What Our Clients Say

“For flagship events like MWC Barcelona, the GSMA looks for cutting-edge solutions to not only show technology at its best, but also to support their event security requirements. Regula offers an effective ID reading solution that allows GSMA to be more efficient and supports the improvement of the overall customer experience.”
Wieke Sjahrir
Head of Event Technology at GSMA
”In contrast to a previous search query by radio or phone call, which could take several minutes, the new process only takes a few seconds. The app improves the overall availability of police information and plays a significant role in maintaining domestic security. With the successful launch of the solution, it is now planned to put a total of around 10,000 smartphones into operation in the next few years. And in addition to the "BPOL Document Check" app, several regional forces are already successfully using other apps developed with Secunet supported by Regula SDK in their everyday business.”
