Integrated Biometrics Five-O scanner sales start strong
Integrated Biometrics has received orders for more than 2,000 units of its Five-O mobile fingerprint scanner in the first month of its general availability, the company announced Tuesday.
Initially unveiled in late April, the Five-O is an FBI certified FAP50 10-finger scanner which has a rugged design and is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. Integrated Biometrics said in the announcement that it considers the sales an enthusiastic market validation, considering new product success in the market is measured in hundreds of devices.
“Mobile enrollment and verification provide the must-have capabilities for law enforcement, border control, and commercial identity services,” says Stephen Thies, Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Biometrics. “Our Five-0 is engineered to be the most mobile, reliable, and easy to use 10-finger product available.”
The product is designed to meet the needs of integrators around the world developing biometric solutions to enable identification at the point of contact without committing to fixed-location installations. Initial customers include several United States Federal agencies and companies, as well as identity management providers in the UK, the EU, Japan, Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada. Integrated Biometrics has expanded production capacity to meet the demand.
“We combined our vision and technological leadership with a deep commitment to listening to the market when we produced Five-0,” continues Thies. “We are grateful to our customers for confirming the value in our approach.”
In 2016, Inc. magazine ranked Integrated Biometrics number 965 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
