Next Biometrics to supply sensors for 6,000 biometric payment terminals for African national bank
Next Biometrics has received a follow-on order of 6,000 fingerprint sensors from partner Newland Payment Technology to integrate them with payment terminals for an African national bank.
The PIV-certified FAP20 biometric sensors order is an extension of a partnership announced near the beginning of 2020. Under the deal Newland purchased an undisclosed quantity of One Touch 2000 large-size FAP20 fingerprint sensors for integration into biometric payment terminals to support financial inclusion in Africa.
The order is the result of close collaboration between the two companies to promote the terminals for financial inclusion projects on the continent.
“We are pleased that our collaboration with Newland Payment Technology has resulted in additional business with a financial institution in Africa. This order demonstrates that our FAP20 sensors are well recognized by both our business partners and payment authorities and is a proof point of our strategy to grow with high-quality partners.” says Peter Heuman, CEO of NEXT Biometrics.
Next Biometrics’ One Touch 2000 FAP20 module was certified by the FBI for compliance with the agency’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) Image Quality Specifications (IQS) in a review by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division.
The biometric fingerprint sensor-maker also recently formed a partnership to outsource some of its software development to GlobalLogic.
