VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 09, 2017) - For the 27th year, the BC Chapter of the American Marketing Association (BCAMA) is excited to bring its annual marketing conference to Vancouver. The VISION Conference returns on April 4, 2017 at the BMO Theatre Centre, in Vancouver. Focused on the planning and creative thinking that is now required to achieve innovative outcomes, the Conference is a one day, thought leadership and interactive learning event. "Innovative products and services are like the proverbial iceberg," said Andrew Sharpe, President-Elect of the BCAMA. "The vast majority of what it took to bring it to life is below the surface, in the form of creative exploration and thinking from a different perspective." This year marks a milestone in the city: the creation of an entire conference dedicated to the art and science of marketing innovation. With innovation being the buzzword in Vancouver's exploding startup scene, the conference is at the intersection of strategic planning and open-minded exploration -- that ultimately results in visionary outcomes. It will provide an overview of what the future might hold and prepare individuals and organizations to adapt to a culture of innovative thinking by adhering to specific procedures and letting go of existing paradigms for doing things. "It's one thing to be aware of what the future might have in store, but it's a whole other thing to know how to use this knowledge to create the innovations of tomorrow. This type of future-forward thinking is what the VISION Conference is all about. It's the 'aha' that precedes the 'ta-dah,'" Sharpe elaborated. Conference registration is now open. To take advantage of early bird pricing and save up to $100, register before Feb 19, 2017.

Seeking a way to expedite the processing and issuance of nearly 200.000 driver licenses per year and aiming to modernize their services, the Lithuanian State Enterprise Regitra turned to Vision-Box™, the leading provider of electronic identity solutions, and ATEA, the leading supplier of IT infrastructure and system integration in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Together, they deployed a full-fledged, state-of-the-art identity management infrastructure designed to facilitate the enrollment of citizens’ biometric data, improve the quality level of data capture and management, as well as enhance personal data security, placing Lithuania on the leading edge of biometric identity document issuance innovation. To replace the previous bulky and slow legacy photo booths, Regitra chose vb e-pass™ kiosks and desktops touchpoints to provide a completely renewed interface method with the citizen. With a much smaller footprint, these integrated enrollment stations, used in both self-service and assisted mode, have brought a new look, feel, and visibility to Regitra offices, without impacting available space and offering better conditions, optimization, and efficiency for citizens and operators. Additionally, the touchpoints are resolving long-standing image quality issues of obsolete systems, with the vb e-pass™ kiosks and desktops capturing each applicant’s face biometric image and digital signature according to the highest international standards, in just a few seconds. Adding to the effectiveness of the system, the vb e-pass™ kiosks and desktops are deployed jointly with vb e-pass™ backdrop units. These intelligently illuminated screens are used to achieve a uniformly lit background, boosting the quality of facial image captures and further guaranteeing full compliance with ICAO guidelines for a perfect face image capture colorless background. The Vision-Box™ track record of more than 3000 Identity Management solutions deployed in over 30 countries and responsible for around 50 Million biometric enrollment processes for electronic documents was essential in delivering the new system’s diverse goals. The new Regitra solution also benefited from Vision-Box™’s renowned experience in human-machine interaction with: The new solutions have so far produced tangible results of significantly decreased applicant processing times; vastly reduced queuing lines; and increased document and associated processes security. Saulius Šuminas, Regitra deputy director, “Due to Vision-Box™ provided solution we are observing great improvement in driving license issuing times and customer satisfaction. Vision-Box™ biometric enrollment solution is very intuitive for our customers and a very powerful tool for our employees. As being state company, one of the main success indicator is customer satisfaction and with the Vision-Box™ solution we are able to achieve it.” Behind the user-centric touchpoints is the vb e-pass™ enrollment software suite, a robust platform managed by Regitra, and integrating the entire national enrollment infrastructure. The platform is responsible for gathering all applicants’ biometric and biographical data captured at the enrollment stations, as well as automatically assessing and validating the quality of each capture in compliance with all international requirements such as ICAO. The correct enrollment and consolidation of the data is absolutely pivotal for further document personalization and life cycle management. Built upon a Privacy-by-Design principle, the vb e-pass™ enrollment software suite offers a full protection and cross-matching of information, guaranteeing the safeguarding of a citizen’s personal information and other critical data through all the stages leading to document production. Rimas Kvaselis, ATEA Project Group manager “It was a very interesting challenge to find a better way for all drivers to get their driver licenses. The new system brought additional knowledge for Regitra employees. Well prepared trainings managed to prepare employees in a short period of time. After having fully adopted the system, the driving license issuing process is much more streamlined and customer satisfaction is noticeable.” Jean-François Lennon, Vice-President for Global Business Development & Sales of Vision-Box highlights that, “Regitra is heavily committed to modernizing the services they offer their citizens. Having a driver’s license is life changing for most people and Vision-Box™ is happy to be able to provide the best experience to applicants from the start at Regitra offices.
