WALL, N.J. and DHAKA, Bangladesh, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety, and Tiger IT BD Ltd. (Tiger IT), a leader in both prepackaged and customized software solutions, today announced that they have been awarded an exclusive contract for the biometric-based credentialing solution for the Bangladesh Voter Registration Project.
