StarTen Development

Using their expertise in identification system development, StarTen has carried out since 1996 highly successful projects in Israel, Ethiopia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Sri Lanka. The company was responsible for the design and implementation of Israel’s first computerised driving licence production system and for a similar system to deal with the production of Romanian identification cards. They have been involved in many other projects that require an expert understanding of positive identification using a number of cutting edge technologies.

In 2002, StarTen was awarded a major project to design and implement a driving licence management system in the Ivory Coast. The success of this project relied heavily on understanding their client’s requirements and awarded StarTen a long-term concession agreement.

An Excellent Track Record

StarTen’s most recent project has seen them working closely with mobile phone company Orange CI in the Ivory Coast to deliver a means of identifying each of their subscribers at the time of SIM activation. The aim of this system is to fight against terrorism activities and the sale of SIM cards on the fly and ensuring all communications across the Orange CI network are secure and traceable.

StarTen’s considerable and continued success is down to working closely with their clients and delivering the most innovative and reliable identification and authentication systems. They have spent years designing, developing and delivering these technologies both in Israel and many other countries.
