Suprema and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS Partnering into Expanded Business Relationship to Deliver Biometrics and IP Access Control across the UK

Birmingham, UK and Seoul, Korea, Apr 30, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema Inc., a leading global provider of technology in biometrics and security, today announced with ENTERTECH SYSTEMS an expanded partnership that now includes the United Kingdom and Ireland. ENTERTECH SYSTEMS is not only the new official operating partner in the UK market but also continues operating in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, delivering Suprema biometric products and applications for use with access control systems and workforce management solutions.

"Suprema is pleased to expand our partnership with ENTERTECH SYSTEMS to now include the United Kingdom and Ireland," says Young S. Moon, Vice President, Suprema Inc. "Their technical support team has an established track record of being very responsive, results-driven and are well-equipped to work with our local customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland to ensure complete customer satisfaction. And the new partnership is also expected to deliver an enhanced level of support amongst our local partners in the country."

Last year, ENTERTECH SYSTEMS won the Suprema Best Global Partner Award - the highest recognition awarded annually among Suprema's global partner network; their well-known customer service focus is one of the key reasons they have been chosen as Suprema's official operating partner in the UK and Ireland.

"We are proud to be the official Suprema operating partner in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to be backed by Suprema, the premier provider of next-generation IP access control and the global market leader in biometric access control," says Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS.

In the UK, ENTERTECH SYSTEMS offers Suprema's line of biometric devices in all of their markets, including fingerprint recognition, face recognition, card and PIN readers. Based in Birmingham, ENTERTECH SYTEMS will be working closely with Norbain SD, a distributor of Suprema's technology and products in the UK security market, which is one of Europe's most successful distributors of CCTV, IP Video, access control and intruder detection equipment.

"The unique combination of Suprema biometric products and expert support services from ENTERTECH SYSTEMS will help increase the local technical expertise in biometrics that we can offer Norbain customers," said Gareth Ellams, Divisional Director of Business Development at Norbain.

"This expansion is the result of our success in North America, and the unique value BioConnect has delivered to our access control partners. BioConnect is an application that provides a seamless synchronization between Suprema devices and leading access control systems, enabling easy biometric integration into existing and future deployments. Expanding our service base to the United Kingdom and Ireland and having our expert technical team available locally means we can better serve our partners and customers, many of whom have operations in both regions," adds Douglas.

Suprema and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS will be at IFSEC International 2014 from 17-19 June at ExCel London, stand #E1400. They will be offering product demonstrations and information on their newest technologies.
