• On the Singapore Exchange, TOTM Technologies is the only company in its industry -- as a leading integrated solutions and services provider in identity management and biometric technology. 

• It is the entity that emerged from Yinda Infocomm's acquisition of a controlling stake in mid-2021, and later 100%, of Indonesia's InterBIO. The latter won an Indonesian national tender for a biometrics project way back in 2011. It has since been maintaining the country's national biometric system. 

• Through further acquisitions and partnerships, the renamed TOTM has presented itself as a formidable player in its industry. The latest, as announced in a filing to the SGX recently, is particularly interesting given the high-profile of the partner.

• TOTM is probably a gem-in-waiting. What could re-rate the tiny S$58-million market cap TOTM are a bunch of contracts outside of Indonesia. They are a long time coming, and the stock price has been sliding since the burst of market enthusiasm following the acquisition of InterBIO.

• Meanwhile, read the press release below on its tie-up with Presight. It mentions potentially dramatic contributions to potential customers ...



Presight AI Holding Ltd (“Presight”), a G42 company, the leading UAE-based Big Data Analytics and AI company, and TOTM Technologies Limited (“TOTM”) have announced plans to establish a joint venture via their wholly-owned subsidiaries for the development and deployment of their combined proprietary technologies.

For national governments who are transitioning to, or looking to implement national digital identity programs, the Presight x TOTM joint venture entity offers a public-private approach which turns national digital identity from a cost center to a profit center, enabling revenue-generating digital transformation at the national level.

The Presight x TOTM joint venture entity aims to provide open-standards and off-the-shelf technologies which minimises and reduces vendor lock-in, burdensome maintenance costs, and hinder interoperability to establish a future-proof foundation and propel national digital transformation at the national level, particularly in Middle East, Africa and South-East Asia markets.

"The Presight x TOTM joint venture entity aims to provide open-standards and off-the-shelf technologies which minimises and reduces vendor lock-in, burdensome maintenance costs, and hinder interoperability to establish a future-proof foundation and propel national digital transformation at the national level, particularly in Middle East, Africa and South-East Asia markets."

The digital transformation include disrupting traditional industries by leveraging hardware-less e-KYC authentication, and building new digital systems and frameworks that may not require an internet connection for the deployment of contactless biometric authentication to unlock the power of a digital identity, secured with real-time liveness detection and supported with age classification.

Thomas Pramotedham, CEO of Presight, said: "We are excited to partner with TOTM to develop, integrate and deploy biometric AI solutions in the public safety, healthcare and fintech sectors in the Middle East, Africa and South-East Asia regions.

"Together, this partnership is uniquely positioned to further support our clients, and the region, on their digital transformation journeys, and elevate the digital ecosystem to deliver long-term and sustainable value with our combined technologies.

"A robust and dynamic digital identity platform is an essential cornerstone to develop a stronger and more inclusive, safer and resilient digital society. TOTM has a deep appreciation for our value proposition and adds strong execution experience and robust technology platforms for identity management and biometrics. We look forward to our future partnership.”

PierrePrunier yindaPierre Prunier, CEO of TOTM.Said Pierre Prunier, CEO & Executive Director of TOTM, "We are immensely proud to be announcing this joint venture with Presight, which is a significant milestone in TOTM’s journey as we lead the way with our unique approach which makes it easy for countries to make the transition to digital-first national ID systems through the adoption of the Public-PrivatePartnership model.

The establishment of this joint venture entity will allow us to address issues arising from outdated ICT architecture, better prepare us to adopt and adapt to emerging technologies and social imperatives, enable cost-effective implementation and operation, and will extend the reach and utility of foundational identities to provide increased value to governments and users alike.

The technologies that we are seeking to develop jointly with Presight will be based on modular architecture that allows for easy integration between government ministries, is cloud-native and API-driven.

With this approach, initial implementation can be done relatively quickly and cost-effectively, for a solid foundational platform that invites modular scalability and increasing functionality and connectivity, laying the foundation for a robust ecosystem of e-citizen services and digital enterprise solutions."
