BIO-key has made its first substantial entry into Australia with a new government sector client.
In a statement announcing the new contract, BIO-key declined to name the client in question, referring to it as “a government agency”. But the company did indicate that the deal comes by way of Aquion Pty Ltd., an Australia-based software solutions provider and BIO-key’s distribution partner in the country.
For Aquion’s part, the company’s head of sales, Audrey Lyon, explained that its government agency client “was looking for superior biometric security technology that could easily integrate with their Windows 10 platform,” with BIO-key’s “affordable yet secure” solutions proving appealing.
Indeed, the deal is another example of the benefits of BIO-key’s Microsoft Windows support, with another client announced this week having selected BIO-key’s SideTouch fingerprint scanners in part for their compatibility with Windows 10. Aquion’s client has also ordered SideTouch fingerprint scanners as well as its ID Director for Windows software platform.
Commenting on the news in a statement, BIO-key CEO and Chairman Mike DePasquale said,“Aquion plans an active campaign to market BIO-key solutions to their customers and prospects, providing BIO-key an ideal opportunity to fast-track our awareness in Australia.”
