Founded in 2001, we are known for a
history of innovative firsts, including
being the UK’s first multi-biometric
technology company.


First company in the world to revolutionise the airport ID pass application process with an online system.

Airports can replace lengthy pass application processes with MTrust, which enables the management of employee information and pass applications online.


World first deployment of facial recognition to measure the passenger journey in an airport.

In 2011, Gatwick Airport went live with MFlow to measure the passenger journey through the terminal using facial recognition.


First deployment of iris-at-distance technology to enrol and identify passengers in a UK airport.

In June 2011, Gatwick Airport went live with MFlow to enrol and identify passengers using iris-at-distance technology to automate common departure lounge access and domestic boarding. The technology had previously not been used in the public domain in the UK or integrated with automatic gates anywhere in the world.


First to integrate CSCS smart cards for site access.

We abled these cards to be used to get through site access points, using MSite.


First to integrate iris recognition with Desfire smartcards

Enabling super secure multi-modal template-on-card access control for the London 2012 Olympic Park.


First to deploy biometrics for dispensing medication to the UK’s prison population.

Working with the Department of Health, we deployed iris and fingerprint recognition at healthcare facilities within 65 UK prisons.


First to deploy biometrics at a UK airport.

We deployed biometric access systems for 19,000 airport workers in all 3 of Manchester Airport’s terminals.


First UK company to import and deploy hand geometry recognition technology.

Long before today’s export channels were established, we were importing this new and exciting technology directly from around the world to bring the benefits to our UK customers.


UK’s first multi-biometric technology company.

In 2001, Neil Norman gave up his role at Accenture to follow his dreams and start a biometric technology business.
