IBT targets the government sector with the acquisition of tailor-made solutions

Integrated biometric technology (IBT) acquired Tailored Solutions Corporation in an effort to increase its visibility in the government sector. Tailored Solutions is an Oregon-based software developer best known for providing government agencies with the technology they need to conduct criminal background checks.

To this end, Tailored Solutions’ offerings allow government agencies to search names and fingerprints stored in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) databases. It is also compatible with various state-level Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). These background checks are an integral part of the hiring process in many regulated professions, including education, childcare, and medical care.

Some states require similar background checks for those registering for firearms licenses. IBT itself is best known as a provider of facial, fingerprint and iris biometric solutions for law enforcement, and believes the new additions to its portfolio will help attract the attention of agencies. state and federal governments. The two companies did not disclose terms of the acquisition.

“We are thrilled to welcome Eric Murphy, Bronson Utter and Bruce Hart to our IBT family,” said IBT CEO Charles Carroll. “This acquisition allows us to offer state agencies a complete solution for collecting, adjudicating and tracking fingerprint-based background checks.”

Tailored Solutions is launching a new Flex-Check RAP BACK solution that notifies agency administrators if an employee is arrested after first completing a background check upon hiring. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations will be one of the first agencies to take advantage of the proceeds.

IBT, meanwhile, recently opened a new headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee. Grand View Research has predicted that the demand for AFIS systems will reach $12.46 billion by 2025, while Stratistics Market Research Consulting is even more optimistic and predicts an AFIS market of $26.55 billion by 2026. However, the two new reports were published before the onset of COVID-19.
