Bratislava, Slovakia (February, 2012) Global fingerprint technology leader Innovatrics announces that they have agreed to work with Itautec on software projects in the Brazilian and South American market that require biometric authentication and matching solutions. Itautec has selected Innovatrics as their "vendor-of-record." Strategic technological partner in order to match business requirements from its clients in the region.

"Itautec is a well-known ATM, kiosk and computer manufacturer in the Brazilian and South American markets, and also has a key role in project deployment and IT services," says Jan Lunter (CEO) "We are very happy and excited about the selection and look forward to working closely with Itautec on software projects that require biometric authentication and matching."
