Interview with Bruce Hanson, President & CEO, Credence ID

All of our products are much more focused on the civil and commercial marketplace than what has been available in the past. We think that programs such as voter ID and census programs, pension and welfare distribution, border control and refugee management are the programs that will be very important in the coming years in civil projects. Because of the openness of the platform, the devices can also be used by the military and law enforcement agencies for functions like base protection, criminal watch lists, site exploitation and detainee management systems. These groups are very excited by the lower costs than the current offerings.

fB: What is the hottest growth area for Cross Match right now?

CM: Well clearly I think as I look back on your ten year anniversary/year in review issue, mobile really is a hot area for us. We are going to be launching the new SEEK Avenger this year, which is the next handheld in the SEEK family of multimodal biometric handhelds. We view the mobile market place and space as a strategic opportunity for the business.

fB: I couldn’t  agree more. It’s pretty exciting to see all of this activity start to really grow across a number of different verticals from health care to law enforcement, payments, financial. Mobile will really impact so many different areas.

CM: Very true and with the SEEK Avenger we really are looking at a number of market segments for that product beyond just the traditional defence or military application of the product.   We see a logical cross over into remote border applications where it can help expand the effectiveness of the agents in the field; those in remote or transmission/communication compromised situations; as well as law enforcement or special operations law enforcement –  I am thinking about crisis response teams or disaster recovery efforts
