Precise Biometrics has received an order from Swisscom worth SEK 2.4 million, which will be invoiced before the end of the year. The order is a follow-up order and comprises both keyboards with fingerprint sensors and licenses of Precise BioMatch™.

Swisscom has been using the biometric solution since 2006 and has several thousands of users already deployed. The software solution is based on Precise BioMatch™ and utilizes Precise BioKeyboard™ as well as laptop-integrated fingerprint sensors.
