Aware’s large product portfolio, experienced engineering staff, and deep subject matter expertise lend themselves to the delivery of software engineering services, enabling us to provide high-impact software consultation, design, and customization services towards biometric solution proposal and delivery. Because our offerings fill a wide spectrum—from COTS tools to fully customized solutions—our services and support can be scaled to fit whatever tasks are optimally outsourced by our customer. Our role is not set in stone; it might change from project to project or even over the course of a particular engagement. This flexibility is a key benefit of working with Aware, giving customers latitude to optimize their approach, mitigate project risks, and focus resources on a project’s biggest challenges without sacrificing attention to detail. Our work plans are designed to complement the capabilities of our customers to achieve on-time, on-budget delivery of a high-quality, high-performance system.
Areas of expertise that differentiate Aware’s software engineering services are as follows:
Aware has developed a wealth of knowledge and best practices from years of experience deploying complex biometric enrollment, identification and authentication software into real world environments. Our Biometric Services Platform (BioSP) provides a modular, configurable, scalable, and secure service-oriented platform to develop custom enterprise solutions. Astra provides a highly scalable cluster computing platform for large-scale fingerprint, face recognition, and iris recognition and authentication solutions.
Aware COTS software components often interface with other standard and non-standard software products and platforms. Aware can quickly configure our software to properly interface with a wide range of other system components.
Customers often have unique requirements and must-haves that can be key to solution success. Aware can help customers quickly demonstrate, develop, and incorporate these custom features, differentiating their offering in an impactful way.
Aware provides several biometric applications, and we customize them according to specific customer requirements. For example, our Universal Registration Client (URC) biometric enrollment workstation application can be modified to reflect the workflow or functional requirements of a particular end user.
Aware offers comprehensive technical assistance and support to developers, acting as an on-demand extension of development engineering staff. Aware can help a development team to learn, utilize, and integrate Aware software solution components into their own application and workflow to maximize the utility of the features and functionality of Aware software, improving and differentiating their own offerings in the process.
The software installation phase is a critical moment of the solution implementation. A smooth launch helps ensure overall project success. Aware can provide crucial expertise towards problem resolution during this short but important time.
The effectiveness of a solution is impacted if not properly utilized by the end user. Aware can assist with training with in-person seminars, formal training, train-the-trainer programs, and extensive documentation to share industry and Aware best practices.
Aware software engineering personnel are experienced in delivering biometrics software for a variety of applications. Aware SMEs work hand-in-hand with customers to develop proposals and solutions that translate technical, financial, and operational requirements into a comprehensive solution. Aware is a contributor to the biometric standards developed by NIST, INCITS, and ISO, and actively participates in NIST, M1, and SC 37 meetings and document development; Aware brings this important and time sensitive expertise to its projects.
