PUC Founder (MSC) Bhd, a producer of Malaysian-made fingerprinting security products, plans to use its strategic alliance with Yayasan Bekas Perajurit Wilayah Persekutuan to penetrate the government sector.
Its managing director Teh Hon Seng said the company planned to promote and market its fingerprinting security products, FingerTec, to ministries, government agencies and government-owned institutions of higher learning.
Various parties have indicated their interest to us and they include the Finance Ministry, Defense Ministry and National Registration Department, he said.
He told reporters this after a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony in Kuala Lumpur yesterday between PUC and the Yayasan to form the alliance.
Teh and Yayasan chairman Lt Kol (Rtd) Datuk Dr Osman Kasap signed the MoU.
The Yayasan is the administrator of funds for education, charity and public welfare. Under the MoU, PUC subsidiary FingerTec Worldwide Sdn Bhd and Yayasan's subsidiary Hijrah Venture Holdings Sdn Bhd would introduce and promote the FingerTec line of products exclusively in government related projects.
Teh said FingerTec was a fingerprinting security product for time attendance and access control system.
He said that last year, PUC, which was listed on Mesdaq-KLSE, sold about 300 units of FingerTec, of which about 150 were installed overseas.
He said PUC would introduce its latest FingerTec series, known as FingerTec AC700, in March to cater to a larger market locally and abroad.
Unlike our existing AC600 series, the new product is a fingerprinting reader that needs to be linked up to a controller. The design of AC700 series is also more stylish and suitable for those who value officer interior decor, he said.
Teh expects the AC700 series to be available in the market in April.
