Suprema reveals sales record for multimodal biometric terminal during virtual partner summit
For the first three months since its commercial launch, Suprema’s multimodal biometric terminal FaceStation F2 has set a new company record for the most units sold, the company revealed during its recent virtual partner summit.
The company’s new chairman James Lee praised the partners for their role in Suprema’s sales performance, discussed measures to deal with the pandemic at its headquarters, and introduced new company leaders.
Former Suprema Managing Director Hanchul Kim has been appointed the new head of the BioStar biometric platform, while Seongbin Choi has been promoted from the head of software research and development with Suprema to lead R&D for BioStar.
“FaceStation F2 hit record sales for most units sold three months into the launch. This is the most success than with any other product we’ve ever released,” Kim notes. “Thanks in part to the success of FaceStation F2, Suprema’s sales units of face recognition devices more than doubled in 2020. With the demand for contactless solutions on the rise, we expect face readers to account for around thirty percent of entire unit sales in 2021.”
The company presented its five-year plan to become a leading provider in the field of Access-Control-as-a-Service (ACaaS) for the enterprise market with its biometric, big data and cloud technologies, during the event.
“Suprema has a strong visual recognition, data analytics and AI technology that will serve well in advancing to object and motion detection, so it really is a natural path for us to expand to the field of fire, intrusion alarm and video surveillance and take BioStar platform to the cloud to offer a total solution to higher-end enterprise customers,” Kim explains.
Suprema recently received multiple ISO certifications for the BioStar 2 biometric platform.
The company also named Chief Strategic Officer Andrew Kim, who joined the company in September, as the head of MOCA Systems, which is a startup affiliated with Suprema and specializing in mobile credential solutions.
The X-Station 2, an advanced card reader with a touchscreen interface and a QR code module option, is scheduled for a launch during the first half of 2021, and was revealed in a sneak-peek during the event.
