Next Biometrics lands $100K purchase order, FPC scores follow-on design win
Next Biometrics has received a new purchase order for its fingerprint sensors from an existing U.S.-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution provider partner.
According to a company announcement, the $100,000 order comes from an existing partner, with the biometric sensors scheduled to be shipped in June 2021.
The unnamed company is reportedly buying Next’s fingerprint sensors for a variety of applications, including law enforcement, healthcare, local government, education, finance, and insurance.
“Given the increasing volume of cyber-related crime and the global unmet cybersecurity needs, we believe this is an interesting market segment,” said Next CEO Peter Heuman.
The new order comes after a previous one placed last month by Next’s Indian partner Mobiocean, who purchased a substantial amount of fingerprint sensors for use with POS devices.
“Enabling new and innovative products that our customers build their future on, is how we best scale NEXT Biometrics towards success,” Heuman concluded.
