Invixium opens U.S. headquarters and hires staff for global expansion of touchless biometrics
Canadian biometric company Invixium is scaling its business across North America by opening a U.S. headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut, and expanding its sales and marketing teams, the company announced.
By opening the new U.S. office, Invixium aims to meet the high demand for its biometric systems, which the company says were already popular before the COVID-19 pandemic started. Norwalk seemed the best location after the company’s win in the 2018 VentureClash competition in Connecticut.
“The Americas represent an essential region for Invixium’s growth trajectory,” said Shiraz Kapadia, CEO and President of Invixium, in a prepared statement. “Invixium USA provides a dedicated base in a prime location from which we can better serve the needs of new and existing customers. Combined with our recent introduction of innovative touchless and temperature detection biometric devices, this expansion uniquely positions Invixium to provide businesses with the safety and security technologies they need right now.”
Invixium’s global headquarters is located in Toronto, easily accessible from the Norwalk office. The U.S. team will be involved in the launch of flagship biometric device IXM Titan, now equipped with an Enhancement Kit that contains a thermographic camera to detect body temperature with up to plus or minus 0.5 degrees Celsius (1 degree Fahrenheit) accuracy.
IXM Web includes a new feature called IXM Health which optimizes workflows should high temperature be detected. The company’s IXM Touch 2, a multimodal biometric device, can now be enhanced with facial recognition for a touchless experience.
Just weeks ago, Invixium announced it had secured $3 million in funding to address new demand for touchless biometrics with temperature screening.
