“Our growth is due to our team’s tireless innovation not only in developing newer and better fingerprint biometric technology, but in responding to the continually changing needs of our strategic partners and the customers they serve,” CEO Steve Thies said, adding, “The Inc. 5000 listing is a reflection of this extraordinary attention to customer service.”

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment -- its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015.

Integrated Biometrics FBI-certified fingerprint scanners are the most reliable, lightest weight in the world with the lowest power consumption in the certified market. Each scanner is designed for durability with no breakable glass components and is able to withstand tough operating environments with minimal maintenance, while providing accurate high-resolution fingerprint images even at extreme hot or cold temperatures.

The patented LES technology at the core of each of the company’s products withstands scratching and works flawlessly in both direct and indirect sunlight. Whereas other scanners based on older optical prism technology require a secondary light source to illuminate a fingerprint, LES film actually emits light itself. When a finger is placed in contact with LES film, the underside of the film produces a fingerprint image in light, capturing the image in less time and without the need for special environmental considerations.

This unique aspect enables Integrated Biometrics products to be used in mobile applications for national ID, voter identification, border patrol, finance, healthcare, law enforcement, state department visas, employment background checks, and criminal and terrorist database purposes among others.

The Integrated Biometrics portfolio of small, lightweight, and mobile FBI-certified scanners includes the Kojak 10-print roll scanner; Watson Mini two-finger roll scanner; Sherlock two-finger roll scanner; and Columbo single-finger scanner. The company also provides a non-certified series of fingerprint sensors with the same accuracy and durability as its certified sensors including the Curve and eCurve products which are routinely used for financial transactions, database enrollment, authentication of computer or electronic device access, kiosk transactions and more.

The Inc. 5000 list was developed in 2007 as a way to provide a deeper, richer understanding of the entrepreneurial landscape and capture a broader spectrum of success. The Inc. 5000 ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period, with all 5,000 honoree companies individually profiled on The list is associated with Inc. magazine, the leading entrepreneurial advocate for 33 years running.
