BIO-key reports interest in its fingerprint solutions from healthcare organizations
BIO-key International reports that it has received orders from ten healthcare organizations for its fingerprint biometric solutions during the second quarter of 2017. The orders represent approximately $250,000 in revenue from a range of new and existing customers.
The organizations, which include hospitals, eye care centers, medical device manufacturers, medical labs and group practices, are utilizing BIO-key solutions to address online security concerns, improve workflow and meet multifactor compliance requirements.
“BIO-key is achieving particularly strong sales traction in healthcare, expanding beyond our initial success with large hospital customers. This growth is being driven by regulatory compliance and supported by the workplace convenience that fingerprint biometrics provide,” stated Mike DePasquale, Chairman & CEO, BIO-key. “Saving healthcare professionals precious minutes each day is good for patient care and the bottom line.”
Mr. DePasquale added, “We are finding that end users, such as nurses, physicians and administrators, genuinely appreciate the ease of one touch biometric authentication versus the frustration associated with other sign-in methods. Because professionals in highly regulated industries such as healthcare are required to use multifactor authentication dozens of times per day, BIO-key is emerging as ‘the’ ideal solution to meet this requirement while also enhancing workflow efficiency. Saving healthcare professionals precious minutes each day is good for patient care and the bottom line.”
Earlier this month BIO-key revealed that it was selected by a global financial institution to deliver an initial 5,000 SideTouch compact fingerprint readers for the firm’s Windows platform worldwide.
