NEXT Biometrics access control products to be distributed in Russia by UniComm


In an effort to accelerate sales in Russia, NEXT Biometrics has appointed UniComm its authorized distributor in the country for NEXT’s access control related products. UniComm provides development and integration support for security and network optimization as well as IoT, cloud and AI solutions for banks, governments, smart cities, and organizations.

The Norwegian biometrics firm noted in its 2019 business update that it was looking to expand its reach and stake in the access control market.

“We are pleased to welcome UniComm to our distributor network and look forward to a strong and successful partnership,” commented Alain Faburel, NEXT Biometrics chief sales and marketing officer.

“Our customers are looking for best-in-class solutions which help them master today`s challenges and stay ahead of the curve,” added Maxim Chembura, UniComm commercial director. “Making use of NEXT Biometrics advanced fingerprint technology enables us to serve this need along with seamless integration and a multitude of successful use cases.”

Last week NEXT Biometrics announced it had raised $18.7M and reported a 34 percent leap in gross margin for 2018. It has also been selected as the supplier of Aadhaar-certified fingerprint readers for use in the World Bank-funded Project on Climate Resilient Agriculture (POCRA).
