Our client

Solution
We built a WordPress, CMS-based responsive website that supports multiple languages. This presentation website enables the marketing of the DiGiConsul solution suite.
The project team – that developed the mobile apps, the presentation website and the Manager and Applicant interface websites – included 5 developers and a machine learning specialist.

The solution’s benefits include:

  • Accessibility in home country capitals, which enables onshore consular operations with lower back-office operational costs
  • A Manager website, the interface for the consulate employees who analyse the visa requests
  • Authentication of applicant statements with localised cross-referencing to host country databases
  • Consulate capacity planning and management for seasonal variations and efficient resource allocation
  • Secure, video conferencing of remote, initial applicant interviews
  • eVisa issuance through state-of-the-art technology benefiting tourism and local economies for the long term

For consular offices, DiGiConsul offers the following features:

  • applicant data validation
  • biometrics & facial recognition
  • video conference calls and in-consulate appointments scheduling
  • bank account verification
  • electronic filing of documents
  • OpenCV – one of the most popular libraries for computer vision tasks, was used for both mobile apps
  • The gov.uk API – to validate the companies that the applicants claimed to work for
  • faster and more accurate application processing
