SA innovator takes on the world

BIMS and its supporting system were designed and built in South Africa at a cost of over R20 million in R&D and two and a half years of man-hours by a team of skilled software and firmware developers and engineers.

Ideco says there is a huge global interest in this configurable, mobile advanced biometric identification solution. BIMS enables biometric identification across a range of modalities – from fingerprint through to iris scanning – as well as being highly mobile and readily configurable. It can be rolled out rapidly in any environment requiring agile identification and processing of crowds.

It is capable of six biometric modalities and delivers a full range of connectivity options, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GSM, GPS, LAN and cloud. Multi-functional and configurable, the unit has been designed to the world’s most stringent hardware and software security standards, and harnesses intelligent power management for prolonged battery life of up to 12 hours.

Ideco CEO, Marius Coetzee, says there is already a massive interest in BIMS. “We specifically chose this event for the launch because BIMS is a solution of international significance. It is unlike any other solution currently on the market for biometric user identification and access control.”

The need for secure and authentic identity management has reached crisis proportions globally, with demand for advanced, agile and multi-modal biometric identity management. Coetzee says most of the systems currently on the market offer single factor authentication. “Until now, no one could deliver six modalities in a single portable device, which can be used in any configuration for multiple levels of identification, as well as integrating into existing enterprise systems quickly and easily.”

BIMS enables agile, rapid roll-out of advanced biometrics-based solutions and has relevance for both the public and private sector across any number of verticals. With the intelligent use of APIs, the solution can be integrated with any backend system.
