LUND, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) -

Precise Biometrics has been awarded an order to supply 50,000 licenses of Precise Match-on-Card™ for an employee ID card program to one of the largest Police Departments in the USA. The total project value for Precise Biometrics is expected to reach SEK 2-5 million.

Precise Biometrics supplies the well-proven and widely deployed Precise Match-on-Card™ technology to enable the Police Department to prove their employees' identities in a fast, secure and reliable way. The total project value is expected to reach at least SEK 2 million, comprising both Precise Match-on-Card™ software and fingerprint readers. The project will run during 2008 and 2009, and may result in additional hardware orders.

Often looked upon as a US leader in law enforcement technology, the department is now modernizing internal IT-programs. Through the introduction of an employee card with Precise Match-on-Card™ for Java cards, the Police Department will improve its security.

Precise Biometrics has for several years successfully supplied Match-on-Card to other prestigious US customers, such as the Department of State, NASA and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).

Precise Biometrics' CEO Thomas Marschall sees this most recent win in the US as a positive step towards achieving the company's vision. "Supplying our technology to one of the largest US Police Departments confirms our position as the market leader within the Match-on-Card field. It proves the true value of our technology as it reduces costly password administration and makes everyday life easier for the user. Large organizations see great advantages with our Match-on-Card as its flexibility offers freedom of choice when it comes to smart cards, applications and hardware. This flexibility adds value not only to large-scale national ID cards but also to employee ID and similar types of card programs. We trust we will see more of such projects in the near future ", says Thomas Marschall.

The solution is delivered through a cooperation of partners, of which one is a leading system integrator to federal, state and local government in North America. The project includes a mix of software and hardware deliverables from Precise Biometrics. The first hardware orders for Precise 200 MC and Precise 250 MC fingerprint readers as well as the 50,000 Precise Match-on-Card™ licenses have been delivered.

Precise Biometrics has more than 12 millon deployed card licenses and close to 80 million contracted licenses for its Match-on-Card technology.
