Kimaldi, Elyctis strengthen partnership to grow biometric ID reader presence in new markets
Since 2012, Elyctis ID Box One biometric readers have been part of Kimaldi’s product portfolio, as the two have jointly developed large-scale projects over the past couple of years. Elyctis readers read multiple forms of IDs in various reading situations, including ID cards, ePassports, driving licenses, voter cards, healthcare cards and age license cards.
The readers support all lifecycle phases: enrolment, reading, control, home reading and mobile reading. They can be embedded in another device, used as desktop readers, as portable readers, or fitted as an add-on on existing kiosks.
“We now have many resellers working with Elyctis products. This capillarity brings us many projects, in different vertical markets. In addition, we believe that new European directives will increase the needs for reliable and convenient ID readers such as those manufactured by Elyctis,” said Joaquim Garcia, CEO of Kimaldi, in a prepared statement.
Under the partnership, the two companies now want to expand to other markets in Portugal, Russia, Germany and Latin America.
“We have been very happy to work with Kimaldi, which, thanks to their expertise and market presence, has allowed us to deliver our readers for significant projects across all their market areas. With the expansion of our partnership, we are confident we will be able to participate in even more business in all regions,” said Alexandre Joly, CEO of Elyctis, in a prepared statement.
Last year, Kimaldi was named by Suprema its 2019 Partner of the Year, recognizing its excellence in delivering major customer wins and new product sales.
