Introducing FingerTec® in Kazakhstan
( by Batyr Komurzoev, Sales Manager, CIS Countries )

As part of FingerTec’s expansion plan into CIS countries, I had been assigned to showcase our products in “Safety, Warning and Security” exhibition held recently in Astana from 25 to 27 August.

From the interest shown in the FingerTec products by the visitors and other companies participating in the exhibition, it was evident that FingerTec is indeed unique in this market. Meanwhile, I noticed that the biometric access control and time attendance systems in general are still new in the market of Kazakhstan.

The three days exhibition in this huge country was a success for FingerTec products. I met a number of companies that are keen to become our partners in those markets. Besides Kazakhstan, we had visitors from other CIS countries including Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.


The major feature of FingerTec products that attracted visitors was its unique design and the availability of firmware and software in Russian language. Other features of the FingerTec products were also much appreciated once the visitors got a more detailed explanation on the products.   

Kazakhstan has the largest economy among Central Asian countries. It has large reserves of oil and gas as well as minerals and metals. It also has considerable agricultural potential with its vast steppe lands accommodating livestock and grain production, as well as developed space infrastructure,

which took over all launches to the International Space Station. Kazakhstan also has a large industrial sector that rests on the extraction and processing of the natural resources and also on a relatively large machine building sector specializing in construction equipment, tractors, agricultural machinery, and some military items.

Astana is the new capital of Kazakhstan starting from 1997 when the President of the Republic made the decision to relocate the capital of the country from Almaty to Akmola city and renamed it as Astana. This historical decision was motivated by the advantageous geographical and political location of the city in the heart of the country.

The city of Astana has many wonderful architectural ensembles, which harmoniously combine modern design and oriental flair. The centerpiece of the new city is a mile-long rectangular boulevard of gardens and fountains around which is located the Kazakhstan's governmental hub.
