Ingram Micro Canada has become the exclusive Canadian distribution partner of Invixium’s IXM line of biometric fingerprint access control products.
“Through the new deal, Ingram Micro Canada – a global technology and supply chain services provider – will distribute Invixium’s full line of biometric access control solutions to channel partners throughout Canada. “
The partnership will help to expand Invixium’s Canadian market reach, enabling channel partners to more easily market, sell and deploy the biometric solutions to business-to-business channels, such as government, education, enterprise and small-to-medium business.
The Canadian-manufactured Invixium IXM product line uses biometric fingerprint sensing technologies that allow for multi-factor authentication with PINs and access cards.
“Our new relationship with Invixium broadens our physical security portfolio and provides channel partners with a proven and flexible solution that offers their end-users an easy to use and highly secure and advanced access control system,” said Suzanne Macdonald, director of sales at Ingram Micro Canada. “Physical security represents a fast-growing, converging market opportunity for channel partners, and is a key area of focus and specialization for Ingram Micro.”
The companies are also currently working on plans to expand the exclusive distribution partnership on a global basis.
“Biometrics is becoming main-stream rapidly,” says Shiraz Kapadia, CEO of Invixium. “The market is primed to upgrade from traditional access control methods to biometric IP based security products and that presents a sizable opportunity to channel partners in Canada and worldwide.”
