Fulcrum Biometrics expands into Europe with acquisition of UK-based DelaneyBiometrics
Fulcrum Biometrics INC., an international provider of biometrics and identity management solutions and the developer of the FbF® Rapid Multi-Biometric Enablement Software Suite, today announced that it has acquired the DelaneyBiometrics business, including intellectual property and distribution rights, from Delaney Secure Ltd., a UK biometrics company specialising in cloud-based time and attendance and access control.
The acquisition is aimed at strengthening Fulcrum’s off-the-shelf biometric solution offerings for small and medium enterprises, particularly in the areas of access control and time and attendance.
The three key biometric solutions that Fulcrum has acquired are DelaneyCloud, DelaneyID, and DelaneyGatekeeper.
DelaneyCloud is a SaaS based plug-n-play biometric timesheet solution which is quick to deploy, manages cost, improves efficiency and provides independent auditable timesheet data from any web browser. DelaneyCloud is specifically targeted at construction companies and other businesses with temporary, mobile and remote workforces. DelaneyGatekeeper and DelaneyID are deployed for access control management in secure facilities such as datacenters and factories, as well as membership driven organizations such as health clubs and gyms.
Ken Nosker, CEO of Fulcrum Biometrics said: “The addition of DelaneyBiometrics intellectual property further increases Fulcrum Biometrics’ share in the biometrics solution market, and expands our geographic reach into Western and Central Europe. With the backing of our parent corporation, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., Fulcrum is aggressively expanding our multi-modal biometric solution offerings and looking to move strategically into new territories.”
“The complete integration of the DelaneyBiometrics products into the Fulcrum Biometrics solution stack is expected to take several months,” said DelaneyBiometrics Managing Director, Paul Guckian.
“Our customers can expect to receive the same great support and products as before, together with a significantly larger development team to further develop the solutions and achieve global scale. Fulcrum’s leadership position in biometrics can bring organizational capability and sales growth that would have taken years to achieve organically.”
