Integrated Biometrics Announces Partnership with Mobizent

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Integrated Biometrics, developer of the world’s smallest and lightest FBI-compliant fingerprint scanners, is pleased to announce its partnership with Mobizent, a leading mobile solutions provider for the fielded workforce specializing in work order, ticketing, and mobile tracking. Mobizent has recently completed a successful integration of Integrated Biometrics’ Columbo FAP 30 fingerprint scanner into the MobiCHK™ product line for use with Intermec CN70e hand held devices.

“We’re thrilled to see our product contribute as an essential element of a mobile solution with such widespread business and government use in housing, environmental, and law enforcement,” Steve Thies, Integrated Biometrics CEO, said.

As part of providing innovative solutions, Mobizent is utilizing the Columbo as part of its MobiCHK line of products used for capturing prints and getting results in the field with end-to-end encryption.

Mobizent helps businesses and governments interface with their back-end databases and proprietary enterprise solutions to make them more effective and efficient. Typically, the company’s mobile field solutions deliver a return on investment in less than one year by providing optimal performance, accuracy and reliability.

Columbo is the world’s smallest, lightest, and fastest FBI PIV FAP 30 certified single-fingerprint scanner with a full featured SDK to enable effective integration into applications requiring certified quality images. It is able to withstand the toughest operating environments with minimal maintenance while providing accurate high-resolution fingerprint scans in virtually any environment: indirect or direct sunlight thanks to its use of Integrated Biometrics’ patented light emitting sensor (LES) film that can meet the stringent image performance requirements of the FBI in a “thin” form factor less than 1 mm thick.

“The Intermec device is an industry workhorse and the adaption of Columbo to our MobiCHK system provides high performance and cost-effective functionality for end users,” said Mobizent President and CEO Ramesh Swamy, adding, “The Integrated Biometrics LES fingerprint sensor technology provides not only improved resolutions, but improved ruggedness and improved image capture for all of our customers.”

The LES film is a multilayer, polymer composite. Dispersed within the film, at the nano-scale level, are particles that luminesce in the presence of an electric field. When a finger is placed on the film, the live skin of the ridges of the fingerprint completes the low level electric circuit which causes the particles in the film to luminesce narrow wavelength light, producing a highly accurate, high resolution analog image of the fingerprint.

Mobizent has seen rapid acceptance of its new MobiCHK solution with local and federal agencies of different states and the U.S. government. For more information, visit
