Oslo, September 29, 2020 – NEXT Biometrics (Oslo Bors: NEXT), a global company in fingerprint sensor technology, today announce it has received an additional purchase order of 6,000 PIV certified FAP20 biometric sensors from business partner Newland Payment Technology

The purchase order of 6,000 NEXT’s FAP20 sensors is an extension following the first commercial order with Newland (announced Feb 24, 2020). The FAP 20 sensors are in transit for integration in NPTs fingerprint-enabled payment terminals sold to an undisclosed national bank in Africa.

The order is a result of Nexts close collaboration with Newland Payment Technology to promote fingerprint-enabled payment terminals for financial inclusion projects in Africa. “We are pleased that our collaboration with Newland Payment Technology has resulted in additional business with a financial institution in Africa. This order demonstrates that our FAP20 sensors are well recognized by both our business partners and payment authorities and is a proof point of our strategy to grow with high-quality partners.” said Peter Heuman, CEO of NEXT Biometrics.

NEXT’s FAP20 module (One Touch 2000) was certified in late 2019 by the FBI as tested and in compliance with FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) Image Quality Specifications (IQS). A review of the test data was conducted by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division.
