MorphoTrust has revealed a series of fingerprinting contracts with Maine, Michigan and Florida that could yield in excess of $54 million in revenue over the next six years. New contracts have been forged with the Maine State Police and State Bureau of Investigation, the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget and the Florida Department of Financial Services support.

Enrollments – including legacy business – for the initiative are projected to jump from 63,000 to 170,000 applicants per year.
MorphoTrust’s work in Florida will see the Department of Financial Services implement fingerprinting to enroll insurance agents statewide. The project is expected to see some 68,000 applicants fingerprinted and enrolled per year spanning a total of 69 third-party enrollment centers in 61 Florida cities.
