"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.
