Accenture and Vision-Box: Services overview

Bringing together experience, scale and technology to offer end-to-end border management solutions.


Today border management agencies face the challenges of enhancing the customer experience while safeguarding visitors and citizens, enforcing laws and promoting trade and commerce. Globalization and increasing border traffic have put pressure on border agencies to improve efficiency and speed.

  • Identify travelers and cargo accurately and consistently

  • Adopt a customer-centric view

  • Link information across the enterprise

  • Provide customized information

  • Develop a virtual border

  • Become an intelligence-driven enterprise

  • Adopt an enterprise governance model
