Interactive API (iAPI) too.
The unique combination of our ELISE ID Platform and HERMES software means border control agencies or Passenger Information Units (PIU) can rapidly screen and match passengers against national and international watch lists .As a result, they can easily assess the risk of each passenger against predefined targets.
Because of its fast response time, the HERMES API/PNR solution is ideal for seaport borders handling vessels with short crossing times.
“Airport and Seaport Border Control Agencies using our ELISE and HERMES software solution are leveraging WCC’s extensive experience in air passenger screening. Until now, this has been the focus of border control agencies,” said Jan Jensen, WCC CEO.
“Nowadays, countries are increasingly aware that checks at their sea borders are equally important. WCC offers a fast and reliable solution for both scenarios,” added Roelof Troost, Identity and Security BU VP at WCC.
