Credence ID, a leading provider of mobile biometric and credential platforms announced that it has been selected by Fleet Technologies to provide mobile biometric solutions throughout Nigeria.

The identity of an exam-taker is crucial to the ongoing integrity of these tests and the associated credentials that go along with passing of an exam”, said Bruce Hanson, President & CEO of Credence ID.
Examinations in Nigeria will begin at the end of August 2015 and the mobile biometric devices will be in place at each of the 1,000 locations.
“The Credence ID devices are perfectly suited for this type of project. They are highly mobile and provide very long battery life which is important in these often remote and challenging environments. Their platform and included SDK are critical for the rapid application development necessary for this type of project”, said Kunle Akinniran, Managing Director of Fleet Technologies.
