ImageWare Systems Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) enjoyed strong stock volume Apr. 29, with 367,133 shares changing hands, nearly double its three-month average volume of 191,601 shares.
The sudden uptick in volume is being spurred by the San Diego, Calif.-based mobile solutions company’s Apr. 28 announcement that it has formed a partnership with IBM that brings the power of IWS’ patented, multi-modal biometrics user authentication and cloud-based identity management platform to the IBM Cloud Platform, code name: Blue Mix.
IBM BlueMix customers can now leverage ImageWare’s Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), a cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management and user authentication platform, to easily provide user authentication solutions that meet their specific business needs.
Build Biometric Authentication
ImageWare Systems fundamentally changes the way businesses build biometric authentication by bringing it into the realm of mobile technology and the cloud.
A key component is IWS’ GoCloudID™, a patented cloud-based biometric IDaaS platform that manages access to biometric enrollment and verification.
The IWS system, in addition to being algorithm and hardware agnostic, enables plug-n-play and can be deployed globally as an enterprise end-to-end or modular solution. GoCloudID also includes a software development kit (SDK), which enables rapid integration into existing company programs and applications.
With the SDK, GoCloudID can be implemented in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks.
“Worldwide mobile device payments are expected to reach $400 billion by 2015, with more and more mobile devices being designed with biometric features, “said ImageWare Systems’ CEO Jim Miller.
On Apr. 29, IWSY’s share price closed at $1.85, up 13 cents from the previous day’s close of $1.72.

Premier Mortgage Resources Inc. To Change Name and Ticker Apr. 30
In other news, Premier Mortgage Resources Inc.’s (OTCPINK: PMRS) stock volume surged Apr. 29, with 51,758,840 shares changing hands, nearly double its three-month average volume of 30,313,536 shares.
The high volume comes on the heels of the Grandville, Mich.-based mortgage resource firm turned natural-supplements company announced that it has launched its newly designed online store and the first two products of its Alternaturals product line have been made available to the public.
The news comes just a few days before the official company name and symbol change takes effect.
To Release 10 New Products
The company plans to release another 10 products this year in the all-natural, alternative healthcare space, and an addition half dozen in the medical marijuana space.
Initial test markets show a tremendous response to the healthy alternatives to, and the unique packaging, which more closely resemble something a pharmacist would prepare then a vitamin or supplement, has been shown to be far more preferable to consumers and has the added effect of letting them know this is not just another supplement, but a potent natural solution to common ailments that can be just as effective as prescription drugs without the negative side effects or internal damage that comes with chemical medications.
The company's name will change to Alternaturals, Inc., and the symbol to "ANAS" on Apr. 30, 2014, when the company officially steps into phase two of its growth strategy and starts pushing its sales and marketing.
Once the name change takes effect, the company will then gear up to start making its partnerships, distribution deals, and next series of products known to the world. Alternaturals, Inc. is planning to really make a splash, and management feels the company has the tools, products, and partnerships to dominate their market and deliver top quality products to consumers.
On Apr. 29, PMRS’ share price closed at 0.0058 cents, down 0.0018 cents from the previous day’s close of 0.0076 cents
