Agility and ImageWare announce partnership

16/03/15

Agility and ImageWare Systems have announced an agreement to partner and sell biometric solutions to Agility partners and clients throughout the Middle East Gulf Coast region and in other parts of the world where Agility operates.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will create a new joint venture company, operated and managed by Agility. Agility, which is based in Kuwait, will operate the partnership, its sales, and its marketing efforts in the region. ImageWare will provide its biometric technology under a software sales agreement for the licensed territory. ImageWare will receive a Technology Transfer Fee from the joint venture company. ImageWare’s products, such as CloudID and GoVerifyID, will be sold and distributed by the joint venture company to Agility partners in the region and in other parts of the world. The companies anticipate that the joint venture will be operational in the second quarter of 2015.

As its first priority, the joint venture will target airport and customs brokerage venues where Agility is under contract to provide services, as well as other commercial opportunities in the region.

“Biometrics can play an integral role in providing additional security to supply chain management,” says Jim Miller, ImageWare's chairman and CEO. “ImageWare is both proud and excited to be a partner with one of the world's largest and most successful supply chain and logistics company. Agility's global relationships and their world class expertise in air, ocean, and road freight, supply chain systems, and warehousing will bring ImageWare's products and technologies to new and large markets.”
