Global Brain (GB) has invested in GTRIIP Global, Inc. (GTRIIP), a provider of biometric authentication technology and related solutions in Singapore and throughout the rest of Asia, through its KDDI Open Innovation Fund (KOIF).

To make document-less authentication a standard practice in society in order to reduce check-in times, GTRIIP has introduced a solution mainly in five-star hotels in Singapore and Macau. This solution enables personal authentication with just a passport photo that the user has uploaded to its smartphone in advance and a photo of the user’s face taken with said smartphone upon arriving at the hotel, thus allowing the user to check in without going through the front desk.

This solution is not limited to hotels; it can be applied to a wide range of locations such as offices, data centers, and other areas that require personal authentication, including ticket authentication at event halls.

GB has highly evaluated its deep knowledge in hospitality industry, unique technological, deep skilled management team and its high growth potential. GB starts supporting GTRIIP’s growth with leveraging GB’s network, resource and also seeking potential business alliance with KDDI Group.
