Frost & Sullivan Lauds Credence ID’s Adaptable Approach

Mobile biometrics developer Credence ID has received fresh accolades from Frost & Sullivan. The growth consultancy has recognized Credence ID with its 2015 Asia-Pacific Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award.

In giving the award, Frost & Sullivan was keen to point out Credence ID’s focus on low costs and versatility. “The company prides itself on offering high value, which is evident from the usability of its products,” notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Ram Ravi. “Furthermore, by designing products that work on the Android platform, Credence ID presents customers with the flexibility to develop their own applications,” enabling them to establish their own branding if they choose.

Moreover, noting the company’s work in helping to build national ID programs such as India’s Aadhaar initiative and others around the world, Ravi points out that “as national ID programs are unique and predominantly utilized in emerging economies, the high emphasis on cost makes it difficult to conceptualize an idea and translate it into a product,” adding that “Credence ID has successfully navigated this challenge and leveraged its skills as a platform provider to cater to system integrators and value-added resellers.”

Credence has released a couple of notable new solutions over the last year or so. The Trident is an Android-based multimodal biometric device with highly accurate iris, fingerprint, and face scanning capabilities featuring Integrated Biometrics’ Watson Mini technology. And the CredenceOne mobile fingerprint reading device was recently deployed in Nigeria to authenticate students taking state-administered exams. With its new Frost & Sullivan award, Credence ID might expect further such contracts in the near future.
