Invixium takes Canadian biometrics to Johannesburg

Johannesburg, South Africa

Invixium, a manufacturer of modern, IP-based biometric solutions marked its official launch into South Africa with an exclusive private event in Johannesburg on September 18th, 2019. Hosted in collaboration with their distribution partner Pyro-Tech, the event was held at the Sandton Sun hotel, located in the heart of Johannesburg’s economic hub for businesses and international travellers.

The audience comprised of prominent access control panel manufacturers, local system integrators and security consultants, who were enlightened on the Invixium product offerings especially IXM Titan. They became acquainted with the portfolio during the live hands-on demos and appreciated the opportunity to ask their questions direct to the manufacturer.

The event was kicked off with brief introductions by Sandra Santos - Marketing Manager at Invixium, followed by Joe Ferreira - Managing Director of Pyro-Tech, who extended their gratitude to the audience on behalf of both companies for donating time out of their schedules to attend the event.

The highlight of the day was an impactful keynote presentation by Shiraz Kapadia - the CEO & President of Invixium, which covered the company’s 7 year history, philosophies and offerings specific to the South African market. Shiraz’s extensive 18+ years of experience in the biometric industry resonated with the audience as he confidently spoke about the “lessons learned” from his dramatic career shift from being the Chief Operating Officer at Bioscrypt to becoming the founder of a startup company and also debunked many common myths about biometrics. Midway through the keynote and as an example of showing Invixium’s differentiation, Shiraz revealed the performance of Sense 2 equipped with Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging sensor by successfully authenticating with a wet finger live on stage.

Following lunch, the event continued with an overview presentation of Invixium’s latest software upgrade, IXM Web 2.0 with IXM Time – a workforce management solution, by Sandeep Chatterjee - Regional Sales Manager for Africa at Invixium. Immediately afterwards, audience members were given the opportunity in a break-out session to explore the live demo of the complete product portfolio including Merge, Mycro, Sense 2, Touch 2 and Titan, all connected on a local network running IXM Web 2.0.  Attendees were able to take in the innovative products and the product packaging which displayed Invixium’s design culture.

The day concluded with some closing words by Shiraz and Joe and finally an elegant cake and champagne ceremony to toast the partnership.
