NEXT Biometrics partners with M-Tech on biometric cards for India

 

NEXT Biometrics announced it is partnering with M-Tech Innovations to develop and deploy biometric card solutions for India. M-Tech is an accredited and certified RuPay, MasterCard and VISA card manufacturer and one of the largest smart card producers in India. The collaboration will feature NEXT`s sensor technology and will focus on contact-based and dual interface biometric smart card solutions to address current and evolving banking card standards.

“We are very pleased to announce the collaboration with M-Tech and the strong growth potential that this partnership offers,” said Alain Faburel, NEXT Biometrics’ chief sales and marketing officer. “As outlined at the January 2019 Business Update, we are in the process of building a sustainable network with leading players in the smart card ecosystem to commercialize biometric dual interface technology in the banking sector and beyond.”

“NEXT`s flexible sensor technology offers proven high security and accuracy levels,” added Vijay M. Gandhi, chairman and managing director of M-Tech Innovations Ltd. “This is particularly important for the high standards demanded in the payment sector and paramount for a secure and consistently positive user experience. The partnership with NEXT underlines our commitment to highest quality standards and continuous innovation.”

NEXT began expanding its operations in India last August to support the company’s increased activity in the country. Faburel said at the time that “We’re firmly committed to growing our business in India and are taking a number of important steps to enhance our presence in the country in order to best serve our customers there.” NEXT’s team in India is led by Crossmatch, Safran Morpho and Gemalto veteran Ameya Bhagwat, and also includes Sanjith Sundaram, who spent five years with the Unique Identification Authority of India.

In its January 2019 Business Update the company noted that its strategic priorities for 2019 include a central focus on producing biometric payment cards.
