Grabba Fingerprint readers have wide application where mobile ID checking and verification is required such as in Border Protection, Law Enforcement, Voter Registration and Controlling Entry into sensitive sites.

The Grabba innovative and configurable design allows the user to select not only the correct Fingerprint reader, but also up to five other technologies to include in the one Grabba unit, so as to precisely and cost-effectively meet the needs of the use case. Those other technologies include Barcode scanners, MRZ (passport) readers, RFID readers, Contact Smartcard readers and Magnetic Stripe readers.

Another advantage of the unique Grabba design is that it allows Grabba units to be simply upgraded to work with later model smartphones and to add other technologies without the need to purchase new Grabba units. This substantially reduces the Total Cost of Ownership of Grabba units.
