Market Intelligence Firm Taps Integrated Biometrics for Expertise in Fingerprint Enrollment and Verification

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Integrated Biometrics, LLC, continues to cement its place as the industry leader in fingerprint enrollment and verification technology, contributing to a substantial report on the biometrics marketplace. Market intelligence firm Tractica recently tapped the developer of the world’s most rugged, compact, and energy-efficient FBI-certified fingerprint scanners for its insight on the general direction of the market, its key opportunities and challenges.

We covered a lot of ground with the Tractica analyst, with a particular focus on new applications of biometric technology, multi-modal utilization, and increased use in the private sector,” Steve Thies, Integrated Biometrics CEO said.

Thies participated in the study with company Vice President David Gerulski.

Tractica ( is a global market intelligence firm focusing on human interaction with technology, combining qualitative and quantitative research methodologies to provide a comprehensive view of emerging opportunities. The firm provides in-depth analysis of emerging technology trends, business issues, market drivers, and end-user demand dynamics across multiple application domains including home, mobile, health, automotive, enterprise, and industrial markets.

The report is an update of a previously released Tractica study, encompassing at least 13 biometric modalities, 11 major industry sectors, and 142 individual use cases.

“We are seeing consolidation within the biometrics market partially due to the inability of traditional prism based technologies to distinguish themselves from the competition. IB’s optical based LES film technology value proposition and price point has truly disrupted the global certified fingerprint sensor market,” Gerulski explained, adding, “The enthusiasm and interest in IB is reflective of the quality and care we put into everything we do as a company.”

IB’s patented LES technology enables Integrated Biometrics products to excel in mobile applications such as national ID, voter identification, border control, healthcare, law enforcement and terrorist database purposes among others.

Integrated Biometrics maintains a sought-after portfolio of small, lightweight, and mobile FBI-certified scanners featuring the Kojak 10-print roll scanner; Watson Mini two-finger roll scanner; Sherlock two-finger roll scanner; and Columbo single-finger scanner. The company also provides a non-certified series of fingerprint sensors with the same accuracy and durability as its certified sensors including the Curve product line which is routinely used for access control systems.

Each scanner is designed for durability with no breakable glass components and will withstand tough operating environments while providing accurate high-resolution fingerprint images even at extreme hot or cold temperatures.
