MILAN, November 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

ID World 2011, the International Congress on the evolving world of biometrics, identification and security, has presented its ID People Trail Blazer Award to Peter Went, Chief Executive Officer of WCC Smart Search & Match. The award was announced at the 2011 ID World International Congress Award Ceremony Wednesday, November 2nd by Sophie Boyer de la Giroday. The Trail Blazer Award honors pioneering researchers and entrepreneurs whose contributions help the ID community envision what will happen in the coming generations.

"It's an honor to be recognized by ID World and to receive such an inspiring validation for our creativity and vision. I'm even more thrilled to be able to share this award with the rest of my team at WCC," said Peter Went.

According to ID World, Peter Went has received the award for playing a pivotal role in commoditizing large identification projects in both government and private sector markets. "With the introduction of the ELISE platform in the ID market, WCC revolutionized the ID market in several ways. Firstly, by integrating multiple modalities, speed and accuracy of biometric identification has improved substantially," said Sophie Boyer de la Giroday.
