The designers have done a brilliant job and deserve recognition at the highest level.”
Joey Pritikin, VP of Sales and Marketing commented: “We’re thrilled that the jury has recognized the impact that beautiful design can have on a product’s overall functionality. The InSight One was designed with users at its heart – with our aim being to provide a sense of ease when using a biometric system, an experience that for many may be a first. Its design and appearance make for a more efficient process and greater security. The Good Design Awards hold a historic place in marking good design, and we couldn’t be happier to receive this globally recognized award.”
