MobiCom simplifies contracts in Mongolia with fingerprint authentication

Links with KHUR, Mongolia's state information exchange system

TOKYO, 13 September 2018 -- (ACN Newswire) -- MobiCom Corporation, a subsidiary of KDDI CORPORATION, has recently introduced fingerprint authentication enabled by compatibility between the KHUR state information exchange system and MobiCom's sales management system.

MobiCom is the first telecommunications service provider to establish compatibility with the KHUR state information exchange system. It enables MobiCom to provide more than 100 service offerings to Mongolians, who are able to complete the personal ID authentication process using fingerprint verification only, without the need to present an ID card.

The KHUR state information exchange system also allows MobiCom to save the time and efforts expended in sales outlets and back-office operations managing customer ID card information, in favour of constructing the necessary data wharehousing facilities.

KHUR state information exchange system was developed as an integrated national population database managed by government authorities for registration, taxation, social insurance, and other services for improved utility and transparency. Use of an open-source platform ensures connectivity for private-sector firms that meet compliance standards.

Issued free of charge, the Mongolian national ID card is required for public procedures, such as voting. The cards include personal information such as digital photograph and fingerprints, which is securely stored to an embedded microprocessor. By linking its sales management system to KHUR, MobiCom can use information integrated with KHUR to enable personal ID authentication through fingerprint verification alone.

By establishing links with KHUR, MobiCom will be able not only to improve its service quality, but also to aspire to provide new telecommunications and finance services, thus contributing to the development of Mongolia.
