Imageware’s Modernized Identity Platform is Winning Large Deals and Growing Demand

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2022 / — Imageware® (OTCQB: IWSY) (“Imageware” or “the Company”), a leader in biometric identification and authentication, is winning large competitive contracts with their modernized Identity Platform, with more in the pipeline.

Imageware began rebuilding the Company in March 2020, including upskilling the team, modernizing legacy products, and driving a focused go-to-market approach. These changes are resonating with both customers and the marketplace.

Since 1998, state, local, and federal law enforcement (LE) have been an important segment for Imageware when they developed and deployed the first digital booking software for some of the largest LE agencies in the world. In 2021, Imageware redesigned their flagship product to deliver innovative features, a flexible and mobile UI, a Cloud-based and containerized backend, and modules that can be purchased in part or as a unified platform. Their highly touted 24/7 mission critical U.S.-based technical support team is what many customers say “seals the deal” against the competition.

This market-leading support and modernized browser-based platform allowed the Company to win their largest Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deal to date with the King County, Washington’s Sheriff’s Department, worth at least $1.5M over five years. Imageware migrated millions of records to the Cloud to enable officers to conduct searches and create lineups in seconds from any device. This win opens the door to 18,000 other LE agencies in North America looking to move away from their stagnant incumbents to improve operational efficiency by leveraging innovative, technology-first solutions.

Imageware’s Biometric Engine® (BE) provides fast, accurate 1:1 authentication, 1:N identification, and X:N searching for LE and other applications. The BE was revamped in early 2022 and is pivotal to the Company’s technology portfolio, having been leveraged across the federal government.

Last week, the Company won a large federal project worth $4.6M over five years, which includes fast and accurate matching combined with Imageware’s Identify module, a part of the new LE platform. While this win provides substantial revenue growth for 2022, it represents much more: a critical reference for Imageware to other agencies who are looking to replace their aging systems. More details will be announced soon.

With a healthy pipeline for 2022 and 2023, Imageware is poised to take off to meet the industry’s critical need to identify and validate identities with biometrics.
