Quotes

...Chace Hatcher, Diamond Fortress CEO, says "DFT's highly accurate, easy to use, fingerprint solution, Onyx, utilizes a mobile device's existing hardware, the rear-facing camera, which allows it to be deployed to virtually all mobile devices. By combining Onyx with Swivel Secure's extremely secure tokenless platform solution, users and enterprises can be assured they have the most advanced multi-factor authentication available in one easy to implement and use system."
...Jonathan Simnett, Ariadne Capital senior advisor, seconded this point, stating that "The reality is that the dominance and nature of state healthcare in the UK will mean your innovations will not be adopted quickly enough to allow you to stay in business. Only if you succeed in the private sector or abroad will you be in a position to use your innovation to ultimately benefit the general UK population which is current served by a laggard buyer."
Gallifant concludes: "Aviva's International Solutions App is an outstanding example of the booming digital personal healthcare market and this partnership is also a great example of how big UK brands are encouraging and working with entrepreneurial British technology companies to fuel innovation and continually improve the quality of their customer service."
"Since winning the award, we have been trying to build upon our technology, to build partnerships and a museum network," explains Maniatis.  "Forging partnerships with the museums is the hard part of the business. With few exceptions, such as the Smithsonian in the US. It has licensed 10 objects which visitors can download online – most of the museums have not dealt with this side – it's so new and we are all discovering things together, this is why there have been delays."
