WCC Group launches HERMES Passenger Data Gateway solution
Utrecht – NL, Match 15 2023. WCC Group, a leading provider of passenger screening and rule-based targeting software (Advance Passenger Information System, or APIS), has announced the official launch of its HERMES Passenger Data Gateway (PDG) solution. With this, WCC expands its offering and enhances its support for governments around the world aiming to secure their borders and protect their citizens.
The HERMES Passenger Data Gateway offers full control over obtaining, managing, and forwarding of Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Records (PNR) passenger data. While alternative commercial service providers offer gateway services that act as a “black box,” the main differentiator for the HERMES PDG is that governments have full control over the flow of data, the data quality and the associated connections. The best feature being the passenger centric view where the HERMES PDG can merge data from API and PNR into one record. The solution provides analytics on message timeliness and quality per transport operator while offering integration with the service providers of transport operator scheduling.
In addition, the HERMES PDG integrates seamlessly with the HERMES APIS Passenger Screening and Targeting software to provide optimum insights in passenger data and border security. It also fully supports the more advanced Interactive API (iAPI) standard with direct connections to airlines’ Departure Control Systems (DCS) according to international standards set by the WCO/IATA/ICAO, allowing governments to stop unwanted travelers from boarding.
A public-facing portal also allows for the manual input of passenger data over the internet when necessary (such as for private jets, charter flights, maritime journeys, etc.).
And finally, WCC’s PDG solution distributes the raw or transformed passenger data to all national authorities that require passenger data based on national legislation.
“Our new solution, the HERMES Passenger Data Gateway, is an end-to-end solution that is set to revolutionize the flow of passenger data through the enhancement of the collection and distribution of passenger data. We are excited to see how governments use PDG to deliver better quality data to their competent authorities in a far more transparent way, to help realize their smart border management strategy.”
Roelof Troost, Chief Operating Officer at WCC Group
In order to support as many governments around the globe as possible, WCC will also offer connections to APIS systems other than HERMES APIS Passenger Screening. At WCC, we believe in an open ecosystem with affordable software for every country, where we as a company ensure the quality of our software and the delivery of continuous improvements and upgrades.
