Idemia said Friday its new fingerprint service works to schedule service appointments, automate enrollment procedures and electronically submit fingerprint data in compliance with Financial Industry Regulatory Authority standards.

The FINRA fingerprint service covers 500 IdentoGO Enrollment Centers and is also designed to handle enrollment status checks and reports.
