With this market launch, Precise Biometrics expands its offering outside the existing iOS based product range. The new Tactivo supports Android and further along even other mobile operating systems to ensure that Precise Biometrics are able to cover the full scope of Smartphones and Tablets in use with their Government and Enterprise customers. A complementary Mobile toolkit for Android will also be released to app developers during the spring.
To expedite the broadening of Precise Biometrics' mobile product range, the company has entered into a strategic partnership with Sony Mobile's consultancy unit in Lund, Sweden.
Thomas Marschall, CEO & President of Precise Biometrics AB says: "We chose Sony Mobile Consultant Business Unit as our partner due to their impressive track record within the mobile market and Android development, as well as with time to market in mind. Partnering with Sony will provide market availability much sooner than initially planned. The new products will allow us to increase our market potential to cover more than 90% of the Smartphones and Tablets in our focus segments. This is particularly important on the Smartphone side as our customers are often using several different brands of phones. With an offering covering the full spectrum, IT departments will only have to engage one vendor to secure the same level of security for all employees."
Björn Lundqvist, responsible for Engineering Services at Sony Mobile Consultant Business Unit states: "With our extensive experience in mobile Android devices we will support Precise Biometrics to rapidly and cost efficiently bring high quality Android products to the market."
