A press release dated 15 January seen by APA Monday said Gainde 2000 was created in 2002 as a public-private partnership (PPP) to develop and run the ORBUS one-stop shop with a view to simplifying the formalities of international trade.
Gainde 2000 was at the CES Las Vegas international trade fair until 12 January to showcase its research project Orbus Sign, at a very advanced stage in its design at its research and development workshops.
Orbus Sign is a digital voice signature solution that allows users the option of signing electronically by pronouncing a word or expression.
Conceived for signing one or multiple electronic documents by voice recognition (contracts, invoices, etc.), Orbus Sign integrates biometric software capable of recording a unique 'voiceprint', comparable to a fingerprint or retina pattern, since there are no two identical voices. Once the voiceprint has been recorded, it can be used to verify the identity of a person in the next signature process.
Daniel Sarr, project manager of Orbus, said participating at CES 2018 "is an opportunity for Gainde 2000 to showcase its project, and test the concept at this international temple of innovation by demonstrating the capabilities of African countries to contribute to emerging technologies."
Gainde 2000 is a leading edge IT Senegalese company specialized in trade efficiency and paperless public formalities. It was established in 2002 as a public-private partnership (PPP) with the mandate to develop and operate the Orbus Single Window services for facilitating foreign trade formalities.
Gainde 2000's core business is to design, implement and run state-of-the-art software solutions for governments, port communities and businesses.
According to the release, the company is also an African leader in paperless formalities, digital security and e-payment solutions with platforms implemented in 5 different countries and consulting services delivered at an international level.
