OSLO, NORWAY – 16 AUGUST 2017, – Biometric technology company Zwipe is proud to announce that Priority Group Holdings (Pty) Ltd., a leading digital security provider and installer based in South Africa has chosen Zwipe Access as it’s preferred biometric access control solution. The two companies have signed a Distribution Agreement that includes the marketing, sale and distribution of Zwipe Access cards for the Southern African Development Community (SADC), representing a territory composed of 15 countries across the southern part of the continent.
Speaking on the new partnership, John Laws, Zwipe’s Director of Sales EMEA said “biometric authentication, and fingerprint scanning in particular, is rapidly being adopted in Africa, both for payment and for secure identification. With Priority Group Holdings experience in high security system integration, and with Zwipe’s unique on-card authentication solutions, the timing is now ideal to introduce Zwipe Access to the region,” adding “we are pleased that Priority Group Holdings has selected our solution, and we are excited that their customers are already testing Zwipe Access. We have seen great interest from governmental, institutional and enterprise customers throughout Europe and the Middle East, and we see the African market as key to our global growth strategy, this would not be possible without dedicated local partners like Priority Group Holdings who truly understand the local cultures, demands and the value of upgrading to biometrics at a fraction of the cost, all without needing to change or upgrade existing systems and infrastructure.”
