BI2, Grabba to develop and offer mobile biometric identification, data capture and verification devices
BI2 Technologies and Grabba International Pty Ltd announced they have signed a joint licensing and marketing agreement to develop and offer mobile biometric identification, data capture and verification devices.
Under the agreement terms, BI2 will grant a license to its patented (U.S. Patent 8,719,584) Mobile Recognition and Information System (MORIS) technology to Grabba.
As a result of this partnership, Grabba will integrate, manufacture and offer BI2’s MORIS iris and facial biometric technologies as an option with its mobile data capture and verification devices.
“We look forward to having MORIS ‘Grabba-ized’,” said Sean G. Mullin, president and CEO of BI2 Technologies. “MORIS’ patented, multimodal biometric identification technologies are a perfect expansion of Grabba’s existing capabilities that currently offer up to 8 different data capture and verification technologies in the one device that is available for multiple mobile platforms. This is a true innovation in the world of mobile biometric identification – there is simply no other mobile solution like this in the world.”
By combining BI2 and Grabba technologies, nearly every vertical market will be able to provide the ability to identify individuals using patented mobile biometric capabilities on their existing computing and communications devices via their current networks.
“The addition of BI2’s patented and award winning mobile iris and facial biometric identification technologies to our industry-leading suite of data capture and verification devices is groundbreaking,” said Frank Downes, president and CEO of Grabba International. “We can now offer 10 different modalities including integrated mobile, fingerprint, iris and facial biometric identification technologies on our one-of-a-kind device that works with multiple Smartphones, Tablets and PDAs.”
Using their respective distribution and reseller partners, Grabba and BI2 Technologies will be jointly marketing their combined products around the world.
