Taipei, Dec. 11, 2018 — Leading provider of secure payments BITEL has recently launched a new point of sale (POS) terminal which features a fingerprint sensor manufactured by ARATEK, the global leader in biometric authentication.

Chun cited ARATEK’s track record for quality and customer support as main drivers for their choice of partner. He also emphasized that ARATEK’s certification from the FBI and its upcoming STQC certification give BITEL a great deal of confidence in aggressively pushing its product to markets such as India, Middle East, South East Asia and many other regions.
