During BritWeek Miami, an annual celebration of creativity and innovation between the United Kingdom and the United States that started on March 6th this year and is running through tomorrow, March 12, the British Consul General and the UK Trade & Investment Office honored Cross Match Technologies.
The global provider of biometric identity management solutions was bestowed an award at the GREAT Business Innovation Awards 2014 gala. The award was in the category of Service Provision, recognizing Cross Match’s previous success in support of the UK Border Agency, and its current and future efforts in the Kingdom.
Currently, Cross Match is focussing on expanding its European footprint. A key part of this has to do with the new sales office the company has just opened in Arlington Business Park in Theale, Reading, west of London.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our contribution to the larger bilateral economic partnership between South Florida and the UK,” says John Hinmon, head of marketing for Cross Match. “The UK represents an important market for Cross Match. Our livescan fingerprint scanners are in virtually every constabulary and at most ports of entry into the UK, and our multi-biometric handheld solutions are in use with various UK security and defense forces.”
