Zerco Offers Secure ID Card Systems for Corporate America & Immigrant Workers
Washington, DC May 21, 2007 – Zerco Systems, the Official Technology Advisor to The Latino Coalition (TLC), said the comprehensive immigration reform legislation before Congress is an important step in securing America and that the Zerco Identification Card System (Z-ID Cards), with its turn-key biometric identifier solution, offers “stand alone” versatility to provide tamper resistant ID for immigrants and employers in Corporate America.
John A. Niotti-Soltesz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zerco Systems International, Inc., said, “The Z-ID Cards System, with vast secure optical memory, can help generate a secure business environment for workers and companies throughout Corporate America.”
“The Zerco turn-key integrated biometric ID management solution has the authentication functionality in place now to verify the millions of Permanent Resident Green Cards of immigrant workers, and as stand-alone systems can provide employers with verifiable information about hired workers,” he said.
Congress is considering comprehensive immigration reform, with a variety of measures including a focus on helping American businesses gain access to immigrant workers with skills they seek.
Niotti-Soltesz added, “Employers can’t afford to wait for the Government to address the technology protocols. Uncertain political action should no longer be a barrier to action. The technology solution exists to address the dilemma facing employers and Zerco is ready to provide Corporate America with a self-contained biometric Employee Worker Identity Card solution.”
Niotti-Soltesz said, “Zerco has earned a strong track-record working with government and private sector technology integrators. For more than a decade, we focused on issues from secure passports and secure ID permanent resident visas to border crossing ID cards and related areas to help secure America.”
He added, “Comprehensive immigration reform, such as advocated by The Latino Coalition, will lead to a more secure America, strengthened the U.S. economy and broadened our tax base. Zerco can provide secure identification for millions of legal immigrant workers and their employers to build business to the best spirit of America and benefit of the U.S. economy and society.”
Zerco utilizes the most advanced biometrics technology available with vast optical card memory capacity featuring access protected information based on Zerco’s proprietary algorithms and technology, with instantaneous on-site information using Zerco reader capability for a variety of security and information solutions for business and government.
Under the leadership of Hector V. Barreto, Chairman of The Latino Coalition and former Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration, and TLC President Robert De Posada, TLC monitors public policy at local, state and federal levels to help build bridges of understanding throughout America, where over 41 million Latinos represent 14 per cent of the U.S. population. TLC is the national advocate of business, economic and social development of Hispanics in America.
Niotti-Soltesz said, “Zerco is proud to help build a stronger America as part of TLC’s comprehensive immigration reform initiatives, part of which are focused on empowering companies with a viable identification system for workers.”
Zerco, based in Brookfield, Ohio, is a developer and integrator of proprietary optical memory card technology and biometric verification-based ID systems for homeland security and healthcare, with ID management solutions for government, Corporate America and others concerned about security and protected information, both domestically and internationally.

On behalf of TLC, Niotti-Soltesz said Zerco’s initial work will focus on two pilot programs utilizing its proprietary optical card technology in the development of worker identification cards and health cards.
Zerco advises TLC about best technology solutions for its comprehensive immigration reform efforts.
Niotti-Soltesz said, “Initially, Zerco will conduct two important pilot programs through the TLC. We expect the first program to get underway and focus on the visitor worker ID challenges we face in America. The second program is expected to begin work to initiate a comprehensive health card ID system using Zerco’s proprietary optical card and card reader technology.”
Niotti-Soltesz added, “Through the TLC’s effort to promote comprehensive immigration reform, we will address the need for a biometric optical card to provide adequate identification to address illegal worker problems affecting companies and individuals.”
He noted, “Through TLC and its Corporate America and other members and sponsors, Zerco will be technology advisor on health care initiatives that affect workers, especially in Hispanic communities in Southern Border States.”
Zerco Systems’ optical card technology has a wide range of important applicability. In security, the multi-dimensional and high flexible Zerco Systems software and hardware can be of significant use in monitoring borders and protecting harbors. In healthcare, the vast storage capacity of the Zerco Health-eCard meets the needs of providing a personalized single source medical record for all Americans.
Zerco Systems has many corporate alliances, which have included being a subcontractor of Anteon International Corporation, a General Dynamics company, in connection with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) initiative to identify persons entering the U.S. along southern borders. In the past, Zerco Systems also has teamed with the Computer Sciences Corporation relating to Department of Homeland Security airport, seaport and border security.
