Uruguayan payment and collection provider Redpagos has selected Integrated Biometrics’ fingerprint technology to verify the identity of its customers at 460 locations across the country.
According to a LinkedIn post from Latin America Vice President of Integrated Biometrics, James M. Bell, the solution is provided by CommandLine, IB’s systems integration partner for Uruguay.
Redpagos serves over a million people and completes a total of 7 million transactions per month.
Fingerprints are collected from new users upon registration and all transactions are verified against the national vital statistics database, known as DNIC (Dirección Nacional de Identificación Civil). That, says Bell, translates to fast and accurate connections and identification.
The company has made progress in Latin America with a recent contract signed by its partner Akiyama with the Brazilian Federal Police, and a series of financial institutions in Mexico signed up to use its biometric fingerprint scanners last year. .
IB recently appointed biometrics industry veteran Shawn O’Rourke as its new CEO, and the company expects to reach $ 50 million in annual revenue in 2021.
