Business areas

Precise Biometrics is organized into two business areas: Fingerprint Technology and Mobile Smart Card Solutions.

Fingerprint Technology
In this business area we develop and sell fingerprint software for convenient and secure authentication of people’s identity in mobile phones, smart cards and other products. Our software provides the best user experience for products with small fingerprint sensors and limited processing power and memory, regardless of the sensor technology or operating system. The software is sold primarily to sensor manufacturers for integration into mobile devices, tablets and other products with fingerprint technology, which generates royalties based on their sales.

Mobile Smart Card Solutions
In this business area we sell Tactivo, a product portfolio of smart card readers for smartphones and tablets. Tactivo enables convenient and secure mobility in organizations that require smart cards to log in to IT systems. Tactivo contributes to a more efficient and better working environment, increased information security and reduced operating costs.

Tactivo is marketed through a network of partners in America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia as a component in complete integrated solutions for mobile access to information and resources. The business model enables broad-based, cost-efficient sales, distribution and installation of the products in companies, organizations and government agencies that require smart cards to log into IT systems.
