The Kaduna State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board will be able to enroll more than 8,000 potential pilgrims for Hajj, and eliminate the hassle of multiple registrations from a single person. Kaduna State can also accurately verify each of the pilgrims in attendance at Hajj in Mecca (KSA), the Holy Pilgrimage City of Saudi Arabia. This breakthrough in precise and efficient authentication is a result of using biometric technology from M2SYS, a biometric technology research and development firm.
Kaduna State Nigeria, an established service provider of hitch-free Hajj operations, under the leadership of Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhar MON, will be using M2SYS biometric solution, a easy-to-use fingerprint biometrics system. The software will enable Kaduna to keep a database of records that include every detail related to Hajj, including how many times a pilgrim performed. The biometric fingerprint solution will also allow Kaduna to track and prevent any blacklisted offenders from being registered by fraudulent means. The system is a high-performance fingerprint identification engine that saves time and money, and eliminates the problems associated with low-level SDKs. This achievement is consequent to the support by His Excellency, Architect Namadi Sambo, the Governor of Kaduna State, whose support and encouragement cannot be over emphasized.
"We required an efficient and easy way of monitoring the enrollment of intending pilgrims without duplication or fraud, and eliminate any person not permitted to go for Hajj by law," stated Muhammad Shauibu Umar, Consultant of Kaduna State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board. "We were certain that biometrics was our best bet, and the easy integration and unlimited support from M2SYS made it more convincing."
"Our aim at M2SYS is to offer our integrator partners the shortest and simplest path to biometric software implementation. It has always been our concern to spread biometric fingerprint technology to every corner of the world. With this partnership, we have succeeded in doing so and M2SYS feels very proud to be a part of it," commented Michael Trader, President of M2SYS Technology.
