The BC government first became a BIO-key client back in 2012, leveraging its fingerprint authentication technology for “self-service access for identity information management and authentication services,” according to a statement from BIO-key. Now, it’s expanding its use of BIO-key technology to a new facility.

Commenting on the new contract, BIO-key CEO Mike DePasquale asserted that “[b]y leveraging international standards for biometric data, BIO-key is able to provide the Province with a flexible, secure, and highly scalable platform for managing biometrics across a broader range of use-cases.”

The contract win comes at a time of growth for the company. Earlier this month, BIO-key issued a fiscal update depicting markedly higher year-over-year revenues, and the company also just appointed a new member to its Board of Directors who could help to extend the company’s reach in the Asian market.
