(May 25, 2023) – Panini, a global payments technology provider, is participating in Identity Week Europe, defined as the world’s largest and most important identity event, taking place in Amsterdam in June.

This will be the Turin-based Company’s first participation in an in-presence edition of Identity Week, a very important step considering the centrality of the new BioCred platform for Panini’s future in the secure identity applications space.

BioCred is an unprecedented hub-like platform featuring biometrics (fingerprint scan), QR code and NFC reading, and electronic signature capabilities. BioCred aims to reduce fraud and improve service for customers visiting physical branches – within financial services as well as in other industries. Panini's patented process generates a unique, encrypted credential that the enrolled customer will retain control of, thus removing privacy and safety concerns on their end as well as on the Institution’s. At the same time, the device uses a consolidation approach to combine a number of branch-relevant functions within the same compact footprint, optimizing ergonomics and cable management and allowing savings on expenditure and maintenance.

During the event, a demo will show how a document verification phase can seamlessly tie into the generation of a secure biometric credential during in-presence customer onboarding. Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience enrollment and authentication with BioCred, and win prizes, via the SecureLottery promotional initiative.

Panini's participation in this event acquires particular significance as it has determined to support as a sponsor the research of the Digital Identity Observatory of the Politecnico di Milano School of Management - listed among this edition’s speakers with the presence of its Director, Giorgia Dragoni in the "Verification for wallets" panel (Biometrics contents stream).

Identity Week Europe 2023 will take place at RAI Exhibition Center, Amsterdam (NL), on 13-14 June, 2023 and Panini will be exhibiting in booth 358.
