Invixium Establishes New Middle East Headquarters in Dubai
Global Biometric Manufacturer Expands Global Footprint with a New MENA Headquarters Office and Strategic Hire
Toronto, Ontario (November 17, 2020) – Invixium, a premier manufacturer of innovative touchless biometric solutions, is opening a new office in Dubai, servicing the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa and Pakistan. The new MENA headquarters has been established to best respond to the growing interest in Invixium’s health-focused, temperature-based workforce management and access control biometric solutions that are in high demand as businesses reopen during COVID-19. Invixium’s new office is centrally located in Dubai Internet City, which is regarded as the innovation and technology hub of the region and where Microsoft, HP, IBM, Vodafone, 3M and other tech-centric companies maintain a presence.
To launch this expansion, Invixium also announces the hiring of Wisam Yaghmour as the Senior Director of Sales, MENA. Yaghmour joins Invixium after five years at HID Global, where he oversaw operations at the MEA corporate office and served as the lead for all sales activities in the region. He brings a solid track record in developing new markets, partnering with key strategic customers and expanding product distribution bases.
“As Invixium continues to develop solutions that resolve continually emerging security challenges, we’re focused on ensuring we have the best position to support our growing customer base,” said Shiraz Kapadia, CEO & President of Invixium. “Our new MENA headquarters in the technology epicenter of the region and the addition of a highly experienced sales leader who understands the nuances of this market allow us to continue our trajectory of innovation.”
“I was drawn to join Invixium because of their impressive advancements in biometrics that deliver the perfect blend of access control, visitor screening and workforce management,” said Wisam Yaghmour. “I am excited to expand Invixium’s presence in MENA, where new and existing customers can greatly benefit from the high level of confidence and security that these innovative solutions provide.”
Expansion into MENA supports Invixium’s recent product launches and updates. IXM TITAN with Enhancement Kit continues to be well-received worldwide as businesses strategize healthy reopening plans. The solution now pairs with the licensed software feature, IXM Health, to report on staff and visitor health through temperature screening measured at the medial canthus (tear duct). Further, IXM TITAN now allows for mask detection and face recognition while wearing a mask to enable businesses to safely reopen and follow government mandates for masks or face coverings to be worn in public spaces.
