|Suprema’s fingerprint solutions, including BioMini Slim, have been ordered by the government to prevent smuggling
Suprema, a leading global provider of technology in biometrics and security, recently announced it would provide its fingerprint solution to the Venezuelan government for the purpose of identifying authorised customers at supermarkets and pharmacies.
The Venezuelan government has prepared a robust system and procedure to combat the nation’s staple shortages and smuggling to Colombia. For this purpose, the government decided to enforce a mandatory fingerprint system to stop people from buying too much of a single item.
Thousands of Suprema BioMini fingerprint solutions, including BioMini Slim, have been ordered by the government thus far for supermarkets and pharmacies near the Colombian border, and the project is expected to grow nationwide next year, following the initial results.
According to Bioidentidad, leading the project as a local partner of Suprema in Venezuela, Suprema’s BioMini products were selected since it was evaluated as the best solution, with the following features:
- High Quality Fingerprint Capture - FBI Certified (FBI PIV/FIPs 201 and FBI Mobile ID FAP20)
- LFD (Live Finger Detection) Technology
- IP65-rated High Endurance in Ambient Conditions
“This project is noteworthy because it is a unique and new application for fingerprint solutions in preventing crime beyond the ordinary purpose of identification, and it will be an excellent reference for other customers,” said Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema Inc.
